The RV Industry Association is taking a leadership role in reducing the repair event cycle times for consumers seeking to repair and maintain their RVs, by working to increase the number of trained RV technicians. The association’s Board of Directors approved a comprehensive strategic plan and multi-million-dollar investment to address RV owner satisfaction by creating a supporting foundation, the RV Technical Institute (RVTI), to solve the RV industry’s shortage of trained technicians. The institute will focus on the creation of world-class RV technician training curriculum by utilizing industry subject matter experts in conjunction with professional curriculum developers and technical writers
The Technicians in Training (TnT) program delivers hands-on technical training to RV service technicians in dealerships throughout the United States. Our goal is to improve the educational opportunities for techs at all levels to ensure that consumer needs for RV repairs and maintenance are met on a timely basis. We work with association manufacturer members and suppliers to deliver high-quality, hands-on technical training to service technicians throughout the country. Training takes place in multiple locations at, or close, to the dealership where they are located.Learn More
