The finalists in the 2019 RV Technical Institute Top Tech Challenge have been chosen and we’re about to find out who has the chops to be the “Top Tech” in the RV industry.

The event, held at RVX: The RV Experience on Wednesday, March 13 from 4:00pm – 6:00pm, will pit six RV service technicians against each other in a winner-take-all competition for a $10,000 cash prize and the title of Top Tech Champion. Held in front of an excited industry audience full of dealers, manufacturers, suppliers and the media, the Top Tech Challenge will highlight the industry-wide need for skilled labor, and how we can work together to promote the role of service and bring in more qualified technicians to the industry.

“The Top Tech Challenge is our industry’s way of promoting and rewarding skilled labor technicians in the market,” said RV Technical Institute Executive Director Curt Hemmeler. “These are unsung heroes and we applaud their efforts to keep millions of Americans on the road and enjoying the RV lifestyle.”

All of the selected technicians are currently employed as an RV Certified Technician and have a minimum of five years of experience. Submissions were scored based on each technician’s completed application, years of experience, most recent RVDA/RVIA Certified Technician Exam score and certification expiration date.
