For over thirty years the RV Service Academy has been providing high quality RV technician training with a curriculum based on resources from the RV Industry Association and RV Dealers Association’s training programs. By becoming an official RV Technical Institute Authorized Learning Partner, the RV Service Academy now has full access to the only industry recognized training curriculum and certification. Students will be able to become RV Technical Institute certified technicians at the end of the course.
“Being partners with the RV Technical Institute allows us to be part of something bigger,” said RV Service Academy Owner Mike Tibbs. “Through this partnership we will be able to take our program that has worked for over thirty years at our single location and grow to a multilocation and multistate organization.”
For the Institute, partnering with the RV Service Academy means more opportunity for veterans to receive the certification. As a Veterans Administration-approved school, training costs at the RV Service Academy could be covered for some veterans who qualify through the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
The RV Service Academy also focuses on training people new to the RV industry. The vast majority of their students are not current RV technicians but rather RV enthusiasts. Many who are looking for new careers either as a service technician at an RV dealership or repair shop or for the opportunity to be their own boss and run their own RV repair shop or mobile repair service.
“Partnering with the RV Service Academy is very exciting,” said RV Technical Institute Executive Director Curt Hemmeler. “They have built a high quality, highly regarded program that reaches audiences that are critical to attracting more people into the RV technician field. Between their work with veterans and RV enthusiasts, the sky’s the limit for where we will be able to go together.”
For over thirty years, the RV Service Academy has built their training program based on a hands-on learning approach. This is the same approach that was critical to the development of the all-new RV Technical Institute training curriculum.
