Purpose

In June 2018, the RV Industry Association Board of Directors took a leadership role in addressing RV owner satisfaction by approving a comprehensive strategic plan and multi-million-dollar investment that created a supporting foundation, the RV Technical Institute (RVTI), tasked with reducing repair event cycle times for consumers seeking to maintain their RVs, and working to increase the number of trained RV technicians. The institute, launched in 2019 in Elkhart, IN, is focused on increasing the number of trained technicians through the creation of a world-class training curriculum that will be standardized nationally by utilizing industry subject matter experts in conjunction with professional curriculum developers and technical writers.

Current Education Events

TnT Supplier Component Training and Registered Technician training will continue to be offered during the build-out of the institute’s new curriculum and credentialing program. Dealers and technicians should continue to look at the training section of the RV Industry Association website for upcoming TnT trainings by clicking here. Credit for training completed at any time in the past or during the current transition period will be mapped to a future RV technician credential or training credit.
