Wilkins RV tech joins elite certification group

FAIRFAX, Va. — The Recreation Vehicle Service Technician Certification Board today announced that Clint Shirley, with Wilkins RV, has successfully qualified as a certified RV technician.

The industry certification lets consumers know that the service technician working on their RV has developed well-rounded RV repair, diagnostic, and component part replacement skills, the release explained.

Each technician must complete the certification career ladder, which involves a comprehensive three-step testing process.

Certification standards were developed by a team of RV industry technical experts under the supervision of educational testing professionals from the Michigan-based National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI).  To retain certification, additional education and training requirements must be met every five years.

“On behalf of the entire RV Industry, we congratulate Clint for his outstanding commitment to customer service and satisfaction,” said Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association President Phil Ingrassia.  “He joins an elite group of technicians across the country who have successfully met the high standards of the RV industry’s career ladder certification program.”

“As a dealership, we take a lot of pride in the professionalism and technical expertise of our RV technicians.  We are very proud of Clint and the commitment he has made to his profession and our customers,” said Brian Wilkins, president of Wilkins RV, Inc., located upstate New York.

Established in 1993, the RV service technician certification program is administered by Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) and Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) under the auspices of the RV Service Technician Governing Board.  The program tests, certifies and recertifies RV service technicians in either a traditional Certification or five specialty certification areas: appliances, body, chassis, electrical systems and plumbing.
