FAIRFAX, Va. — A new Internet platform and updated curriculum to prepare RV technicians for industry certification and recertification is now available, thanks to the joint efforts of the RV Industry Association and the Mike Molino RV Learning Center, the RV Dealers Association announced today.
The new RV Technician Certification Prep Program features updated online materials and test preparation resources that reflect the changing needs of the RV industry, which relies on professionally trained and certified technicians to maintain the latest RVs on the road today, a press release noted.
The online RV Tech Cert Prep program allows every technician access to individual self-study training and certification preparation for all sections of the RVDA-RVIA RV Certified RV Technician Career Ladder.
The new platform is designed to track, train, and prepare RV technicians at all levels to be able to pass a certification exam or to prepare to be recertified. All content and testing is online and there is no need for other program materials.
“RVIA and RVDA have worked together to develop this new training site for the benefit of all service technicians, dealerships, manufacturers, and suppliers,” said Bruce Hopkins, RVIA vice president of standards and education. “This new platform really enhances the accessibility and convenience for techs readying themselves for certification which is vitally important in today’s RV market where there never seems to be any down time. As we are all aware, a well-functioning technician training effort is a key element in the overall health of the RV industry.”
“Certified technicians are in great demand today and this program is designed to help meet that growing need,” said RVDA President Phil Ingrassia. “Our industry is on the rebound and this improved program will help technicians successfully navigate the path to certification.”
The goal of the RVDA-RVIA technician certification program is to identify professionals who have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to satisfy established, respected standards on RV diagnostic and repair procedures. Technicians must pass a rigorous testing process designed to measure technical competency and recognize those who meet or exceed industry standards.
