Hudson, Mass. — NERVDA (the New England RV Dealers Association) and Lippert Components (LCI) are teaming up to bring regional training to their dealers. Training on Schwintek in-wall slideouts, standard slideouts, leveling and stabilization, awnings and electronics will be conducted by the LCI training staff.
Flagg RV, in Uxbridge, Mass., will host the training Dec. 10 and Campers Inn in Merrimack, N.H., will host the training Dec. 11.
“This is the first in a series of regional training sessions that we will bring to our dealers. We worked with Holly Nater at LCI to set up the program and our dealers are ecstatic with the opportunity to train many technicians over the course of the two days,” said Brian Sullivan, with Campers Inn and president of NERVDA.
Steve Flagg, with Flagg RV and treasurer of NERVDA, noted, “We are rebuilding the association and wanted to show real value to the dealers who are already members of NERVDA, and to show the other dealers that we have a viable organization that can save them money and provide tangible benefits. For this first training session, we are not charging any dealership to send technicians. NERVDA dealers do get preferential registration for one week to enroll their technicians. We have 30 slots in Uxbridge and 50 slots in Merrimack. If NERVDA dealers do not fill all slots, any dealer in New England will be able to enroll their technicians at no charge.”
Registration for the training program is being facilitated by LCI and the deadline to register is Dec. 4.
“NERVDA has been a pleasure to work with in setting up the regional training program. We met Bob Zagami, executive director, during his Elkhart Open House visit to the area and he asked if we would consider doing training for their dealers in New England,” said Holly Nater, director of dealer relations and publications at LCI. “We had all the details worked out in less than two weeks and we are ready to go. This can serve as a model for other state dealer associations to help reduce their training costs and train more technicians – it’s a win-win for everybody associated with this program.”
