Podcast 200 focuses on the new RV Training Academy

For this special 200th episode, we will be talking with the new owners of RV Daily Report about their latest project – the construction of the about-to-open National RV Training Academy in Athens, Texas.

Terry and Evada Cooper are joined by Steve and Kathy Jo Anderson to describe their vision for the training center and what they hope to offer to the RV industry and RV owners.

We’ll talk about the various components of the training curriculum and the types of course offerings that will be available for professional technicians and amateur RV owners alike. We’ll look at the training schedule and show how someone can become a certified RV technician in just five intensive weeks of training.

We’ll discuss how students have the opportunity to learn about multiple RV systems used by a variety of RV manufacturers due to the fact that a campground hosting more than 100 RVs is connected to the training center.

Finally, we’ll look at how people can support the center by buying a brick and how dealers, suppliers and manufacturers can make tax-deductible donations of equipment and money.

The concept for the National RV Training Academy is long overdue. There is such an acute shortage of technicians nationwide that the RV industry will come to depend upon this program to churn out trained techs every month.

The center will train technicians for RV dealerships as well as for campgrounds looking to add repair services as a profit center in 2019. Consumers who just want to feel comfortable fixing 80 percent of the problems they encounter with their RV, will find the broad, easy-to-understand training helpful, too.

Even people wanting to launch a business as RV inspectors will find everything they need to provide thorough evaluations of RVs prior to purchase, or for insurance companies, auction sites, lenders and RV sellers.

Classes are filling up for later this year and all of 2019, so reserve a spot today. Trained RV technicians can make a very good living.
