March 1 was graduation day for 27 students at the National RV Training Academy in Athens, Texas.

The Athens Review reported that RV owners, technicians and future inspectors gathered at the Big Red School House and Community Center Feb. 25 to March 1 for a thorough 40-hour introduction to RV systems.

The session’s students hailed from 13 states and from as far away as Nova Scotia. All ages were represented, from many different walks of life, with a unifying purpose to understand, maintain and prevent RV problems, “so owners can truly enjoy their travel time,” according to a press release.

Week 1 curriculum is designed to give the RV owner knowledge and confidence to maintain and troubleshoot systems in his own RV. Students rave about the class’s contribution to their peace-of-mind and enjoyment of their RV.

Included in the basic systems training is an overview of electrical (AC and DC), refrigeration, propane, air conditioning, water heaters and water pumps. At graduation, the students are able to identify and troubleshoot issues in each of the primary RV systems.
