A free seminar for RV manufacturers and suppliers on how to present training for their products on the RV Service Training Council’s (RVSTC) Distance Learning Network has been scheduled during the 42nd Annual RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky.
“We’ve talked to people who have had some interest in providing training on the network, but are unsure how to approach it,” said Bruce Hopkins, Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) vice president of standards and education, noting the seminar was for RVIA members only. “This will help them understand what they need to do.”
The seminar, from 3-5:30 p.m. Nov. 30, will be presented by Jim Carr, executive director of the RV Institute at Lake City (Fla.) Community College, which coordinates RVSTC technician certification and advanced courses over the Internet and via satellite for dealer and manufacturer technicians.
RV companies, including Airxcel Inc., Wichita, Kan., Fleetwood Enterprises Inc., Riverside, Calif., Onan Corp., Minneapolis, and Workhorse Custom Chassis LLC, Highland Park, Ill., are offering classes in 90-minute blocks Tuesday and Thursday afternoons as part of the current 40-week session that began in September.
About 250 dealers and others have signed up for distance training classes during the current semester.
