The RV Preventive Maintenance Course, hosted by Northampton Community College in conjunction with the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association (PRVCA), begins June 22 and runs through July 19.

The course examines the varying technical aspects from each of the previous courses. Preventive maintenance of every major component in every major system on the RV is the focus. To successfully complete this course, the student must have a thorough understanding of each system on the RV.

Tuition cost for the RV Preventive Maintenance Course is $209 per student. Employees of PRVCA members will receive a 50% reimbursement on tuition and textbooks upon successful completion of the course.

The program is approved by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) and qualifies for 28 recertification hours. Students receive a certificate of completion upon successful completion of the course. The program is designed for RV maintenance and sales personnel, service managers, factory field technicians, service representatives, inspectors and those seeking a new, hands-on career in a growing industry.

Those who complete the entire program will earn a specialized diploma from Northampton Community College. Students not wishing to obtain the specialized diploma may also enroll in individual courses as desired. Those who earn the specialized diploma will be prepared to test for the RV Service Technician or a Master Certified RV Service Technician with the RVDA/RVIA RV Service Technicians Certification Board.
