The RV Liquid Propane Systems Service course, hosted by Northampton Community College in conjunction with the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association (PRVCA), opens Nov. 6 and runs through Dec. 10.
The second of the three major systems found in recreation vehicles, the LP system is dissected in detail. Since propane is flammable, safety precautions are emphasized right from the start and throughout the entire course. Here, the student studies the properties of propane as well as the types of containers used in the RV industry. Proper procedures for purging, storing and using LP, including the importance of regulation are presented and performed on paper as well as during many hands-on assignments. RVIA mandated tests are also perfected.
The online program allows students to gain an in-depth understanding of recreation vehicle maintenance with intensive, competency-based instruction. Students simply log on to access the lecture notes, hands-on assignments, quizzes and chat with the instructor and other students. The program gives students the flexibility to complete the course from the comfort of their home or dealership without having the expense of traveling to a training facility.
The program is approved by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) and the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Associaton (RVDA), and qualifies for recertification hours. Employees of PRVCA members will receive a 50% reimbursement on tuition and textbooks upon successful completion of the course.
