RVIA’s Education Department has postponed the Trouble Shooter Clinics (TSC) scheduled to take place in early 2009 in Bethlehem, Pa., and Waco, Texas. The TSC slated for March 9-13 in Elkhart, Ind. will continue as planned.
According to RVIA, low pre-registration numbers forced the postponement of the clinics.
“It is unfortunate that we have had to postpone two of the three scheduled Trouble Shooter Clinics,” said Bruce Hopkins, vice president of standards and education. “But the current economic climate is forcing many companies to take cost-cutting measures – it only makes sense for us to offer the sessions later in 2009. The TSC schedule for 2009 will shift to 2010 and the 2010 schedule will shift to 2011.”
RVIA said its staff is continuing to develop the infrastructure necessary to support the distance delivery of some of the TSC classes. This effort will allow members to support the Trouble Shooter Clinic program by providing instructional materials that can be used in an online environment.
Current programs in production include basic electricity, NFPA 1192 for technicians, and a customer service seminar.
