The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) has scheduled four Trouble Shooter Clinics from November through March as continuing education for RV service technicians.
Through 40 hours of intensive classroom training and hands-on experience, the clinics help technicians sharpen their skills to diagnose and repair most major RV component parts and fix them correctly on the first attempt.
Industry experts provide technicians with a comprehensive review of the most important RV systems. Covered are basic electricity, LP gas systems, furnaces, ranges/cooktops, refrigerators, plumbing fixtures, air conditioning systems, generators, water heaters, toilets, RV weight safety, electronic brake controls, automatic detectors, steps and levelers.
Clinics have been scheduled as follows:
• Nov. 17-21, Century Center, South Bend, Ind.
• Jan. 5-9, Ramada Inn, Columbia, Mo.
• Feb. 9-13, Northampton Community College, Bethlehem, Pa.
• March 15-19, Ivy Tech State College, Elkhart, Ind.
The registration fee for each clinic is $399 per registrant. Coffee breaks and daily luncheon (excluding Fridays) are provided and each registered technician receives a detailed trouble shooter’s manual to keep for future reference.
A certificate and trouble shooter’s cap are awarded upon completion of the clinic.
