As an instructor, I have learned from my students what they would like to be taught and listened to their comments for change, improvement, etc. What I learned as a instructor in my past employment was that they learned how to diagnose, service and replace appliances on shop training aids but most of the students didn't know where they actually went in an RV. So when I started RV Training Center in 2006, I brought in RVs. One of my graduates recently told me that he had a service call on a 1976 RV. Our state of the art training includes newer and older RVs for our hands-on portion of training giving actual experience of working on RVs. Our hands-on training also includes shop training aids as well as RVs and is done after students complete each section of our classroom curriculum (includes PowerPoint presentations and videos). You will also receive two curriculum manuals and a thumb drive of the course). Our RVs are updated as problems are repaired and serviced with a new group of RVs for students to learn on. We strive to provide the best training available in the RV industry and are constantly updating our curriculum. Come join us for an enjoyable learning experience!

RV Training Center, Inc. (RVTC) is the only technical school in the United States to train RV technicians by combining hands on experience with an intensive classroom curriculum* and regular testing to provide some of the mostly highly trained RV technicians in the RV industry. Our mission is to prepare students to receive an RV Technician Certificate, enabling them to begin their own mobile RV repair business, gain employment as an RV technician in a RV dealer corporate environment , or repair and service their own RV's.
Our educational program is the only short term RV repair certification that utilizes onsite RVs and RV parts for the hands-on portion of the curriculum. We believe this not only provides a superior learning opportunity, but also allows the student better retention of the information they gain after they graduate the class and become employed in the RV field. We have a tractor trailer load of shop training aids. As need arises, students may have the opportunity to go on supervised service calls in evenings or weekends. We also offer job assistance for our graduates. RV Training Center has earned the respect of the RV industry, RV dealers and RV owners alike thanks to our comprehensive training program! With over 28 years in the RV industry, we strive to be the best!
Our 10-week course consists of an extensive curriculum held in our classroom (including PowerPoint presentations, videos, manuals*, etc.). The balance is our hands-on training.

You will learn how to proficiently diagnose and repair almost any problem, whether it is a travel trailer, a 40 ft. fifth wheel, a Class A RV or Class B van , or a luxury 45' foot class A diesel coach. How to service generators, refrigerators, heating and cooling systems, plumbing systems, awnings, leveling systems, brakes, cooking appliances, battery chargers, inverter systems, slide out mechanisms, trailer hitches, body damage and repair, L.P. gas systems, electrical systems and more.
