Over the past two years, interest in comprehensive RV Refrigerator Repair has spread around the world. Not only are the RV owners searching for qualified technicians who provide this service, but technicians from fields outside the RV industry are obtaining this training so they can be that unique Service Center who provides what the RV owners are looking for.
Ford's RV Refrigeration Training Center is celebrating its second year anniversary as a Kentucky State Licensed School that has been educating others around the world on properly diagnosing and comprehensive repair on the RV refrigerator and cooling unit.
In its July class, the employees will be educating another technician from the UK who is from the Solar (off the grid) industry. In addition, FRVRTC is in the application process of becoming a recommended school through the GI Bill.
To accommodate the requests coming from the veterans who are ready to use their GI Bill benefits, FRVRTC has restructured their curriculum to consist of a Level 1 Certification, a Level 2 Certification and a Master Certification. These classes also are available to the general public.
