Keller Marine and RV hosted Lippert Components this week for a two-day re-certification training. The class was held in Keller Marine and RV’s training room and was attended by 55 technicians from all over the East Coast.
The training covered Lippert's Ground Control Leveling System, the Slim Rock Slideout, myRV w/OCTP system, which can control the slideouts from within the RV with an app, the in-wall Slideout leveling system and other company training over the course of the two days.
“It is very inspirational to see dealers so interested in keeping up with their certification,” Keller Marine and RV President Mike Keller says. "Article after article states that service is the one thing that Amazon cannot compete with in comparison to brick-and-mortar stores. Knowledge is power and it is very uplifting to see dealers embracing the training that is being offered to them.”
Keller also held re-certification training at its show in October in conjunction with Dometic, as well as Reese, Tekonsha and Bulldog.
Another re-certification class hosted by PRVCA will be Feb. 22 at Keller Marine and RV for Reese, Tekonsha and Bulldog.
