The HANDS-ON RV Technician Master Certification Training (RVIA curriculum based) starts Sept. 10 and runs through Nov. 16 in Palmetto, Florida.

Cost for the program is $5,996.

RV Technician RVSA (RV Service Academy) has been training and certifying RV technicians for more than 30 years.

RVSA was established in 1986 as a 10-week RV Technician Master Certification training course. Due to advancements in the RV industry over the past three decades, changes and adjustments in the RV Technician training curriculum have become necessary.

"We take great pride in our continuous commitment to ensure that our students experience a true kinesthetic 60 percent hands-on curriculum, while always staying inline precisely with the RVIA high standards curriculum," instructors say. "Over the course of the 10-week program, our students will receive complete training of the overall RV operating system. We devote larger portions of allotted time to those parts of the operating systems that require greater technical expertise. This will ensure students the most value for the actual time training. In other words, more bang for your buck."

RVSA only certifies technicians who take and pass a hands-on and written course, as well as pass a comprehensive final exam.
