In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the RV Technical Institute will begin offering the Level 1 training course online later this month. The online, interactive classes will be virtually taught by RV Technical Institute trainers through Zoom. The rollout of this new curriculum delivery system will allow RV technicians to continue to be trained and receive the only industry-wide certification while following appropriate social distancing guidelines.
The first online Level 1 class starts on April 20 and will be delivered in four-hour increments on a daily basis from 10 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m-3 p.m. EDT, Monday through Friday. As the RV Technical Institute moves to this virtual setting, hands-on training remains a cornerstone of the brand-new curriculum. The hands-on labs will be demonstrated during the online instruction class and students will then perform these labs on their own.
Textbook support materials will be distributed electronically through RVTI’s learning management system. RV technicians interested in participating in the online class will be able to sign up via the LMS when it launches Monday, April 13.
Class participants will be given two weeks to complete their certification testing (included in the $275 course fee) via an on-line system using Proctor U. Those that pass the test will then become RV Technical Institute Level 1 certified.
Additionally, the online test will be available to experienced RV technicians who choose to test after reviewing the Level 1 curriculum without participating in additional training. This will allow experienced RV technicians to use their existing knowledge and skills to obtain the Level 1 certification.
