RV Training Academy Earns License, Certification
Texas RV School Continues State and Industry Approval
“In December, the Texas RV Association (TRVA) formally endorsed the training services provided at the academy. Now, with the TWC certification, it confirms we are on the right track to accomplish great things for the RV industry,” said Terry Cooper, NRVTA President.
The certification makes NRVTA eligible to receive funding to build careers for RV technician and inspector positions. During the certification process, NRVTA developed additional curriculum, including an entry-level training class providing insight into RV systems and how to diagnose problems with a variety of equipment.
Other developments include creating an official course catalog and titling courses with “college-like” numbering for all classes (200-level and 300-level for initial and advanced training). Furthermore, two organizations were created by NRVTA, which will further certify graduates with additional credentials.
“Compared to many four-year degrees, where students have to go into debt by hundreds of thousands of dollars only to get jobs paying less than $50,000 annually, the type of technical training we provide at NRVTA offers an exceptional return on our students’ investments of money and time,” Cooper said.
NRVTA staff includes 10 instructors and 14 support staff. They are expected to train more than 1,000 students in 2021. Since 2017, the academy has provided training to staff from more than 90 RV-related companies throughout North America.
A celebratory event for NRVATA will take place in May, with details to be released soon.
