RV owners, technicians and future inspectors gathered at the Big Red School House and Community Center Feb. 25 to March 1 for a 40-hour introduction to RV systems.

This session’s students hailed from 13 states and from as far away as Nova Scotia. There were single women, single men, couples, and families. All ages were represented, from many different walks of life.

Week 1 curriculum is designed to give RV owners knowledge and confidence to maintain and troubleshoot systems in their own RV.

Included in the basic systems training is an overview of electrical (AC and DC), refrigeration, propane, air conditioning, water heaters and water pumps. At graduation, the students are able to identify and troubleshoot issues in each of the primary RV systems.

Per CEO Terry Cooper, Week 1 also provides a vital foundation for those who choose the more in-depth curriculum for becoming a professional RV inspector or professional RV technician.

Week 1 graduates have the option of pursuing advance courses specialized in RV inspections or in RV technician work.

NRVIA also provides on-going support, continuing education, access to professional insurance and networking for the developing inspector and technician.

By graduation, more than half the students decided to take the next step to become either NRVIA Level 2 RV inspectors or mobile RV techs.

There are six Week 1 sessions still open in 2019, including :

May 27-31
July 15-19
Sept. 2-6
Sept. 23-27
Oct. 21-25
Dec. 9-13
