The National RV Training Academy will host an educational event and supplier showcase in Athens, Texas, in April to train RV technicians and inspectors.

A total of 18 educational and social events already are planned starting April 7 with a three-day class conducted by Spartan Chassis and concluding April 24 with dinner at a local restaurant.

Techs and inspectors can take advantage of all training activities; however, the core event is a 2.5-day expo from April 17-19 at the Big Red Schoolhouse.

The expo will feature specialized presentations from certified RV technicians and inspectors, plus classes taught by several industry supplier firms, including Aqua-Hot, Dometic, Lippert Components, MORryde, Truma and RV Armor.

“This event helps RV technicians and inspectors by providing the continuing education they need to maintain certification,” said Terry Cooper, NRVTA president. “It is an excellent opportunity for people to complete quite a few classes in a compact period of time.

“In addition to several hours of training, we will release details of a new mobile tech certification program during the event to our attendees,” he added. “If someone is considering a new business as a mobile tech or inspector, now is the time to jump into this industry.”

The cost to attend the expo is $299 for RV technicians and inspectors. A spouse or guest can be added for $99.

The price includes dinner on April 17, plus access to technical and business development classes designed to help grow and manage mobile service and inspection businesses. Topics include new developments with batteries, RV refrigeration and fluid analysis as well as marketing and search engine optimization.

Vendors, like SnapPad, will have displays at the expo, and others are expected to participate as well.

Participants and guests can also sign up for daytime and evening excursions to local attractions at an additional cost.
