The Society of Certified RV Professionals recently recognized 68 individuals from 36 participating dealerships and one manufacturer who earned certification from December 2018 to February 2019 through the Mike Molino RV Learning Center or the RV Dealers Association/RV Industry Association RV Service Technician Certification Program.
Dealership participation in the program allows the society to publicize individuals’ certification achievements on the national level. Those participating in the recognition program are a subgroup of the 87 individuals from 48 dealerships who recertified or earned certification during that time frame.
Forty-three technicians were recertified at either the certified or master certified technician level. Sixteen of those recertified are from dealerships participating in the recognition program. They are: Certified Master Technicians Grant Pratt, James Uden, David Berger, Thomas Meixner, Gary Klenke, John Birch and Certified Technicians Kevin Sutton, Jonas Gingerich, Shane Wagner, Scott McCannon, Curtis Greene, Randy Hurd, Cody Hilliker, Gary Kunkel, Michael Cowherd, and Paul Creighton.
Five individuals newly certified as Master Technicians are participating in the recognition program. They are John Emanuel, Steven Graham, Zach King, Corey Miller, and Gregory Bootes.
“On behalf of the entire RV Industry, we congratulate these professionals and their dealerships. These accomplishments are proof of their outstanding commitment to customer service and satisfaction,” said RVDA President Phil Ingrassia. “Not only do they elevate our industry, but on an individual level, each joins an elite group of certified personnel who have successfully met high professional standards.”
The RVDA-RVIA RV Service Technician tests establish the standards of knowledge and performance designed to measure the technical competency of RV service technicians and to recognize those technicians who meet or exceed those standards in RV diagnostic and repair procedures. Standards were developed by a team of RV industry technical experts under the supervision of the Michigan-based National Occupational Competency Testing Institute. Recertification requires additional education and training every five years.
