This week, the RV Technical Institute announced its partnership with Jones Technical Institute inJacksonville, Fla. While RVTI has dozens of partnerships with organizations across the country, this is RVTI’s first-ever partnership with a trade school.
“As a well-respected trade school, J-Tech is an ideal partner for RVTI,” said Curt Hemmeler, RVTI executive director. “Their state-of-the-art facility and excellent reputation combined with RVTI’s gold standard curriculum will result in many more trained RV technicians entering the industry.”
As RVTI’s newest Authorized Learning Partner, J-Tech now has access to RVTI’s curriculum for its Marine & RV Technology Program which will prepare J-Tech students for a career in the RV industry. While RV sales are increasing, the number of proficient, well-trained RV technicians is steady or declining. With this partnership, RVTI and J-Tech are working together to address the RV industry’s shortage of experienced technicians.
“J-Tech is delighted to partner alongside RVTI and is eager to begin implementing RVTI’s curriculum into our Marine & RV Technology Program. Together, we are developing future technicians that will work to keep RVs on America’s roads for years to come,” said Gregory Jones, president of Jones Technical Institute.
