The next RV technician distance learning class at Northampton Community College, in partnership with the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association (PRVCA), is set to start Aug. 22.
According to a press release, the RV ranges and cooktops class will run from Aug. 22 through Sept. 18. Tuition for the class is $125.
The course will provide a thorough understanding of ranges and cooktops for technicians new to the industry as well as experienced technicians. During this course the RV range will be broken down into its two main components, the stove and oven. Thermostat operation as well as flame structure is analyzed and studied. As with all LP appliances, safety precautions will continually be emphasized.
The importance of air to fuel ratios, applicable to all LP appliances, will be identified and exemplified during this course. Students can also earn credit hours toward RVIA/RVDA recertification.
PRVCA is running a special offer for all employees of PRVCA members for the 2011-2012 semesters. Upon successful completion of an NCC distance learning course, students will receive a 50% reimbursement on tuition. For more information on the special offer, call the PRVCA office at 888-303-2887. PRVCA said it’s also a good time for nonmembers to join and take advantage of the savings on technician training.
