The next RV Technician Distance Learning Course, Introduction to RV Services, will begin on Jan. 16 and run through Feb. 19, according to a press release.

The course, held online through Northampton Community College in partnership with the Pennsylvania Recreation Vehicle and Camping Association (PRVCA), delves into the workings of a typical RV dealership service center and exposes the student to the skills necessary to function within a dealership environment.

RV construction techniques are discussed as well as the proper care and use of hand tools. Safety, work habits and the introduction to RV Codes and Standards are also presented. A deeper look into the various job classifications and pay structures at the RV dealership gives the student a well-rounded view of what is possible after training and certification.

PRVCA member employees will receive 50% reimbursement on tuition after successful completion of a course. Upon completion, students will receive a certificate that can be faxed to the PRVCA office at 717-303-0297 and a check for 50% of the courses tuition will be mailed to the student. The courses can also go towards recertification credits. For more information, call the PRVCA office at 888-303-2887.
