RV Generators, the next course offered in the RV Technician Distance Learning Program, begins March 18 and runs through May 5.
According to a press release, the course, which is supported by the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association (PRVCA) and Northampton Community College, provides students a very detailed look into the idiosyncrasies of the voltage and power-producing device. Understanding that mechanical motion, including mechanical adjustments, has a direct electrical result helps students through the nuances of this sometimes difficult-to-understand machine. Generator sizing, installation, troubleshooting, repair and maintenance are all studied.
“The program is designed for someone who wants to go all the way as an RV technician,” Ron Donachie, the program’s instructor states. “If you want to become a certified tech, this is the way to do it.”
The online course requires hands-on assignments and quizzes and allows students to interact with the instructor and other participants. Students can log on 24/7.
“This is more than just watching step-by-step instructions in a training video,” Donachie says. “You get the training needed to become an RV tech.”
Tuition cost for the RV generator course is $325. Employees of PRVCA members will receive a 50% reimbursement on tuition and textbooks upon successful completion of the course. Graduates will receive 48 RV technician recertification credit hours.
