Two of the most frequently asked questions about RVDA-RVIA RV service technician certification are, “When must I recertify?” and “How do I do it?” According to a report in RV Executive Today Online, techs must recertify every five years, and there are two methods for doing so:

1) No-test method – Recertify using training hours. The technician must:

• Prove continuous employment (less than one year off) in the industry since the previous certification date.

• Have proof of continuing education consisting of at least five days (40 hours) of industry sponsored training over the five-year period, with at least three of the five days occurring over the past three years of the certification period. (Possible industry-sponsored training sources are: RVIA Trouble Shooter Clinics, satellite and Internet distance learning courses, the online RV Technician Certification Preparation Course, supplier/distributor schools and/or correspondence courses, NRVTI courses, manufacturer training, or state association training sessions).

• Complete the application and submit with payment.

2) Test method—Recertify by taking the certification test. If a technician can’t meet the continuing education requirement, he or she can pay to retake the certification test. The technician must:

• Pass the test, achieving the appropriate score to retain the previous certification level. A technician who fails the test will lose certification and must restart the certification process.

• Complete the application and submit with payment.
