Specialty Technician Training
For technicians that have completed the Level 1 and Level 2 trainings, Level 3 training offers supplier training on speciﬁc types of components. Level 3 training leads to increased skill sets where technicians can perform advanced diagnostics, troubleshooting, and repairs on those systems and components.
There are 5 areas of specialty training technicians can pursue:
- Electrical Specialist: Demonstrates skill and expertise in converter, inverter, transfer switches, management systems, batteries including lithium-ion, surge protection and solar
- Chassis Specialist: Demonstrates skill and expertise in stabilization, leveling, electric steps, braking system (hydraulic and electric) and vehicle weights
- Electronics Specialist: Demonstrates skill and expertise in satellite systems, multiplexing and control area networks (CAN)

- Slideout Specialist: Demonstrates skill and expertise in cable slide-outs, above floor slide-outs, through frame slide-outs (including screw-type, rack-n-pinion, hydraulic and flush mounted)
To achieve Level 3, technicians must successfully pass Level 1 and 2 written and skill-based (practical) exams as well as attend and pass 24-hours of approved hands-on vendor training within five years covering the minimum topics listed for each specialty. Level 3 status is good for 5 years. Over this period, the technician must acquire 24 hours of continuing education credits (CEUs) of approved hands-on or online trainings. 8 of the 24 hours of CEUs must be directly related to the specialty held. A yearly information and employment verification check-in are needed to stay active.
