RV technician training

Are you seeking an alternative to higher education, interested in gaining experience in the skilled trades, or seeking a career change? Becoming an RV service technician could be your next move. This unique career stands out as a great option for those considering the skilled trades, especially with the training opportunities provided by the RV Technical Institute’s gold standard curriculum. 

What makes the RV technician career path so advantageous? We’re glad you asked!

  1. Jumpstarts your career in a high-demand trade. RV technicians are one of the fastest-growing careers in the United States. While RVs have exploded in popularity over the last few years, the RV industry is still in need of more trained RV technicians to perform regular maintenance and make timely repairs for RVers looking to explore the great outdoors. 

  2. Presents an alternative to a four-year college degree. The skilled trades, including the RV technician career path, are a great option for those who are interested in rewarding careers that don’t require a traditional four-year degree. This means that those who enter the skilled trades can obtain hands-on experience in their desired field much sooner while avoiding the financial burdens of student debt. 

  3. Encourages technicians to create their ideal work environments. The RV technician career path is unique in that it offers techs the ability to choose how they use their skills. Some technicians repair RVs in a dealership while others prefer go out on the road as an independent mobile technician. There are benefits to both options: dealerships offer a more structured, scheduled workday routine with the support of other staff while mobile technicians have the autonomy to seek out their preferred service jobs at campgrounds and RV parks of their choosing. 

  4. RV technician training is affordable. The RV Technical Institute makes it easy (and affordable) to launch your technician career.
