Phil recently completed a week of training at the National RV Training Academy (NRVTA). The ability to repair our RV when things break is important to him. So when the NRVTA reached out and invited us to attend tech school, we jumped at the chance. Today we will share our experience at NRVTA and the 5 top reasons you should attend RV tech school.
5 Reasons to Attend RV Tech School
1. Save Money
When you learn to troubleshoot and repair your RV, you WILL save money. It doesn’t matter if your RV costs $500k for $50k. Things are going to break and break frequently! Learning to troubleshoot and repair your RV can save you a ton of money.
2. Save Time
We have all heard the stories of RVs sitting in repair lots for weeks or even months for a simple repair. Learning to tackle repairs will save you the time and frustration of waiting for the RV repair shop to complete the job and return the RV back to you.
3. Make Money
Are you looking for a way to make money to fund your full time RV life? This may be the perfect fit for you! You can train to become a certified RV tech or a certified RV inspector. With the huge increase in RV sales this year, both of these fields are in high demand.
4. Build Community
While attending the course, you will meet people that will become a part of your community. Life long friends who you can consult about RV repairs or join around a campfire while traveling the country.
5. Help Others
You will gain the knowledge to help your friends and neighbors troubleshoot and repair their RV. You can start your own business or just help out a friend in need. Either way, the RV community needs more people with the knowledge and know-how to lend a hand.
