Today I will be speaking with Gilda Mitchell, the director of membership for both the National RV Inspectors Association and the RV Technician Association of America.
Gilda will be discussing the upcoming NRVTA Expo. It is a virtual event hosted by the National RV Training Academy to provide 18 different webinars to help sharpen the skills of RV technicians and inspectors.
By participating in the classes online or watching presentations at a later date, association members can receive 27 continuing education credits. A total of 24 credits are required every year in order to maintain credentials as certified RV inspectors, or as registered and certified RV technicians.
This year’s expo is open to association members at no cost, but non-member technicians and inspectors can register for just $199.
The annual event is a great way to accumulate more than enough continuing education credits to maintain membership credentials.
More importantly, it is an excellent way for inspectors and technicians to keep abreast of changes in the RV industry, or with products and components.
The benefit of attending virtual sessions, as they are recorded between October 3rd and 6,th is that participants can ask questions of presenters as sessions unfold.
After viewing a session, either when it is presented or by watching a recording, participants must complete a short quiz and achieve a score of 100% to receive credit. Fortunately, inspectors and technicians can take the quiz as often as necessary to pass.
There are a wide variety of presentations planned for this year, and people can view the entire scheduled line-up by visiting www.nrvtaexpo.com.
This year’s NRVTA Expo was sponsored by
- Tom Manning & Associates
- Henderson’s Line-Up Brake & RV
- Miller-Farrell Insurance Agency

Today’s episode is sponsored by the National RV Training Academy in Athens, Texas. The academy’s one-week live training or home study course will teach you everything you need to know to fix about 80 percent of the problems people experience with their RVs.
You can also sign up for additional training to become an RV inspector, campground technician or to provide mobile RV service. For more information, visit www.nrvta.com.
That’s all for this week’s show. Next time, I will be interviewing a mobile RV technician and inspector from New Hampshire. I’ll have that interview on the next episode of RV Tech Talk. Thank you for listening!
