Want to be recognized for your certification? Have your dealership GM sign the authorization form and submit to RVDA. The Society of Certified RV Professionals promotes and recognizes certified professionals and facilitates their professional development and training. Quarterly, we send dealers a news release, which only lists the individual's name and certification status (certified technician or master certified technician) company name is not included. Only certified level designations are eligible for the recognition program.
The Society is open to all credentialed RV professionals, and those that support them—from the dealer owner—to Young Executives— to those offering financial and other support. All RVDA/RVIA certified technicians and all RV Learning Center credentialed fixed operations certified personnel including those that aspire to become certified are members at no charge.

Meeting on May 24, the board voted unanimously for the motion to end Specialty Certifications, often referred to as the right side of the career ladder. This action was taken due to low participation in the Specialty Certifications since they began in 2012. The Specialties were plumbing, appliances, electrical systems, chassis and body. Traditional RV technician certification remains unchanged. more
