Registered Technician

The registered technician test establishes that the technician is proficient in core knowledge areas such as propane, basic electrical, plumbing, fire & life safety, weight knowledge, and other technical skills as outlined in the RVST Standard/DACUM.  This is the first step in becoming a Certified technician.   Once a technician has achieved Registered technician status they are eligible to move forward and become a Certified Technician.

The test consists of 105 multiple choice questions.  The technician has 95 minutes to complete the test.  The passing score for the Registered Technician test is 76.2% or 80/105 correct answers.  

NOTE: Those currently certified or those with an expired certification are exempt from the Registered Technician test.  All other applicants are required to take the Registered test as the first step of the certification process.
