The RV Technical Institute is accepting nominations for the RV Tech Challenge to be held during RVX: The RV Experience, March 13 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.


To apply, techs must certify that they are currently employed as an RV Certified Technician and have a minimum of five years of experience. Submissions will be scored based on each technician’s completed application, years of experience, most recent RVDA/RVIA Certified Technician Exam score, and certification expiration date. The seven applicants with the highest scores will be chosen as the final contestants. In addition to the cash prize, the winner will receive marketing materials to display at their dealership that recognizes their achievements, as well as promotional content for their website and social media platforms.


Nominations are open through November 30. The final competitors will be notified no later than January 7, 2019.


According to RVIDA, The Top Tech Challenge highlights the industry-wide need for skilled labor, and emphasizes the need to work together to bring in more qualified technicians to the industry. These technicians will aid the industry in improving the overall customer RV experience. The winner receives a $10,000 cash prize to be shared by the winner and their dealership, and the title of “Top Tech Champion!”


Last year’s champion Brandon Galbreath will be on hand to defend his title.
