Welcome to the RV Training Institute at Florida Gateway College, Lake City, Florida.  In partnership with the Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA), and the national RV Dealers Association (RVDA), we are pleased to offer this distance learning training program exclusively for the RV Industry.

We are able to deliver training programs directly to member dealerships and other industry-related sites throughout the U.S. and Canada through Internet Broadband by way of our uplink facility at the University of South Florida in Tampa.  A variety of programming is available for all occupations within the RV Industry, as well as manufacturer and supplier product-specific clinics and workshops.  The program is an in-house, mentor-lead, group-learning training opportunity where costs associated with travel and time out of the shop are eliminated.

The only requirements needed for participation in the RV Distance Learning program is a computer with high-speed internet connection.  You will also need an “out”  video cable connected to your computer and directly to a television making group learning a reality.  Participating dealerships can purchase course textbooks from RVIA at a discounted price.

Each subscription location will have access to all available training for a full curriculum year from August 1st of the current year through July 31st of the following year.

Please review the information contained within this site for details on programming available.  Thank you for your interest and please contact us personally if we can be of further service.
