Support Affordable Education for Our Industry

And promote professionalism through the Society of Certified RV Professionals
We know customer satisfaction with a dealer can be directly tied to a well-educated dealership staff. Through the Mike Molino RV Learning Center, education for the RV Industry elevates both our industry and our dealerships. It gives us the chance to achieve excellence and build prosperous businesses." —Jeff Pastore, Hartville RV Center, Inc., Chairman, Mike Molino RV Learning Center

Why Should You Support the Mike Molino RV Learning Center?

Very simply: a donation to the RV Learning Center is an investment in OUR industry and YOUR business. Everything the RV Learning Center does focuses on one key goal: to educate the RV dealership workforce to promote industry excellence. High standards grow our industry and translate into prosperous dealerships. It's that simple. But it doesn't happen without a great deal of organization, planning and commitment.

Additionally: Your donation to the RV Learning Center puts you at the forefront of transforming our industry; providing dealers and their employees with innovative ways to operate RV dealerships through an array of education resources including publications, distance learning, live workshops, online products, training, and certification programs for RV dealership personnel.

Educated dealership professionals are the key to customer satisfaction. Customer satisfaction expands our industry. Participation in RV industry certification programs was a key recommendation of the Go RVing Coalition’s Committee on Excellence Task Force reports, which studied consumer satisfaction. The RV Learning Center offers five certifications, including service managers, service writers/advisors, parts managers, parts specialists, and warranty administrators.

Your contributions make it possible for the RV Learning Center to partner with the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), and the Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA), to offer RV service technicians the opportunity to prepare for certification through online training. These are key programs that enhance professionalism in our industry and yield better customer satisfaction.
