Recreation Vehicle Service Technician Designated as Trade

Released on December 2, 2015

The Recreation Vehicle Service Technician (RVST) is now a designated, apprenticeable trade in Saskatchewan, according to the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC).

Recreation Vehicle Service Technicians inspect, diagnose, service, repair, replace and overhaul all systems and components on recreation vehicles.  This includes exterior and interior components, electrical, plumbing, and propane gas components; appliances, structural frames and towing systems on motor homes, travel trailers, van conversions and licensed towable vehicles.

To become an apprentice, a person must have the educational qualifications, skills and aptitude to complete the apprenticeship program successfully, such as a complete Grade 10 transcript, with no modified classes or General Math.  As with all trades, a Grade 12 education is recommended.

There are three levels of technical training, each consisting of eight weeks.  Each apprenticeship year in the trade requires a total of 1,600 hours of training that includes on the job training and technical training.

Tradespersons currently working in the trade will be eligible to write the journeyperson exam as a trades qualifier.  Trades qualifiers are those who challenge the exam based on work experience, without completing an apprenticeship.

In this trade, a trade qualifier must work 8,000 hours to challenge the exam.  A journeyperson is not necessarily required to supervise an apprentice.  The SATCC can determine if there is a Senior Qualified Tradesperson with a significant amount of knowledge and workplace experience in the trade to supervise an apprentice.
