Dealerships are always looking for trained individuals that have the knowledge to instruct new customers on how the various systems in their rig work.

This course is GREAT for the individual who is going into the Workamping experience and is looking for a way to supplement their income while they live the carefree life on the road. In today’s RV market, we are seeing a basic 2 to 4 hour show out paying $40 to $80 and depending on the complexity of the bigger rigs, the pay can go up to $150 to $250 for a 4 to 6 hour session.

You provide them with an in-depth walk through with notes and check sheets so when they are on their own they will remember where things are and how they work.
