Let us not underestimate the skills set required to be a good Caravan or Motorhome technician. They will:

  • Work on LPG gas systems but they are not a gas engineer
  • Work on mains electrics but they are not an electrician
  • Work on 12 volt electrics but they are not an auto electrician
  • Work on water systems but they are not a plumber
  • Work on furniture but they are not a cabinet maker
  • Work on exterior body work but they are not a panel beater
  • Work on brakes etc but they are not a motor mechanic

In all of the above disciplines they need to work on the caravan or motorhome to at least the standards of the gas engineer, plumber or electrician etc. The skills set required for caravan or motorhome servicing are extremely diverse. The CSA foundation course will get your technician started correctly on all of the above disciplines with emphasis on customer care, caravan respect and personal safety!

At CSA we are passionate about caravans and motor caravans, servicing and the touring industry.
