The first course is the two hour Mini RV Boot Camp. Each participant will receive the Driving Tips booklet, will learn how to do a Pre-Trip inspection, set their mirrors and do the first two of the four basic driving skills.
The second course is the four hour, Behind the Wheel Next Level Boot Camp.. This is for those drivers who have completed the Mini RV Boot Camp or those persons who are not totally comfortable behind the wheel. The Next Level Boot Camp will show the new driver how to use reference points, understand Off Track and Tail Swing, understand lane use, stopping and following distance, defensive driving skills and the three driving challenges. Each person who completes the training will receive a Certificate of Completion. Each Next Level Trainee also receives the RV Basic Training motor home driving manual.
