GATESVILLE, Texas — Every Monday through Friday, a group of women at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s Woodman Campus in Gatesville spend six hours toward getting certified as RV technicians, according to a report by KRHD in Bryan, Texas.

Student Stephanie Farris says she doesn’t get tired of it.

“It’s the weekend and you get to relax, but I’m just like, ‘Is it Monday? When can I go back to school?’,” Farris said.

Another student, Angela Gilbreth, says she was looking for a way to pass the time and stumbled upon the class.

“It was something that I was looking for that I never even knew I wanted — it’s just filled a lot of void,” Gilbreth said.

Representatives from Ron Hoover RV, the company partnering with Windham School Districts to provide this course, say there is an increasing demand for RV workers.

“We have a serious problem in our industry. We need technicians,” said the Vice President of Consumer Affairs, Mike Anthony.
