The Main Event For Professional Commercial Vehicle Technicians

The annual TMCSuperTech is an industry-wide competition for technicians to showcase their competences and skills


EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

Held in conjunction with each TMCSuperTech is the PTDC Technician Training Fair. This event consists of a series of educational sessions created to help commercial vehicle technicians, shop supervisors and fleet managers stay current on the latest technologies and techniques related to vehicle service and maintenance.

The sessions for this year’s Technician Training Fair are: Modern HVAC Control System Diagnostics, Fifth Wheel Systems, Understanding Loss of Tension in the Accessory Belt Drive System, Environmental Awareness and Safety Procedures, Repair Order Process Guidelines and Advanced Multimeter Techniques. (See article elsewhere this issue.)

TMCSuperTech competitors who attend any of these training sessions are awarded bonus points. Often, as close as the competition is, these bonus points can make a big difference in how a competitor finishes, says Braswell.

The PDTC training qualifies for continuing education credit units accepted by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF).

An independent, non-profit organization, NATEF evaluates technician training programs against standards developed by the automotive industry and recommends qualifying programs for certification (accreditation) by ASE.
