"SuperTech" is My Middle Name

I wasn’t sure what to expect at the Technology and Maintenance Council’s annual meeting and exposition down in Orlando, but I am so glad I had the opportunity to attend. There were numerous seminars I attended that will help me be better at my job.  Additionally, a lot of my week was spent networking and meeting people who are helping with the first Nebraska SuperTech competition. Once again, I was amazed at the willingness of people to help support our endeavor. Roger Maye of ConMet and Brian Thompson of Delco Remy both approached me to say they would be more than happy to help us out.  During the expo, the Professional Technician Development Committee booth gave everyone a chance to try some of the SuperTech skills challenges. I am happy to report that I tried the electrical station, the service information station and the wheel end station. I learned how to use a Fluke Meter for the first time in my life and even did a torque to 300 ft. lbs. I poured over the service information station, and only asked for help once or twice!  Now that I’m back in Nebraska, the reality of the fact that the competition is only five months away is starting to hit me. I am also working hard on my company’s own internal competition. I joked in Florida that my middle name is “SuperTech,” but I’m beginning to think it actually is. I am thankful I had the opportunity to attend the TMC conference.
