Mitchell 1, a Snap-on company, gave a full one-year subscription to Repair-Connect.net to the grand champion of the TMCSuperTech 2011 – a national technician skills competition, to two-time champion Jeffrey Schlecht from the Omaha Truck Center, Norfolk, NE.
The competition recognizes and promotes commercial vehicle technicians on an industry-wide level.
Repair-Connect.net, an intelligent web-based diagnostic program, is Mitchell 1’s newest on-line service information program.
With his new subscription to Repair-Connect.net, Schlecht will merely need to enter a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) for any brand of truck into the main page of the program to immediately gain access to the proper information required to fix the problem identified by the code, say Mitchell 1 officials.
Mitchell 1 has been a sponsor of the TMCSuperTech since its inception seven years ago, and each year Mitchell 1 has run the Service Information skills station which tests competitors on their ability to use computers and web-based programs to diagnose and fix vehicles properly.
In addition to its involvement at the national level, Mitchell 1 also supports and participates in many state technician skills competitions.
Mitchell 1 on-line vehicle repair products, including Tractor-Trailer.net, Medium-Truck.net and Repair-Connect.net, have all the vital procedural service information in one place to maximize shop productivity, say officials. They include thousands of detailed color wiring diagrams to help solve complex electrical problems as well as full-color photos that provide a real-world view of many vehicle components and assemblies.
