The ATA Technology & Maintenance Council holds a National Technician Skills Competition (“Supertech”) each year to recognize the skills of diesel truck technicians around the country. This event is supported by those states that have launched their own competitions. Although Pennsylvania does not currently have a competition, Maryland does. PMTA has worked out an arrangement whereby any Pennsylvania based technicians can compete in Maryland’s competition. If at least 5 techs from Pennsylvania compete, the winner will be recognized as the Pennsylvania champion and eligible to compete at the national Supertech event.
What is Supertech Maryland? A hands-on contest where technicians gather to test their abilities against their peers. It showcases the knowledge, training and skill needed by today’s maintenance professionals.
What skills are tested? The event begins with a written test based on TMC Recommended Practices and/or Manufacturers’ Practices. Contestants then proceed to hands-on skill stations, where they have 20 minutes to complete each station. Stations include:
When & where? Saturday, June 22, 2019, Center for Applied Technology – North, Severn, MD; 7:00 a.m.
Who can participate? Any truck technician in Maryland or an adjacent state without its own competition.
What can you win? Winners receive over $5,000 in cash and prizes such as tablets, trophies, a trip to the national TMC competition and more. All contestants receive lunch, an event t-shirt, and a goody bag.
