Velociti Inc. is proud to be the exclusive event sponsor of the National Student Technician Competition, TMCFutureTech 2016. The event, designed to promote career opportunities as heavy-truck technicians, will be held in conjunction with the National Technician Skills Competition —TMCSuperTech 2016 — held by American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council during its Fall Meeting, Sept. 18-22, in Raleigh, NC.
“While the ongoing driver shortage gets a lot of well-deserved attention, the shortage of technicians at fleets is often overlooked,” said Deryk Powell, president of Velociti. “The shortage is further compounded by the need for staff that is trained to maintain and repair more complex vehicle systems. As part of the trucking industry, and for our business as well, it’s important that we do everything possible to help fleets address this challenge.”
TMCFutureTech 2016 consists of a set of skill stations for technician students that takes place at the same time as TMCSuperTech 2016 for professional technicians.
Velociti will present a starter toolbox to the top three student winners at the TMCSuperTech 2016 Awards Luncheon and present electric training boards to the schools of the top three winners during the TMC Annual Meeting in March.
