Mitchell 1 says it offers to operate a complete Service Information Skills Station to state trucking organizations that hold annual SuperTech competitions. In 2011, Mitchell 1 will be setting up Service Information Skills Stations for the events being held in the states of Tennessee, California, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas. Mitchell 1 also conducts Service Information Skills testing each year at the Technology and Maintenance Council Annual SuperTech Competition held in September.
“Each year we increase the number of state competitions we support as more states develop their own SuperTech events” says Dave Costantino, director of heavy-duty market development for Mitchell 1. “As additional states organize these competitions, Mitchell 1 will be happy to support them as well. They simply need to contact us as they start the planning process.”
The Service Information Skills stations test competitors on their abilities to use online repair information to diagnose and fix maintenance problems they are likely to encounter in their jobs. For 2011 State SuperTech competitions, Mitchell 1 will test competitors using their Tractor-Trailer.net program that compiles in one place all the maintenance information necessary to fix virtually any heavy truck produced after 1990.
Mitchell 1 says its programs increasingly are being included as part of truck technician vocational school curriculums to train technicians how to use the most updated tools available when they graduate. Mitchell 1 says its Tractor-Trailer.net, Medium-Truck.net and Repair-Connect.net together have all the information required to diagnose and repair all makes of Class 4 -8 vehicles, including trailers.
