As you may have seen from our social media channels and news page, last week saw the conclusion of our industry leading Elite Technician Challenge. A competition that rewards the talents of our fantastic Technician colleagues across the Group, the practical final saw the best of the best go head-to-head in an exam that tested their diagnostic abilities.
Held at Stoneleigh Park and sponsored by Shell Helix Oils, Pirelli Tyres and CitNOW, the practical final was a tense day that saw our finalists go head-to-head for the last time as they tried to get their hands on the two incredible prizes on offer - the title 'Elite Technician' and a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Detroit Grand Prix, hosted by Penske.
First up was the main part of the practical final - diagnosing faults on a real life vehicle. Lasting just 1 hour and 15 minutes it tasked our finalists with finding a host of faults on a real life car from their brand. In order to ensure the practical test is fair, each brand had provided three identical cars for their respective Technicians.
Once time expired on the main practical exam, each of the finalists then had just 15 minutes to create a CitNOW walk-around video that outlined all of the faults they had found on their car. This is something that each of our Technicians will have performed in their day-to-day role and, in the event of a tie-break situation (like last year), could have been the defining asset that helped crown our winners.
