Skilled and Technical
The competition is consistent with the power equipment technology standards for multi-category accreditation task list outlined in Sections 3 thru 7, published by the Equipment & Engine Training Council (EETC). Competitors perform tasks representative of those encountered in a dealership's service department. As the competitors rotate through the various stations, they are judged and scored on technical and oral skills. Competitors must demonstrate excellent customer service skills, safe work practices, cleanliness, organization, accuracy, speed, and completion of assigned tasks. The hands-on stations include many aspects of two-stroke, four-stroke, compact diesel engines, and battery-powered equipment and their associated mechanical, hydraulic, and electrical systems.
