The team of service technicians from Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc. (ICTA) placed second in the High Technology Diesel division of the 12th Annual Isuzu One Grand Prix World Technician Competition. The competition was conducted at Isuzu Motors Limited’s training center in Fujisawa, Japan.
Eighty-one technicians from Isuzu distributors in 27 countries competed in this year’s event, a multi-stage competition requiring outstanding performance on written examinations and in hands-on tests of vehicle diagnosis and repair skills. Eight nations were assigned to the High Technology Diesel category. ICTA team consisted of Trevor Shrader of CIT Isuzu Truck in Loves Park, Illinois, and Tim McCarty of Rush Isuzu Truck in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Trevor and Tim represented ICTA beautifully,” said Shaun Skinner, president of ICTA. “Thanks to them, this was our best finish ever in the World Technician Competition. That speaks well of their diagnostic and repair skills, and it’s also a testament to the investment we’ve made in our training centers in both Pennsylvania and California.”
