Finalist will advance to the finals help in Indianapolis on July 21st with the winner advancing to the Super Tech finals in Orlando Florida, September 16 -21, 2017.
How the Top Tech Program Works
Eligible participants for the Dickinson Top Tech award are selected from more than 400 technicians based on criteria including strength of on-the-job technical knowledge, diagnostic skill, quality workmanship and outstanding customer service performance. These technicians participate in training and sub-region qualifying events before advancing to the next round.
During these regional competitions in participants must make it through very intense rounds of written assessments and hands-on challenges. Ten finalists will be selected to advance and have a shot at the title of Dickinson’s Top Tech during the final part of the competition held during July in Indianapolis.
