Three teams will be selected in total, one from each of HVIA’s regions to compete at the 2019 HVIA National Apprentice Challenge, to be staged live at the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show.
Two of the three regional teams will compete daily, working simultaneously, on identical trucks, generously supplied by Iveco Trucks Australia, to identify and rectify a series of programmed faults as the clock ticks.
The winning team is the first successfully to identify and repair all the faults, or the team that rectifies the most faults within the allowed time frame.
For visitors the show the competition is quite a dynamic spectacle, with commentary explaining the apprentices’ moves and strategy, as their approach to addressing the challenge unfolds.
Things can get tense as the teams watch their available time evaporate.
