2019 Honda World Skills Contest and Midland Honda

2019 Honda World Skills Contest and Midland Honda

Midland Honda service technicians are a big part of the foundation of the dealership and for the most part these talented people work in the back without much notice or praise, until recently.  Tech Talk Thursdays has opened the garage door to spotlight important vehicle issues that are resolved by service staff with solutions based on their superior training. What you don’t see is the dedication to improve their diagnostic and repair abilities through constant training over time. You may start as an apprentice, like Brandon Westerlaken in 2015, and then five years later you become a licensed technician. Midland Honda’s Gold certified techs, Matt Elmer and Dakota Plante have decades of combined experience maintaining and repairing Honda vehicles. I’m not certain what amount of training you need to achieve the Platinum designation but its got to be huge. Both Nick Chute and Peter Reginella have this level to offer the Midland Honda service team and Peter was recently awarded the Top Technician in Ontario. Midland Honda has developed a great team of service technicians to support their customers’ needs. Honda intends to elevate team moral and expertise even higher. Their motto is ‘Be the engine of Honda’ and to further this dream in 2019 Honda inaugurated the first Honda World Skills Contest held in Japan. The Honda World Skills Contest has twenty-six finalists, from a pool of seventy-five thousand techs, chosen from seventeen countries tested their knowledge and problem-solving abilities in service bay challenges that were on the clock.

 

The two Canadian participants, from Honda and Acura dealerships, were chosen as Canada’s best techs at the Honda Headquarters in Markham.  Here, during mid-May, techs were asked to identify four complex faults, mainly electrical, in a two hour, eight service bay competition. One of the goals of this new competition in Canada is to showcase the opportunities that exist in the field of automotive service. Competitors also have the opportunity to meet others who have similar goals in professional improvement.  These friendly competitions keep Honda moving forward by facilitating self-improvement through examples of excellence. Midland Honda has some of the best Honda technicians working on your vehicles every day. This fact will always lead to your satisfaction!

 

Until next time
