About the Contest
The Technician of the Year Contest was initiated in 1982 by TXTA and the Fleet Maintenance Council (FMC) to recognize the contributions of outstanding mechanics of the heavy vehicle fleet maintenance industry. This contest evaluates the mechanic's knowledge of their trade and ability to utilize that knowledge on basic mechanical problems.
