From 1993 to today, the National Automotive Technology Competition has brought together the nationís best high school automotive technicians to test their skills, measure their knowledge, and challenge their ability to diagnose and repair vehicles. The National Automotive Technology Competition is designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in todayís technologically advanced automotive industry.
The National Automotive Technology Competition was originally conceived by the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association to help address the shortage of qualified automotive technicians and push the curriculum of vocational education to a more rigorous standard, ensuring automotive students master the skills they need to succeed as lifelong learners, workers, and citizens.
This event and the changes to the industry that it has helped foster could not be achieved without the support of an industry-wide collaboration that brings together nearly every major automobile manufacturer, retail automobile dealers, dealer associations, educational institutions, and numerous government agencies. These truly great organizations have literally changed thousands of young lives.
