Fleet Maintenance - 35

TRAINING
next competition will be held ahead of
the TMC Fall Meeting this September in
Raleigh, North Carolina.
All contestants need to be currently
enrolled or have graduated within six
months from a diesel technician program in
order to participate in the TMCFutureTech
competition. This year's competition starts
September 16.
You can choose to support
a student in a local educational program, a person
you just hired from a technical school or community
college, or sponsor a student
at a school from which
you graduated.
For those organizations
that cannot directly sponsor a student, consider
making a donation to the
TechForce Foundation.
These funds can be made in
the name of a school or as a
general donation to support
students' travel and registration to the competition.
I personally support one
to four students every year.
It is really simple; I take out
my credit card and make it
happen. My average donation amount is about $1,200
per student. I have also
donated airline miles to
help with travel for contestants. Additional costs for
each contestant include
flights or travel expenses to
the competition and three
nights of lodging. If there
are two students from the
same school, at times they
will share a room to help
reduce costs.
