Top Technician 2014 final six announced

Semi-final tasks at Delphi see six eliminated

Published:  07 April, 2014

The six finalists of Top Technician 2014 have been announced after a gruelling semi-final stage at the Delphi Training Centre in Warwick.

The top six excelled over the course of the day which featured six 20-minute tasks designed to test their diagnostic abilities. Each technician was judged and scored at each task, with the total across the day making up the final score.

The top six (in alphabetical order) are:

The next stage of the competition will see the six finalists undertake a number of more detailed and difficult tasks at the Honda Institute in Slough on 16th May, while the winner and runner up will be presented with their prizes, from a fund of more than £16,000, at Top Technician Live on 30th May at Mercedes Benz World in Surrey.

Competition organiser Nicola St. Clair comments: "The semi-final was a closely fought contest of skill and ability across a range of different challenges. Those who did not make the cut should be very proud of their achievement, reaching the final 12 from the 600 who entered is a testament to their abilities."

Maurice Morton from Dickies adds: "I would like to congratulate the final six for Top Technician 2014 and we are delighted to present them a  pair of Antrim boots which I hope will be useful for their working day. This competition is important to highlight what a vital role skilled technicians play and I wish the finalists all the best."
