From the Irving Weekly website:
Conner Synder and Thomas Rogers from MacArthur High School in Irving placed seventh in the competition and both team members received a $1,000 UTI scholarship.
The teams of two competed in five different areas: parts identification, brake problems, climate control, electrical problems and a written, Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) test with a panel of UTI-Dallas/Fort Worth instructors judging their work.
“This competition allows students to see firsthand the highly-specialized training and technical knowledge required to become an automotive technician,” said Jesus Miranda, campus president of UTI-Dallas/Fort Worth. “Plus, it’s a great opportunity for students with a passion for the automotive industry to put their skills to the test in a real-world setting with state-of-the-art equipment.”
