The search is on once again to find the Motor Trade Association (MTA) Apprentice of the year 2010. MTA is encouraging automotive businesses from all sectors of the automotive industry to put forward their top apprentices.

This year’s competition is expected to be bigger and better than ever, especially with the merger of the traditional theory based ‘Apprentice of the Year’ contest with the practical, hands-on ‘MTA Apprentice Challenge’.

The competition aims to provide automotive apprentices with a challenging, but fun and practical competition. Each apprentice will be tasked with a bookwork test and a practical tool off, followed by a panel interview.

The competition is run by the MTA with assistance from MITO and WELTEC.

How does the competition process work?
Stage One: Applicants will first be judged on their bookwork.

Stage Two & Stage Three: Panel interview & national competition:
The top four finalists from stage one will compete in a ‘tool off’ to be held in Wellington (a half day practical test set and judged by Weltec tutors), followed by a panel interview with three MTA staff.

To enter nominees must: Have completed a minimum of two years of their National Certificate qualification and be currently employed in a workshop; Be employed by a financial Member of the Motor Trade Association; Have paid all MITO fees; Be a New Zealand citizen or resident

The Prize: A Castrol Racing Pit crew/Workshop opportunity in Surfers Paradise; $2000 prize money; a Study grant from MITO (special conditions apply)
