Special Programs




TMCSuperTech is North America’s premier skills competition for professional commercial vehicle technicians. TMCSuperTech contestants come from all segments of the trucking industry, and many are state, regional or corporate champions.

The competition is a two-day event. Day One features various table-top and hands-on skills challenges for the Professional Technician Track, which includes all types of technicians. Following the Day One rounds, there is a reception for all competitors. Day Two features more skills challenges. Everyone competes in both day's rounds.  The last day of the event consists of a technician training fair (featuring numerous hands-on job related training classes that qualify for ASE Education Foundation continuing education units), followed by an competition awards banquet.

The competition is open to any actively employed commercial vehicle technician. However, all competitors must be TMC Technician Members. Active members are eligible to enter the competition without fee. Nonmembers will pay an entry fee and will become members for the remainder of the year. Verified champions of state trucking association technician skills competitions may enter without paying a fee. Grand Champions of previous TMC National Technician Skills Competitions are eligible to compete. [Membership forms available at or by calling TMC offices at (703) 838-1763.]

TMCSuperTech registration forms can be found at http://tmcfall.trucking.org. Registrations forms must be postmarked by a specific date set by TMC. Only preregistered contestants are eligible to compete. Contestants are sent a confirmation of their registration and housing accommodations in advance of the event.
