Ford AAA Competition

SLCC Automotive & Related Technologies will host the annual Ford AAA Competition on Thursday, April 26.  

Salt Lake Community College has hosted the Ford AAA Student Auto Skills Competition since the 1970’s.  (In those days it was known as the Plymouth Troubleshooting Contest.) 
This year, 362 of the  best and brightest 11th or 12th grade auto technology students from 24 of Utah high schools took the state qualifying exam for the honor of being  one of the ten, 2 person teams to compete in the State “hands-on” contest.   In the "hands-on" competition, new Ford Motor Company vehicles were uniformly "bugged" so that each team has identical malfunctions to diagnose and repair.  The competition requires repairs to be made with the highest quality workmanship in the lowest total time. The winning two-person team from each state and their instructor are provided expense-paid trips (paid by Ford & AAA) to the national finals in June 2012 in addition to thousands of do…

Adding basic safety supplies is another easy and important step to take. Making sure there's a flashlight in your desk with fresh batteries and a couple bottles of water nearby would make a big difference in the event of a catastrophe.
When you are away from work, keeping you and your family safe requires awareness and preparation as w…
