The Volvo International Service Training Award challenge has kicked off, pitting teams of Volvo truck and bus service market personnel against each other to help develop and improve their knowledge, skills, and ability to work as a team in workshops around the globe.

The competition starts with theory-based challenges that are issued digitally via an online web-based application and a mobile device. Teams of between 2 and 4 service market personnel work their way through these tasks in an effort to progress to the next round.

“As we’ve seen highlighted in recent times, trucks are a key part of our everyday lives,” said Richard Singer, vice president, services and retail development, Volvo Group Australia.

“Our technicians, parts and service teams, those at the frontline of our workshops, play a vital role in keeping those trucks serviced and moving. VISTA celebrates and rewards the skill, perseverance and ingenuity shown by people in workshops around the world day in-day out.”

With a history stretching back to 1957, VISTA attracts nearly 20,000 participants from more than 90 countries.

Teams from Australia and New Zealand will compete with some of the best service market personnel in the world in an effort to land a place at the global final in Gothenburg, Sweden in September this year.
