For students training for the automotive WorldSkills competition, there’s no better place to prepare than Pitt State.
In July, Mike Elder, Scott Norman and other members of the automotive technology faculty helped two of Team USA’s competitors get ready for the 43rd WorldSkills competition in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in August.
“It’s a huge competition,” said Elder, who serves as a WorldSkills Automotive Technology Expert in charge of training Team USA’s automotive competitor. “There are students there from all around the world who really know their stuff. It’s a wonderful challenge to witness and be a part of.”
The students are Michael Mullen, of San Luis Obispo, Calif., who was set to compete in the automotive service technology category, and Dustin Martsolf, of Atchison, who was competing in the heavy vehicle maintenance category.
