Three service technicians will head to this year's Technical and Maintenance Conference (TMC) for free as part of a scholarship program.

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA), which runs the TMC, has announced Ostwald Bros Transport’s Gemma Hardwig, Blenners Transport and Storage’s Andrew Southern, and Divall’s Earthmoving and Bulk Haulage’s Jacob Woods as the scholarship winners.   

Each will receive a full delegate registration and accommodation to the industry event in Melbourne.

ATA CEO Chris Melham says the event and the scholarship program, running since 2012 and open to Australian service technicians under 25 years of age, is about the future of the industry.

"It’s fantastic to see so many businesses training our next generation of workshop staff," Melham says.  

"If your business has an outstanding young person in your workshop, I encourage you to consider taking them to TMC with you.

"It’s an incredible opportunity to develop their skills and expose them to the industry."

Attendees will have the choice of a range of technical sessions, compliance forums and best practice workshops, depending on their relevant interests.

Plus, as confirmed in July, event goers will have the option to attend a session hosted by three state heavy vehicle inspectors who will discuss common roadside faults and the regulatory differences between states.

TMC 2015 takes place from Monday, October 26 to Wednesday, October 28 at the Automotive Centre of Excellence at the Kangan Institute in Melbourne.
