Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia

HVIA will be organising, at the Brisbane Truck Show (16-19 May 2019), its biennial National Apprentice Challenge. This is a fabulous apprentice development opportunity for heavy vehicle mechanical apprentices at any stage of their training. Participation is open to apprentices employed in the heavy vehicle industry.

HVIA will host the successful apprentices to attend the four days of the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show with all expenses covered, including travel, meals and accommodation.

Teams of two apprentices will be selected to represent each of HVIA’s three regions:

Eastern Region – New South Wales, ACT and Queensland

Southern Region – Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia

North-Western Region – Western Australia and Northern Territory

The three regional teams will compete against each other in heats over the first three days of the show, on identical trucks, generously supplied by Iveco Trucks Australia, to identify and rectify a series of programmed faults as the clock ticks.

The winning team is the first successfully to identify and repair all the faults, or the team that rectifies the most faults within the allowed time frame.

The two best performing teams throughout the heats will compete in the final on the Sunday (fourth day) of the show.

The teams are selected from nominees based on their results from a two-hour exam held in each region.

Nominations close on Friday 22nd February 2019.
