Matt’s first competition win was in 2008 when he won the Hyundai National Skills Competition which allowed him to compete in Korea in 2009. There he won an Excellent Skills medal. Last year, he won the National Skills Competition and is preparing to leave for South Korea later in 2015 where he plans on winning.
15 of the best technicians throughout the country are chosen to compete in the Hyundai National Skills Competition. Matt has been honing his skills throughout the year and is ready for the Seoul competition.
The search for Hyundai’s top Technician began in Montgomery, Alabama in the training facilities at Hyundai’s manufacturing plant. Highly skilled technicians from around the United States will travel there to compete for a chance to represent Hyundai Motor America at the World Skills Competition in Seoul, South Korea this year. The hand-picked contestants will undertake written testing on October 26, and perform hands-on exercises the following day. The contest will conclude with the selection of the four top competitors and an alternate. That team trains several times throughout next year prior to heading to Korea.
