Three LCCC students recently competed in the Diesel Skills State Competition in Gillette. Two students, Wesley Metz and Paul Flanagan, placed in the top 10.
The competition is designed to test students’ skill levels and knowledge in such areas as electrical, engine diagnostics, hydraulics, failure analysis and job interview skills.
This structure allows industry representatives to test the skill set of emerging future technicians so that they can better understand their strengths and areas for improvement.
The competition featured students from colleges and high schools across the state.
“Our students gained a great amount of experience and knowledge from the experience and had a great time as well,” said Seth Robbins, diesel technology instructor.
