Cat Trial 10: Tech Test celebrates the amazing work technicians do and gives them the chance to show off their skills! Technicians work in a fast-paced environment and Tech Test combines that with exciting challenges to test their skill and endurance.

The course consists of four challenges: The Cat Can Test is a 3D puzzle we designed; an oversized version of the one that some dealerships use to gage mechanical aptitude. Next, we test their desire to learn, where they’ll match Cat engines to specific applications. From there, they’ll hit the troubleshooting challenge, testing their knowledge of Cat services. And they’ll finish with a safety mindset assessment, where they use the Cat App to do a walkaround and pull a parts order.
