Local Volkswagen mechanic Scott Roberts of Roger Jobs in Bellingham was recently named the National Champion among all Volkswagen factory certified technicians in the United States.
This is the fourth year Volkswagen of America has held the Service Qualification Championship contest.
Several thousand Volkswagen technicians throughout the
United States started the competition with online tests at their dealership.
Next, the top 720 technicians from the 12 regions competed at an on-site location with both hands-on and written testing.
Finally, the top technician from each of the 12 regions then competed at the national contest. This year they were held from January 18 to 20 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
“We are very proud and honored by Scott’s first place finish in this competitive and challenging contest and for him to be recognized by Volkswagen of America as the best technician in the United States.” said Byron Sprague, general manager of Roger Jobs Motors. “Scott is a team player and has been a valued member of our service department team for over 13 years.”
In addition to winning the Volkswagen Technician National award, Scott won a trip for two to Aruba and will also travel to Germany to compete in the Volkswagen International Technician competition later this year.
