Each year Ryder holds a series of competitions between their technicians all throughout the country to name the top technician in the nation. Ohio Technical College attended Ryder Top Technician Competition in Archbold, OH on May 7th 2015.
Recently Ryder and Ohio Technical College agreed to start a internship program for upcoming graduates of Ohio techs diesel and auto diesel programs. This internship will be completed in the last 10 weeks of each students program and will allow the students to work in either of the two Ryder repair facilities available in the Cleveland area. Upon successful completion of the internship program the students may accept positions available at any of the Ryder repair locations across the U.S. that are seeking entry level technicians.
As this agreement progressed, 4 students were chosen for the internship program and were also invited to attend the technician competition so they could see up close what it takes to be a contestant. Those students were Jesse Rayburn, Geoffrey Hunsberger, Matthew Chivers and Joshua Koontz. Ryder believes in continuous training and rewarding their technicians for being the best in their field. This competition was a sneak peek of the awesome career opportunities Ryder has to offer the future technicians of this industry.
