Young mechanics flourish at WorldSkills National Championships


Mechanic and technician apprentices were able to flex their muscles at the WorldSkills National Championships in August.

The CoolDrive Auto Parts-supported event had young-guns from across Australia showcase their talents in various competitions. For mechanics, this included Auto Electrical, Auto Mechanic (Light and Heavy Vehicle) and Motorcycle Mechanic categories.
