Luke Heesterman, CablePrice Christchurch has the honour of being named Fuso NZ technical skills competition overall winner for 2021 followed by fellow CablePrice technicians Tom Trotter in 2nd and Alan Robson rounding out 3rd place

CablePrice put forward 3 Christchurch based technicians, first competing in the national knockout rounds with the aim of scoring one of only 5 places up for grabs in the final. To their and our delight, all 3 made it through the knockout round securing themselves and CablePrice 3 of the 5 places in the national finals.

The top five technicians were invited to a two-day practical and written assessment at Fuso NZ’s Auckland training facility on 3-4 August, where they underwent 5 one hour-long assessments – two theory and three practical – covering technical knowledge, customer service, diagnostic process and overall efficiency.

“While not the first time I’ve competed in a competition at this level, this FUSO competition proved to be relatively stressful and challenging. The contestants were of high calibre combined with the time constraints we had to work too. I feel this experience will serve me as a great learning curb while helping me improve as a technician” says Luke Heesterman.

As the overall winner Luke was awarded a new toolbox, laptop and a 4 channel Pico Oscilloscope.

“This is not just an outstanding result for Luke with winning first place but also for Tom and Alan in rounding out the top 3 spots in what was a very competitive FUSO competition. CablePrice is just as proud as all 3 of our technicians for having achieved such an accomplishment” Says Paul Mulvihill, CablePrice Christchurch Service manager.
