Hyundai Motor Philippines (HMPH) has announced a representative for the brand’s World Skill Olympics later this year in South Korea. This biennial competition has been celebrating the company’s service people around the world since 1995.
HMPH’s after-sales division organized the Hyundai Technician Skills Championship (HTSC) to see which service center has the best technician to wave the Philippine flag on the international stage. The competition began with 38 candidates across more than 30 dealerships nationwide where a written exam would determine the top 12. Those 12 finalists were challenged with practical tests using evaluation units of the Hyundai Creta.
Here are the top three winners of this year’s HTSC:
- Winner: Dave Ann Louie Chou (Hyundai Las Piñas)
- 1st runner-up: Rommel Bulacso (Hyundai Tarlac)
- 2nd runner-up: Dionicio Carino (Hyundai Dagupan)
Chou has worked for Hyundai Las Piñas since 2016, and has only participated in the HTSC this year. He won a cash prize of P50,000 and a seat in this year’s WSO in October.
We salute all the participants, and we are rooting for Dave Chou in the ultimate challenge in Korea.
