On April 29, CDI Electronics participated in judging the Florida SkillsUSA state competition held at George Stone Career College in Pensacola, FL. The competition challenged twenty-five students in skills such as mechanical measuring, diagnostic troubleshooting, and testing of engine components.
“We were honored to be asked to participate in this years Florida SkillsUSA competition”, says Thomas “TJ” James “we see the value in supporting the educational facilities as they introduce new marine industry professionals to our market”.
CDI Electronics manned two testing stations, one where students had to diagnose a Suzuki power head using CDI’s Marine Engine Diagnostic Software, M.E.D.S., and the other was an ignition test station for recording various electrical measurements.
CDI Electronics will be participating in the National Skills USA Championships held in Kansas City, MO on June 23-27, 2013. For more information about SkillsUSA visit: http://www.skillsusa.org/events/nlsc.shtml
