Technology & Maintenance
OTA offers plenty of technology & maintenance training classes across the state, including our annual Maintenance Fair and SuperTech Competition in Portland. Visit our events page to see our full list of upcoming classes.
- Maintenance Fair
- National Technician Appreciation Week
The 2020 Digital TMC Maintenance Fair was a success. Please contact us if you are interested in watching the recordings. Watch our emails and the Event Calendar for details on the 2021 Maintenance Fair.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the 2020 SuperTech Competition was cancelled on the national level, so OTA and many other state associations also cancelled their events. We are still waiting on 2021, so please watch for an announcement. We are excited to see all the technicians' refined skills when we are able to safety host our next event!

Thank You, Technicians!
It takes a lot of skill and patience to properly diagnose equipment and make sure our trucks are running safe on our roads. That's why ATA's TMC launched National Technician Appreciation Week - to recognize diesel technicians. Thank you to all the people that help our drivers move all the supplies we need, even in times of emergency!
