Northampton Community College Alumni Wins Gold Medal at Global TechMasters
Every year, Mercedes-Benz Service sponsors the Global TechMasters international competition to identify the best service teams worldwide. This past November, Team USA was crowned “World’s Best Workshop Team” by Daimler AG at the international competition in Germany.
Wolf is a Lehigh Valley native and graduate of Northampton Community College’s (NCC) auto technology program, a program supported by GLVADA.In addition to the team competition, several members won individual recognition, including Doug Wolf, who was awarded the Gold Medal for World’s Best Drivetrain Technician.
GLVADA works closely with NCC, partnering with students pursuing auto technology careers. GLVADA dealers employ dozens of NCC student interns, and nearly every GLVADA car dealership employs Northampton Auto Tech graduates in its shops and service departments. The association also maintains two scholarships for NCC Auto Technology students each year.
Wolf gave much credit for his Team USA selection to his professors at NCC stating, “The knowledge I acquired from NCC definitely set me apart from the rest of the guys that I have seen.”
