VISTA (Volvo International Service Training Award) is the world’s largest competition for aftermarket personnel, open to all professionals within the Volvo Trucks’ global service network. The aim of the competition is to help employees develop and improve their knowledge, skills, and ability to work as a team. The end result is improved customer service and increased customer satisfaction.

“VISTA highlights the best of the best and provides a great opportunity for training and continuing education focused on keeping trucks moving.” said Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “Regardless of which team emerges as champion, the real winners of VISTA are our customers.”

How does it work?

  • Participants in seven North American areas (Canada, Mexico and five U.S. regions) form teams of two to four people.
  • The competition begins with three rounds of theoretical tests administered online, taken in each teams’ respective workshop. Questions pertain to Volvo systems and procedures.
  • The top-scoring team in each area will face off in a hands-on competition in Greensboro, North Carolina, in March 2016.
  • The three best North American teams will travel to Gotherburg, Sweden, in May 2016 to compete against 29 other teams for the VISTA World Championship.
