Meet Dave: North American Technician of the Millennium


A little trivia about our head Technician, Dave Wiebe

Dave is one of Saskatoon’s premier automotive technicians; he has competed against the best and won. In spring of 2003, technicians from across Canada and the USA were invited to enter a contest to see who the best technicians are. This contest, “Technician of the Millennium III”, tested knowledge, speed, accuracy and cleanliness of the technicians. Technicians across all of North America could enter the contest. The firs...t part was a written exam; Dave had the highest mark in Canada. After this the top 10 in each of the 8 regions competed against each other in a “hands-on” contest. The vehicles they worked on were brand new with 5 “problems” simulated to reflect real life. Each contestant had an identical car and only 2 hours to repair it correctly. Dave excelled and won the title of “Western Canadian Champion”. Dave was the only one to repair all 5 issues correctly. In October of 2003 Dave competed in Las Vegas against the 7 other regional champions from across North America. It was a tough contest with diagnostics that required total concentration and if that wasn’t enough they had 5000 spectators watching every move. When it was over Dave was named North American Technician of the Millennium winner and once again Dave was the only one to diagnose and repair all 5 issues.

Dave has been a part of the Crestview team for over 30 years.
