Day subsequent hands-on skills challenge. Following the Day One qualifying round, there is a reception at which TMC announces the names of a predetermined number of contestants who are eligible to compete on Day Two in the Hands-on Skills Challenge. The last day of the event consists of a technician training fair (featuring numerous hands-on job related training classes that qualify for NATEF continuing education units), followed by an competition awards banquet.
