Every year, the Toyota National Skills program is conducted across Australia over nine months and the top performers from each region compete in the National Skills Region Finals.

Recently the Central Region National Finals took place here in Adelaide, and we’re extremely proud to announce that our team took out top spot in three of seven categories!

Congratulations to our Toyota Central Region Champions

Apprentice Technician – Cameron Stewart, CMI Toyota Christies Beach

Toyota National Skills

The Apprentice Technician category has been developed to test the skills and knowledge of participants, and to give them the opportunity to learn and develop further. We couldn’t be prouder of Cameron, who clearly has a very exciting career ahead of him!

Technician – Aaron Radogna, CMI Toyota Stepney

Toyota National Skills

The Technician category sees the handful of participants selected to progress to finals, able to celebrate their skills and achievements, and to have our very own Technician, Aaron, take out top spot for our region is an incredible feat! Well done, Aaron.

Guest Experience – Enzo Vin, CMI Toyota

Toyota National Skills

Guest Experience is such a key part of dealership life, and this category is certainly designed to challenge and inspire its participants. Enzo is no stranger to success, having recently taken out the National Gold Award for Marketing and Guest Experience at the 2023 Toyota Dealer of the Year Awards, so we’re extremely excited to see Enzo continue to achieve at Toyota National Skills!

We’d also like to give a special mention to CMI Toyota Adelaide, Sales Consultant, Stephen Buckley, who was recognised with a special award in the Sales Experience category. Stephen was the Sales Experience Toyota Finance Winner!

  • Diagnosis Technician
  • Technician
  • Apprentice Technician
