What is TSC?

The North American Process Technology Alliance’s Troubleshooting Skills Competition (TSC) was created as a venue for advanced Process Technology students to demonstrate hands-on skills in real-time process problem solving.

Troubleshooting skills are necessary for developing a highly competent petrochemical workforce in the U.S., maintaining consistent high-quality production, and contributing to the security, safety, and regulatory compliance of our facilities.

This signature event pits the best student teams from educational institutions across the country in a competition for the title “NAPTA Troubleshooting Champions”.

Value for Educators and Industry

Enhanced problem-solving/troubleshooting skills help with student understanding of the process, help them to be safer employees, and helps them to be better team players. All these traits are high on the list for employers in their search for entry level employees.
