The MASTERS was initially conducted in 1990 as a part of the 30 year anniversary of Volvo CE Service Training.
From 1990 to 1996 it was structured as individual competitions among service technicians.
In 1998 service technicians began competing in teams.
Since 2000 the teams consist of both parts and service technicians in regional and global finals.
The Volvo CE MASTERS is arranged by the global and regional "After Sales" training organizations.
