Contests at all levels are comprehensive and consist of written, hands-on welding, code interpretation, and other test of a welder’s skills that are used everyday in the workplace. Throughout these welding contests, the pressure is on to be the best!
Each year, students from local high school and post-secondary welding programs compete in SkillsUSA competitions. A series of local, district, and state-wide contests decide which two students will represent their state at the national level. Each participating state sends its high school and post-secondary champion to the national SkillsUSA Championships held in Louisville each June.
