The Provincial Skills Canada Competition (PSCC) features high school and post-secondary students from across Alberta, competing in trade and technical events.
The competition areas range from autobody repair to welding, graphic design to baking. During the two-day competition, each student specializes in one event area and must complete a project that has been designed by experts in that field. For example, a website developer competitor may be given the challenge of constructing a website for a fictional company.
The PSCC brings trade and tech careers to life and is an ideal field trip for junior and senior high school students.
High School Students begin their journey with Skills Canada at either a Regional Skills Canada Competition or through in-school selection for those events not offered in their region.
Post-Secondary students are selected by Skills Canada Alberta, Apprenticeship and Industry Training or their Technical Institute.
Students who placed first in their event earned a spot on Team Alberta, and represented the province at the 2016 Skills Canada National Competition in Moncton, June 5-8, 2016.
