SkillsUSA Technical Standards
The SkillsUSA Technical Standards provide everyone with descriptions, requirements, and required aspects of competitions that occur within the SkillsUSA Championships.
The standards used at the National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC) are also the inspiration for those used at a state and local level, such as in our State Leadership and Skills Conference (SLSC). While states are encouraged to maintain standards that are in line with or very similar to the national standards, variations are allowed to fit the needs and capabilities of individual states and even regional or localized events.
Our state technical standards are made to be in line with the national technical standards. Any variations will be provided within our advisor updates and/or SLSC updates as we approach competition.
The state standards can be found HERE.
