Central Louisiana Technical Community College will host a Skills USA competition in April. ABC 31 News’ Joel Massey has more on what’s in store.
Executive Director of Skills USA Damian Glover said, “Skills USA is the pinnacle event that provides business and industry partners with direct access to students within CTE programs in our colleges within the state. So it allows business and industry partners to interact with them and also insure that students are able to meet the needs of the workforce.”
Glover highlights the things that will be happening during the Skills USA competition.
“We will offer roughly 50 to 75 competitions over the course of three days. Those are anywhere from the healthcare field to hospitality and tourism. We’ll have commercial baking competition, culinary arts. We’ll also venture into the welding, HVAC, electrical as well.”
Glover says the Skills USA helps to build the local workforce.
