WorldSkills Auto Elec Comp

By  |  0 Comments

Held every two years, the WorldSkills Australia National Championships is an Australia-wide competition that seeks to the find best apprentice across over 60 skills and trades. Auto Electrical has long been one of the most competitive trades represented at this competition, with Auto Electrical apprentices all across the country competing at a regional competition before being selected to compete nationally.

After two postponements due to covid-19 lockdowns and border restrictions, the most recent WorldSkills Australia National Championships was held as a hybrid competition for the first time, with a flagship event in Perth, and satellite competitions at multiple locations across QLD, NSW, SA and ACT.

In order to uphold the integrity of the WorldSkills Australia National Championships, competitions at each location needed to be replicated perfectly, so that the tasks and judging were not compromised in any way.

The Auto Electrical judging team needed to be expanded to cope with this new challenge, and we were lucky enough to engage the services of the following people to adjudicate over the 3 different State venues:

Rick Sullivan, Chief Judge, from TAFE QLD Gold Coast, Bruce Muller from SkillsTech Australia Brisbane, Scott Williamson from Cooldrive Autoparts, Brad Gamel from MTAWA, Sam Jones from TAFE NSW Wetherill Park and Peter Coleman, retired TAFE New England teacher and former Chief Judge.
