Electrical Construction Wiring

Working from drawings and specification sheets, competitors are required to install an electrical system common in most residential projects. Judging is based on general workmanship, accuracy of layout and installation, and adherence to the current national electrical code and standard industry safe practices. Competitors’ knowledge of the materials used in the electrical industry is tested when they are required to fill an order from a bill of material that is used to complete the hands-on portion of this contest. A written test is also included.

The SkillsUSA Illinois Championships follow the current edition of the SkillsUSA National Technical Standards. These are available to professional members (advisors and teachers) following membership registration.
