Technical Volunteers

Provincial Technical Committee Members

Provincial Technical Committees (PTC) are formed for each competition area. Skills Canada Newfoundland and Labrador encourages the membership of representatives from all industries (public, private and other) on its Provincial Technical Committees, with each committee having no more than four members. The sole purpose of each PTC is the preparation and implementation of its respective competition.

National Technical Committee Members

National Technical Committees (NTC) are formed to serve as an operational and advisory committee to the National Secretariat. The committee will provide each region of Canada a voice in the development of all competitions during the Skills Canada National Competition held annually.

WorldSkills Experts

Experts have many duties to ensure that Team Canada competitors are prepared for competition at the international level. These duties include: prepare the technical program for team member, perform periodic evaluations and play an active role in the competitor’s training prior to the WorldSkills Competition.
