Implemented in 2020-2021 nationally, all Championships Career Competitions will include a Professional Development Test. The Professional Development Test is 2 ½% of the competitors overall score. The Professional Development Test is a 50 question multiple choice exam that assesses members' preparedness to enter the workforce as defined by the SkillsUSA Framework, which identifies skills that are essential for success in the workplace and life.
The SkillsUSA Framework outlines all skills needed to be job-ready Day One. Every aspect of SkillsUSA programs are built around the Framework, which emphasizes personal skills, workplace skills, and technical skills grounded in academics. The purpose of the Framework is to provide a common language to communicate what members learn in the classroom.
