Region Online Testing

Optional Region Testing - Wild Card Slot 

This year, all region contests will have an optional testing component. The test that will be offered will be a general SkillsUSA knowledge test (similar to the Professional Development test). The test scores will be used to fill slots that didn't fill due to lack of participation in other regions. 

In other words, taking this test could be your ticket to SLSC!

All tests will be available between 7AM-5PM on January 5, 2023. A proctor (non SkillsUSA/ACCT, Public Safety or Cosmetology) must be available to access the online system. Timing of the test session will begin when the test/questions are presented, not when the first question is answered. Responses will be automatically submitted when the time expires. The time limit will be 90 minutes for each test. The entire test is accessible throughout the test session. Please review the use of scroll bars with competitors prior to testing and remind them not to close the testing window.

Proctor Form

Every chapter must submit a proctor form by January 5, 2023.

 

 

 

 

Student Supervision Verification Letter

SkillsUSA requires each school chapter to have one advisor or adult chaperone for every ten students. When participating in SkillsUSA events, there must be a school employee present for each school registered. SkillsUSA requires each school to have a male and female chaperone if traveling with both male and female students. A female advisor cannot travel without a male chaperone or advisor if traveling with all male students. A male advisor cannot travel without a female chaperone or advisor if traveling with all female students. If a male or female advisor from different schools are sharing the responsibility of supervising their male and female students, each advisor must submit a letter from their school principal or CTAE director. This letter must be on school letterhead, with the principal and/or CTAE director’s signature, stating that both schools agree to the shared responsibility of supervising male and female students. Each advisor must complete the form and submit their individual letter. The letters must be submitted by the registration deadline. The upload will be labeled as Student Supervision Verification Upload. Each conference will have a link to upload the Student Supervision Verification letter. 

The deadline to upload this form is your region's registration deadline. 

Registration, Personal and Liability Release Form 

All Registration, Personal and Liability Release forms of all conference-registered school representatives (including, but not limited to instructors, participants, chaperones and observers) will remain in the possession of the advisor at all times during the SkillsUSA Conference. Have your SkillsUSA Members participating submit this to you when  they return their field trip absence form.
