SkillsUSA Georgia Championships
The SkillsUSA Championships Technical Standards are the official rules of all Nationally recognize contests. The official Technical Standards can be found on the SkillsUSA Registration Site by logging in with your paid professional membership and Pin number (retrieval guide found here). Please be sure to reference the Technical Standards for the current school year, as they are updated on an annual basis by the National SkillsUSA Staff.
Please note that all Georgia Only contests are governed by their own rules not found in the official technical standards. These contest rules can be found under downloads at the bottom of this page.

The SkillsUSA Clothing & Tools App
SkillsUSA has updated the “SkillsUSA: Clothing and Tools” app for 2018. This is a great starter resource that does not replace the SkillsUSA Championships Technical Standards but connects users to SkillsUSA’s membership site, where educators can join as professional members to receive the full standards at no charge.
For each contest, the new “SkillsUSA: Clothing and Tools” app includes an overview, clothing requirements, and eligibility and safety guidelines, as well as lists the specific tools, equipment or materials that contestants need to provide.
It is offered completely free of charge for students, instructors and SkillsUSA business partners.
The app is available now in both the Apple Store: http://apple.co/2dtlb8d
and the Google Play Store: http://bit.ly/2e5fRec.
Georgia Only or National?
Georgia Only Contest Rules
The National Technical Standards are designed for contests that last over several days. At SLSC you only have several hours to complete your contest. A shorter version of these guidelines are posted under “Contest Updates” so you know the exact objectives within the technical standards that you will be tested on at SLSC. Contest Updates could also include a specific tool list or other updates that the Tech Chairs would like to communicate to the contestants.
