The North Central Missouri College Savannah Campus has started a postsecondary chapter of SkillsUSA. SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. The new NCMC chapter plans to compete in robotics and automation competitions at the state, regional, and national levels.
SkillsUSA is a national organization serving teachers and high school and college students preparing for careers in technical, skilled, and service occupations, including health occupations and further education. Robotics Automation Technology Contest will increase students’ level of knowledge based on their industrial experiences while training and competing in the contest.
The NCMC SkillsUSA chapter will hold to compete at the National SkillsUSA competition in June. The top two percent of the country will be at that competition.
Established in 1965, the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America Inc. (VICA) was founded by students and teachers who were serious about their professions and saw the need for more training in the areas of leadership to complement their chosen vocation now known as SkillsUSA.
