Alabama SkillsUSA provides students with job skills training & 21st Century employability skills.
Students can grow their technical and leadership skills through competitions, hands-on activities, and leadership development.
Contestants demonstrate their ability to perform jobs and skills based on the task list outlined by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) and the ASE Education Foundation.
The competition includes a series of workstations to assess skills in the following areas: metal straightening, attachment methods, plastic repair and structural analysis. The overall appearance of the finished product, speed and proper safety practices are judged.
There are written tests on estimating, structural analysis, and an ASE exam. The students fill out a job application, bring a resume, and go through a mock interview.
