RDC apprenticeship students competing at 2019 Skills Canada Nationals

Red Deer College will be well-represented at the 25th Skills Canada National Competition in Halifax, Nova Scotia on May 28 and 29 with six apprenticeship students and alumni competing at the annual event.

Three of the competitors are gold medal winners from the recent Skills Canada Alberta Provincial Competition, held on May 8 and 9: Clay Flack, RDC Sprinkler System Installer alumnus, Dayton Playford, RDC Welder alumnus, and Sam Rufenacht, 4th year Heavy Equipment Technician apprentice.

These three students will test their skills against apprentices from across the country at the national event. They will complete three projects over a two-day span, and will be judged by industry experts who assess the competitor’s practical skills, trouble-shooting abilities, and technical knowledge in their trades.
