Congratulations to our fourth year apprentice Craig.  Craig won first place in the 2015 Cabinetmaking World Skills Competition – Canberra Region. Craig will now participate in the World Skills Australia National Competition in Melbourne 2016.

The WorldSkills competition, designed to test the entrant’s skills against national training standards, are completed over a 6 hour timeframe.  In the Cabinet Making competition, the competitors put together a spice cabinet with a dovetail drawer from supplied plans.  The Cabinet Making competition tests the competitors ability to read and work to plans, job plan and skillfully produce and finish a piece of quality furniture; within the 6 hour timeframe.

Craig’s win in the Canberra Region WorldSkills follows on from his 2014 achievements.  In 2014 Craig won the FIAA NSW/ACT Apprentice of the Year Award as well as the John Tiddy Memorial Award for his 3rd year furniture piece.

Craig is highly skilled and has a bright future ahead of him as a cabinet maker.  Well done Craig and all the best for the WorldSkills Nationals in Melbourne in 2016.
