This WorldSkills UK competition focuses on all the essential requirements for a successful career in industrial electronics. Competitors undertake the role of an electronics technician and are required to work to industry recognised standards.
The competition is largely practical, however, competitors will be required to have a thorough understanding of design principles and theory associated with the fundamentals of electrical, analogue, and digital principles.
Competitors will also be expected to follow a set of pre-competition instructions and download the software to become familiar in the use of the dedicated printed circuit design software which is used in the competition.
