District 5 Regional Contest
Posted Thursday, February 06, 2014
U.A. Local Union 598 is proud to be hosting District 5 Regional Contest in Pasco, Washington. District 5 encompasses 12 States west of the Rockies. Each year the competition offers plumbers, pipefitters, welders, HVAC/R, and sprinklerfitter apprentices a unique learning experience in a competitive environment. It encourages apprentices to focus on a variety of skills required to successfully complete the apprenticeship program. The competition is designed to enable apprentices to showcase their existing skill set while providing them with the opportunity to develop new skills and improve their understanding. It is an exciting way to learn and allows apprentices to put their skills into practice increasing their confidence. Competing with Apprentices from other Apprenticeship Programs give us an excellent way to measure our Programs strengths and weaknesses. Local 598 is fortunate to have had eight (8) District 5 winners in seven (7) years, competing in the International Competition that follows the District Contest.
A judging panel assesses and scores the individual apprentices performance on a range of skills and competencies. At each contest the judges choose the top performing individual apprentice that go on to compete at the International Competition this August.
