Commercial Team Competition
Four craft journey-level professionals work as a team to complete a series of craft-specific tasks focused on electrical, plumbing, sheet metal/HVAC and carpentry in a six-hour period. Journey-level professionals may have competed in a prior NCC Commercial Team Competition/Demonstration; this includes competing in the same or a different craft that makes up the NCC Commercial Team Competition. Journey-level professionals who competed as an apprentice in the National Craft Championships ARE eligible to compete, one-time only, in the Commercial Team Competition. Team competitors will not be required to take a written assessment. Controlled copies of the craft specifications and drawings will be given to the teams during orientation. No copies of these documents will be allowed to leave the competition area.
