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. These documents will not be allowed to leave the competition area.
