The team that will participate in the Olympiades Québécoises des métiers et des technologies has been announced.
The 11 students making up the Estrie delegation were presented at a short ceremony on April 11. After having distinguished themselves during their performance at the regional level, the students will now compete at the provincial level, competing in seven categories include electricity, sales consulting, landscaping, CNC machining, welding, auto mechanics and secretarial work.
The team is composed of students from the Integrated Regional Training Centre, Centre 24-Juin, Coaticook Vocational Training Centre, Centre Expé as well as Campus Brome-Missisquoi.
Organized by Compétences Québec, the Olympiades are high-level trade competitions that highlight the know-how and talent of those who have chosen to qualify in a vocational or technical training program.
