Woodwork Career Alliance to train skills evaluators at IWF The Nellysford, Va.-based Woodwork Career Alliance of North America (WCA), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to addressing the skilled worker shortage through the development and assessment of skill standards, will conduct seven sessions to train Accredited Skill Evaluators during the International Woodworking Fair (IWF), August 24-27 in Atlanta.
Evaluators are responsible for assessing and awarding skill stamps to woodworkers participating in the WCA’s Passport credential program in Canada and the U.S. The WCA Passport is a portable, personal, permanent record of skill achievements by the individual holder as a woodworking professional.
The sessions at IWF are scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon on all four days of the show and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Wednesday-Friday at the Georgia World Congress Center. Through cooperation with IWF management, the WCA is offering a “show special” $100 US registration fee for the skill evaluator training sessions.
The $150 US discount is being evenly split by IWF and the WCA. To register for one of the training sessions, contact Scott Nelson, WCA president, at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (402) 610-6043.
