Career Transitions has partnered with Lethbridge College and Skills Canada Alberta since 2001 to host the South West Regional Skills Canada event. The South West Regional Skills Canada Competition is 1 of 9 regional events held throughout Alberta.

The Regional Skills events showcase trades and technology occupations and reward students for their performance and commitment to these career paths. The Regional Competition is designed to develop a career awareness strategy that motivates youth to consider trades and technology occupations as a first-choice career option.

The South West Regional features 12 competition areas, plus 2 challenge areas. Some of the events are provincial qualifiers and that means that you must compete and win at a Regional level before you can go to the Provincial level competition. Each competition area has a contest description that outlines the skills and knowledge that will be tested during the competition or challenge.
