Skills/Compétences Canada recently held skills competitions for aspiring skilled trades participants in Toronto, Ontario and Edmonton, Alberta.

Eaton has been a corporate supporter of Skills Ontario for the past several years and has provided competition products for the Skills committee and its contestants.

The competitions included Eaton control components to test the skill level of students for the assembly of control panels, as well as the simulated installation of residential load-centres, inclusive of Surge Suppression Devices, Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters, and Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (breakers).

At the Toronto competition, aspiring students who attended had the opportunity to view the educational seminar “Understanding Control Wiring” presented by Eaton.
