Skill Standards Being Released for 65 Tools and Machines Almost Done!

The 50+ Skill Standards’ authors and editors have almost completed their work. The Woodwork Career Alliance (WCA) has specific machine and skill needs that it is still working on. What are they?

"We are so close, it would be a shame not to use the collected wisdom of our industry to cross the finish line," WCA Secretary Greg Heuer said.

What are the Skill Standards you'd expect from your employees for...?

  • Multiple-spindle Horizontal Boring machine
  • Dowel Bore and Insert machine
  • Random Orbital Sander
  • Duplicating Lathe
  • Back Knife Lathe
  • Roll Coater Finishing machine
  • Curtain Coating Finishing machine
  • Robotic Sprayer Finishing machine

If you know even a little about any of these machines, please drop Greg Heuer a line at gregh@woodworkcareer.org to say you can help for one hour.
