Celebrated the second week of February each year, SkillsUSA Week gives state associations, advisors and student members the opportunity to promote SkillsUSA programs and activities at the local and state levels. This year's theme is Job-Ready, Day One.

As a sponsor of Skill​​​sUSA, Sandvik Coromant is proud to be part of a program that introduces and encourages manufacturing careers, teaches machining skills and offers leadership training to students in middle school, high school and college.

We support CNC Milling and CNC Turning student competitors through knowledge-sharing as they prepare for their local, state and national competitions. This year's national competition takes place in Louisville, KY on June 4-5, 2018.
