What is WorldSkills?

The WorldSkills competition is the biggest vocational education and skills event in the world. Participants are selected from competitions held in over 70 WorldSkills’ member countries and regions and represent the best of their peers in more than 45 skills.

Among these tools were calipers; micrometers; indicators; height gauges and granite surface plates. Additional support in the form of coordinate measuring machines, complete with experienced Mitutoyo operators, were also made available to the manufacturing technology competitions.
