Two Quebecers have qualified for the 43rd WorldSkills competition

April 29, 2015

Maxime Gauvreau, carpenter-joiner, and Marc-Antoine Bettez, refrigeration mechanic, will participate in this prestigious international event that brings together more than 1,000 competitors from 67 regions and countries. The competition encourages young people, as well as their teachers and trainers, to challenge their skills against international standards in various sectors of business, services, and industry.

To qualify for Worldskills, Gauvreau and Bettez won at both the Olympiades québécoises de la formation professionnelle et technique and the Canadian WorldSkills competition. Bettez also won the gold medal in refrigeration in a competition in the Netherlands, while Gauvreau won gold at the WorldSkills Oceania Competition, held in April in New Zealand.

Bettez and Gauvreau are models of excellence for the entire construction industry. We wish them the best of luck at the competition!
