Earlier this year, New England Institute of Technology students won eight medals overall and took GOLD in each of the four categories that they competed in during the SkillsUSA 42nd annual Rhode Island state Awards and Recognition Ceremony at the Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in Providence.

SkillsUSA programs help to establish industry standards for job skill training in the classroom. These industry-driven competitive events are modeled after the Olympics where the top three individuals/ teams receive gold, silver, or bronze medals.
