For the past 29 years, the ABC of Wisconsin Apprenticeship & Training Trust has  showcased the skills of top apprentices in Carpentry, Electrical, HVAC, Plumbing and Heat  & Frost Insulation with the ABC of Wisconsin Skill Competition. These apprentices will be participating in a 2-hour written exam and a 4-hour hands-on practical exam. Winners of this competition will go on to represent Wisconsin at the National Craft Championships in Long Beach, California in March.
