From NetRiders participant to WorldSkills competitor to being an Expert in WorldSkills to starting your own company … one of the personal stories.

If you talk to someone who has been at one of the WorldSkills competitions, you will learn that their experience has effected their in a similar way. It affected mine.

Many of the competitors were Networking Academy Students or even NetRiders before, win the National Skills Competitions,  represent their countries on a global level, become expert after that and continue to support the Skills competitions in the years after that. Here is one of many examples:

Andreas Strömgren competed at the WorldSkills 2007 in Shizuoka and already was the Swedish expert in Leipzig 2013.

 

NEW this Year

This year will be the largest competition ever, there are new technical description and a couple of new rules upon that. Many experienced experts will help the expert team to deal with all changes.

For the first time we are launching a pilot initiative to connect Cisco experts with competitors as they prepare for the competition in August.

Another new activity: a hackathon-style event where WorldSkills Champions and local technologists team up to solve real-world problems faced by Brazilian NGOs: 12-15 August, 2015 in São Paulo wsdc2015.worldskills.org

 

Cisco got really good learning materials for understanding Cisco’s devices and all the networking technology.
