Qualifying Events are currently suspended until April 13, 2020.
IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. has suspended qualifying rounds for the IDEAL National Championship electrician challenge until April 13, 2020 as a preventative measure due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The company still intends to conduct the industry wide skills challenge this year, but the health and safety of competitors, their families and all staff involved with the program is top priority. IDEAL plans to resume the competition qualifying events on April 13, 2020, while continuing to monitor developments, public health protocols and directives to make further decisions about the program schedule if needed.
