About the IDEAL Nationals:
“As part of IDEAL’s centennial celebration, the three-round competition was created to honor and showcase the abilities of electrical professionals, students and apprentices from across the U.S. IDEAL Electrical, the world leader in electrical tools and wire termination, will begin the competition with a series of preliminary events where winners are awarded with tool kits and an opportunity to compete in the semi-finals and finals at Walt Disney World® in Orlando… Contestants will need to demonstrate both their problem-solving and physical skills across four categories: wire cutting, stripping, termination and testing through a multi-station speed test judged by fastest completion time and overall accuracy of the wire connection. The highest scores at each location will be recorded, and the top 10 professionals and top 10 students will be displayed on the IDEAL Nationals website.”
