Assembler Competition

Information about the Assembler Competition

SkillsUSA Washington has several industry and community partners that provide support for the state, regions, local community and Individual program areas.

SME – SkillsUSA Partnership

SME resources enhance career and technical education (CTE) curricula related to (3) Career Clusters: STEM, Information Technology, and Manufacturing.

The SME resources are NOT curriculum. SME resources are developed exclusively for high school classrooms to allow the students, as well as, the educators to tap into the strengths of SME Membership Network and professional and technical members.

SkillsUSA Educators and Students receive SME Membership at NO COST. The costs of the memberships are supported through business and industry partners of SME

Testout Partnership

TestOut is the leader in online IT and Microsoft Office training. Our LabSim provides students with a broad range of hands-on experience in a safe, simulated environment. Since 1991, we have helped hundreds of thousands of individuals acquire the skills they need to progress in their education and careers.


It isn’t enough for students to memorize terms and procedures. To be “Industry Ready,” they need to have the muscle memory and confidence that come from performing actual on the job tasks. We believe this so passionately that every dimension of learning in our courseware is focused on developing skills through experience and practice. Our virtual simulations inside of LabSim give students access to over $100,000 worth of equipment and software to practice on 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
