CNC Software, Inc. provides Mastercam and access to Mastercam University free of charge to WorldSkills competitors for the year leading up to the competition. Additionally, Mastercam’s Reseller in Russia, Colla, Ltd., provided direct assistance to WorldSkills in the preparations for the event in Kazan.

WorldSkills Kazan 2019 is the year’s largest international skills competition with young people from across the globe competing to be the best of the best in their chosen skill. The competition takes place at the Kazan Expo International Exhibition Centre, Kazan, Russia from August 22-27, 2019. Billed as the “Olympics of the skilled trades,” competitors will compete for Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals to take back to their respective countries.

WorldSkills has come to symbolize the pinnacle of excellence in vocational training. Every two years, hundreds of young skilled people, accompanied by their teachers and trainers, gather from all corners of the globe to compete before the public in the skills of their various trades, and test themselves against demanding standards.

CNC Software is active in this competition at a grassroots level, helping the contestants around the world with software to prepare for the event. This is done in conjunction with the local Mastercam Resellers to get them involved with future engineers and machinists.

“Participating takes time, talent, and treasure. With all the lamenting about a lack of skills in the U.S., let’s support the ones who are championing those skills, who are true masters of their crafts, and are at the starting gate of their careers,” says Meghan West, President of CNC Software, Inc. West continues, “Mastercam is a global partner of WorldSkills, and for over 22 years, we have served as the exclusive CAM partner in the event. This makes me proud.”
