To compete in the 2014 National Craft Championships, craft trainees must meet certain requirements. To ensure eligibility, ABC member companies and chapters should verify that their trainees: are actively enrolled in and sponsored by an ABC chapter, ABC member firm (in-house) or ABC “chapter-approved” training sponsor program within nine months prior to the National Craft Championships; are not certified as a journeyman more than six months prior to the date of the National Craft Championships; possess no more than six years total experience in the competition he or she enters (not including secondary school programs); did not compete within the same craft competition in any previous ABC National Craft Championships; and are approved to compete by the National Craft Championships Committee if the craft training student has not previously been employed or is not currently employed by a construction-related firm. If an ABC member or chapter knows of a craft trainee they want to send to the competition, they should read the complete list of eligibility requirements . Sponsoring companies or chapters can then submit an intent to compete form and read the full competition guidebook .
