Alert 12 



JSD A - Any skill may be demonstrated, provided it is a skill related to the occupational program of the competitor.

Page 3, Line 3 NTS - Competition Guidelines

JSD Open - Any technical skill may be demonstrated. The skill does not have to relate to the occupational program of the competitor.

Page 3, Line 3 NTS - Competition Guidelines

A is very clear, but we often ponder Open.

Direct from Nationals: The JSD Open technical skill does not have to relate to the program of study, but it CAN relate to the program of study. NTS Purpose: To evaluate each competitor’s ability to demonstrate and explain an entry-level technical skill used either in the occupational area for which he or she is training or outside the training area.
