The Olympiad Skills Competition was a first-of-its kind contest organized by the Haitian Chamber of Trades and Crafts (CMAH) and the National Institute of Professional Training (INFP), with the support of USAID’s Local Enterprise & Value Chain Enhancement (LEVE) Project, on July 10-12, 2015. The 3-day event gathered six vocation trade schools to compete in three specialties: electrical work, masonry and plumbing. The competition took place at MATCON 2015, Haiti’s first-ever construction exposition and trade fair hosted by the Haitian American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham Haiti), which served as an opportunity for the vocational schools to build linkages with the private sector and showcase their students skill-sets.
