Martin Fer­land, of Stanstead, took the sil­ver medal at the

Que­bec Pro­fes­sional and Tech­ni­cal Olympiad held over

the weekend in Que­bec City. Stanstead’s Martin Fer­land won the sil­ver medal in the In­dus­trial elec­tronic cat­e­gory at the Que­bec Pro­fes­sional and Tech­ni­cal Olympiad, held over the week-end in Que­bec City. It honours the best of the stu­dents in 36 trades.

More than 12,000 vis­i­tors were able, last Thurs­day and Fri­day, to watch the work of the 304 can­di­dates at the Que­bec Fair Cen­tre which looked like a gi­ant mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary shop.

The next step is the Cana­dian fi­nal to be held in Toronto in early June and it is not known yet what form the Que­bec del­e­ga­tion will take. Then it’s São Paulo, in Brazil, in 2015.

Com­pé­tences Québec, the or­ga­nizer, is a found­ing mem­ber of Skills/Com­pé­tences Canada, af­fil­i­ated with World­Skills In­ter­na­tional, present in 65 coun­tries. Apart from the Olympiads, it is in charge of In­foroute FPT, the por­tal of the pro­fes­sional and tech­ni­cal train­ing and of the sin­gle en­try web­site.
