World Skills

Optima Worldwide is proud to support SkillsUSA’s World Team which competes every other year in the WorldSkills Championships. Kyle, the founder of Optima, has been selected as the technical expert representing the United States in the upcoming WorldSkills Championships in London.

As the technical expert, it is Kyle’s responsibility to train the competitor selected from the national championships, and to prepare him or her for the far more rigorous four day world competition. Skills tested at the world level include:

  • Graphic design
  • HTML/CSS
  • PHP (programming language)
  • MySQL (database language)
  • Javascript
  • Flash
  • SEO and coding best practices

Our involvement with SkillsUSA has been truly rewarding, as we get to train promising young developers and see them compete with the best in the world! (It’s also a great recruiting opportunity where we find some of our best interns and employees…!)
