The Austrian medals were awarded in the following skills categories - Industrial Control, Painting and Decorating, CNC-Turning and Plumbing.

All participants who gained more than 500 out of a possible 600 points were awarded a certificate of honour. This meant that the Austrian team took home a total of 18 certificates of honour from  World Skills Shizouka 2007 . Austria once again proved that despite being a small country, it is among the world's best with regard to vocational training.
