Get a taste of competition!

Vietnam Welding Skills Competition (VWSC) is making a strong return to MTA VIETNAM this year since its inception in 2013. Coordinated by the American Welding Society, VWSC is truly an ideal place for attendees looking to hone their competitive edge and welding expertise, as well as to network with experts and peers in the welding community.

The competition offers an opportunity to go head-to-head in an intense, action-packed series of welding challenges with the nation’s most-skilled professional welders. It consists of two different competing categories: a written examination and a practical test, where each competitor is required to demonstrate their competence to read plans, interpret welding symbols and display their mastery of the manual welding processes and procedures. Participants will be competing as both individuals and teams, with awards being handed out for both aspects.

VWSC will take place on Tuesday, 4 July 2017 and the winners will be announced at 16:30pm on the same day.
