In near future, low-quality workers will be the first to lose their jobs when machines replace us. A poorly qualified welder will give way to machines that produce fast and accurate welds. To avoid that, Vietnam has chosen a different route from Bangladesh and India – countries that provide cheap labor at low cost. The Government of Vietnam and individuals have invested in facilities for high quality welding school to ensure Vietnamese welder meet international standards.

Through recruiting projects, Vietnam Manpower has proven that 85% of Vietnam welders have passed the skill test with employers around the world. To achieve this great achievement, they all have to undergo the following difficult stages.

Welders will take part in a trade test organized by manpower agency, show their welding skills and also knowledge of safety.
