33 sites throughout the Perm Region, 115 competencies, more than 700 participants, 5 days of professional tests and expert work – all this is the regional stage of the Professionals championship. Ural Chemical Technology College (UСTC) has again shown a high level of competition organization and training of its students.

Traditionally, within the framework of the championship, UCTC has become a platform for the competence "Repair of technological equipment of chemical industries". The college students demonstrated their professional skills and abilities in four competencies.

"Thanks to the Professionalism project and a systematic partnership with our main employer, Metafrax Chemicals, in recent years we have been able to enhance and strengthen our educational and material base. Today, it allows us to train professionals at a high level, hold regional competitions and successfully compete with leading professional institutions", said Alexey Nazarov, Director of UCTC.

Every year, the competence "Repair of technological equipment of chemical industries" is becoming more popular. This year, representatives of 5 educational institutions from Gubakha, Perm, Berezniki and Solikamsk took part in the competition.

"This year, the geography of participants has expanded significantly. We are very happy about this, good competition is always great", said Natalia Belova, UCTC teacher and championship expert.

The competitive part of the competence included 4 modules. The guys showed their skills in pump repair, alignment, valve repair and drawing. Metafrax specialists have been acting as experts for several years now. This time, the competition was evaluated by employees of the repair production Sergey Zuev, Denis Vidyakin, Nikita Kukshinov and the administrator of Metafrax-Inform LLC Dmitry Pantyukhin. Alexey Zabaev, Head of the Production department for maintenance and repair of equipment in technological workshops (POROTS) of JSC Metafrax Chemicals, has been the main expert of the competence for the third year.

"It is always comfortable to work with Metafrax specialists. It is nice to see our graduates among them, who are successfully working in the company today. Experts approach judging and evaluation strictly, but always fairly," Natalia Belova added. "We thank all our experts for their invaluable help".

Vyacheslav Volodin, a student of UCTC, became the leader of the competence "Repair of technological equipment of chemical industries". Dmitry Sidorov, a student of the Berezniki Technical School, took the second place, and Andrey Biryukov, a student of the Perm Chemical Technology College, took the third place.

UCTC students demonstrated a high level of training at other venues of the championship. Matvey Nikonenko became the third in the competence of "Industrial mechanics and installation" in Berezniki. UCTC students Igor Merenkov, Victoria Klepikova and Ksenia Silikhina went to Solikamsk to participate in the competence of the "Chemical Technology Operator". Elena Semenova, microbiologist engineer of the Industrial Wastewater department of Metafrax Chemicals, traditionally acted as an expert in this competence. As a result, Igor Merenkov became the second, Victoria and Ksenia lagged behind the bronze medalist by only 2 and 4 points, respectively. Chemical analysis laboratory technicians showed high competition. UCTC student Anastasia Rogova eventually became the fifth, her difference with the result of the bronze medalist was only 4 points. Ksenia Pavlova, a participant in the junior competence "Laboratory Chemical Analysis", a student of school No. 15, competed with representatives of Perm schools and gymnasiums. Ksenia did not get into the top three winners, but she showed herself worthily at the championship.
