Samsung will convene the third Iranian Electrical Technicians Olympiad in collaboration with Iran Technical and Vocational Training Organization from Dec.15-22.

Samsung has set up an engineering academy in Iran and some 7,200 youth have been trained at the center of which 1,400 have entered the job market after receiving a certificate of skill from Samsung.

The competition would focus on the repair of cellphones, tablets, home appliances, air-conditioning units and multimedia devices.

The South Korean electronics company’s local sales manager, Farhad Hejrat, told a press briefing, “The event seeks to introduce skilled Iranian technicians to employers,” the Financial Tribune reporter said.

For participating in the event, those eligible can register with the portal for free. Samsung will give 30 Azadi gold coins to each of the top three contestants — each Azadi gold costs $320.

Close to 1,700 people participated in the previous round of the competition in Jan. 2016.

Deputy research director of TVTO, Hamidreza Sabetnejad, is of the opinion that such events provide young technicians with a chance to polish their skills and prove their mettle.
