The start of the federal stage of the “Best concrete worker” professional skill contest was given in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on June 5. On the site "CEC-Invest" gathered masters of their work from different parts of the country. Representatives from the Rostov region, the Altai Territory and even the Crimea came to Kamchatka to test themselves and show what they are capable of.

“This competition is held to popularize working specialties and exchange experience, and let the strongest win,” Sergei Nazvanov, deputy head of the Investment and Entrepreneurship Agency of the Kamchatka Territory, said at the opening of the competition.

President of the Kamchatka Builders Union, member of the expert commission of the competition, Grigory Starov, noted that there is an acute shortage of personnel on the peninsula, as well as throughout Russia.

“Therefore, such contests and similar organizational events are given a very great importance. And participants can be proud of the fact that they participate in this competition, and the winner can say that he is the champion of Russia, ”explained Grigory Starov.  

Immediately after the opening ceremony, the masters of the construction industry sat at their desks. The competition began with a knowledge test. The theoretical part consisted of almost 30 questions. But, as the experts themselves say, for virtuosos of the concrete business - this is just a warm-up.

“We have questions in tests about how to properly connect the reinforcement, how to install it in the formwork, how to prepare the formwork itself, how it will look,” said Sergey Prudnikov, member of the contest expert committee, noting that the most serious task for the participants is platform for work.

Everyone coped with this, after which the concrete itself was poured on the territory provided for the KVTs-Invest competition. It took time for him to accept the form given by the master, so the competition lasted two days.

“The first day I failed, because it was acclimatization. Not everything worked out, of course. Always want the best. My whole life is overcoming - I set a goal and achieve it. For me this is the first competition, and I think that it is organized at the highest level, ”Nikolai Novikov, a participant from Rostov-on-Don, shared his impressions.

Another participant representing the Altai Territory, Alexander Prokudin, admitted that he was more afraid for the theory, but in the end everything went simple and interesting. In practice, as expected, it was easier.

On the second day, it was time for the experts to assess the quality of the assignments. With a tape measure, drawings and extensive experience in the construction industry, they appeared on the competition site. Excitingly and with trepidation, like a gift, the builders removed protective films from their works, presenting their works to the experts. Everything should be strictly according to the drawing. Retreat per centimeter - minus bal. However, the first negative assessment received weather. Throughout the competition, she then watered the participants in a light rain, then gave a break.

“The goals and objectives of the competition are to determine the best concrete worker and to attract young personnel to show the prestige of work and the fact that there are not enough specialists in the country now,” said Sergey Prudnikov, a member of the expert commission of the competition.

During the award ceremony, the welcoming address of the Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation Maxim Topilin was read out. After that, Marina Maslova, Director of the Department of Remuneration, Labor Relations and Social Partnership of the Ministry of Labor of Russia, announced the long-awaited results and awarded the winners of the competition. The winner of the first place Timofey Surkov, representing Kamchatka, received 300 thousand rubles, the concrete worker from Barnaul, Alexander Prokudin, who took second place, got 200 thousand rubles, another inhabitant of the peninsula - Nurali Mukhammadov - became the third and took 100 thousand rubles.

Most importantly, all the participants without exception have gained tremendous experience that will help them to become even better in their business.
