Young Welders' Competitions

In the Galeria, two different competitions will take place for the best up-and-coming welders from home and abroad at SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2021. Germany’s 14th DVS competition “Jugend schweißt” [Young welders] forms the opening act, in which the search is for Germany’s most talented up-and-coming welders. This will be followed by the international competition.

All competition tasks are based on the requirements for the European and internationally recognised welder’s examination in accordancewith DIN EN ISO 9606-1.

Join the excitement when the most talented up-and-coming young welders from across Germany and abroad compete with one another under the eyes of an expert public. You can look forward to plenty of fun, international contacts and feeling the thrill of the three competitions.


The DVS "Young Welders" Competition consists of three stages until the four nationwide victors have been decided in the following disciplines:

  • Gas Welding
  • Manual Metal Arc Welding
  • Metal Active Gas Welding
  • Tungsten Inert Gas Welding


In the "International Competition", there will once more be a brisk onrush at the welders' cabins at SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN. Young welders from all over the world will be able to take part in this event and gauge themselves against each other.
