Keeping calm and composed is one of the most important mantras for Eljer Chua and Clarence Lim when they train for WorldSkills and participate in competitions. Other than learning mechanical assembly, programming and troubleshooting skills, the duo has also undergone peak performance training sessions that taught them how to react when something goes wrong.

“We’ve come to realise the importance of staying calm and composed during the actual competition. We were taught how to focus on solving the problem instead of being shocked and panicky. I believe these skills will also benefit us when we start our working lives,” shared Eljer.
