Sergei Krikalev

Cosmonaut, aviation athlete, Master of Sport International Class (aerobatics), Hero of the Soviet Union, Hero of the Russian Federation

Accumulated about 803 days in space over the course of six spaceflights and performed eight space walks.

The work of a cosmonaut is closely related to vocational occupations. It was actually considered as one before because you have to control a spacecraft and maintain its systems and work. As a cosmonaut, you should know how to work with your hands at the same time as using your head. This is exactly what young professionals will do while getting ready and competing at WorldSkills Kazan 2019.
