A travel guide for overseas candidates to Vung Tau

Updated: Feb 25, 2019

The first time when we received 2 Singapore candidates to attend the training course and take the assessment to get the IECEx CoPC certificates, we didn’t know that more candidates from Singapore, Malaysia, India and even the UK would travel to Vung Tau and choose Trainor Vietnam as their ExCB to take the certification. We were so happy that overseas candidates loved our services and enjoyed their break time in one of ideal destinations in the Southern Vietnam.

This year, we look forward to welcoming more candidates from overseas and would like to give you a brief guide for a convenient trip to our location in Vung Tau, Vietnam:
