“Basic Air-conditioning” training course for teachers at Vocational College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI)

The training course “Basic air-conditioning” was successfully conducted from May 31st to June 04th 2022 at the Vocational College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI). The target of the course was to develop teachers’ capacity and equip basic knowledge of air-conditioning technology for 09 VCMI teachers who will be teaching in the German standard oriented occupation “Mechanics for Sanitary, Heating and Climate Technology” at VCMI. The master trainer was Mr Vu Van Tuyen, Vice Dean of Electrical-Electronics Faculty at VCMI, who took part in various training courses implemented by Mr Ruben Ziehler, GIZ Development Advisor. He developed didactic concepts and multiplied what he has been trained to implement the training for other teachers at VCMI.

During this course, participants were provided with knowledge and skills on air-conditioning technology including RoomAir standard installation, maintenance and repair. They also had opportunities to practice the installation of air-conditioning system, to use tools, testing and measuring devices and to practice and analyze the process of air leakage test, recovering and recycling refrigerant. Besides, the teachers have developed their own lesson plan for each technical process related to air conditioning installation, maintenance, and repair. Those lessons would be applied in the occupation “Mechanics for Sanitary, Heating and Climate Technology” in upcoming time. Furthermore, all teachers participated in the actual maintaining and repairing process of the air-conditioning system at the college, which included measuring, analyzing, evaluating and handling real-life problems.

In my opinion, the arrangement and content of the training course was really good and my installation skill and ability to deal with basic situations were significantly improved. We could now implement the system installation, measure main parameters for checking and analyzing the faults, malfunction and air leakage. Especially, the knowledge of this course is very helpful to develop lessons for our occupation “Mechanics for Sanitary, Heating, and Climate Technology” in the future.” – Mr Pham Van Son, Dean of Mechanic Faculty, one of the participants, highly appreciated the training course.

This training course was held within the component “Supporting High-Quality TVET Institutes” as part of the Vietnamese-German “Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam”. The programme is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) together with the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA).
