The further training course to instruct teachers at the College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI) on Using Sanitary technology equipment was conducted from November 17 to November 19, 2020. This was the technical further training course conducted by Mr Ruben Ziehler, Development Advisor at VCMI of the Programme “Reform of TVET in Vietnam” – GIZ. Participants of the training course were ten teachers who will directly deliver the training for the new occupation “Mechanics for Sanitary, Heating and Climate Technology” at the College.
During this training, the participants were provided with advanced knowledge and skills on the operation and commissioning of sewage and drinking water systems with modern equipment and technology. Besides, participants also developed teaching materials to adapt to the provided laboratory equipment. The teaching materials will be used in the German standard oriented occupation “Mechanics for Sanitary, Heating and Climate Technology”, which has been piloted at VCMI and its partner companies starting from this school year.
Ms Dinh Thi Cuc, a teacher of Mechanics Faculty, shared her opinion: “After completing this further training course, we – as teachers – have come to understand the operation and the challenges when operating the new equipment. With the support from the Development Advisor, Mr Ruben Ziehler, we developed the theoretical instructions and practical exercises, which will be used as teaching materials later.”
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).
