The further training course “Installation and maintenance of cold storage room systems” was successfully conducted from November 13th to 15th 2023 at the College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI). According to the series of air conditioning training (4 levels), the aim of this course was to develop teachers’ capacity on cold storage room systems for 09 VCMI key teachers who are currently teaching in the German standard oriented occupation “Mechanics for Sanitary, Heating and Climate Technology” (SHK) at VCMI. The trainer was Mr Vu Van Tuyen, the Vice Dean of Electrics – Electronics Faculty at VCMI, who took part in various training courses organised by GIZ and Daikin Vietnam. With accumulated experience, he developed didactic concepts and multiplied what he has been trained to implement training for other teachers at VCMI.
During this training course, participants were provided with knowledge and skills on cold storage room technology including standard installation, maintenance, and repair according to technical requirements. They had opportunities to practice professional measuring and testing tools and devices to: construct and install cold storage rooms; establish connections between electrical systems and internet to control cold storage room operations; install indoor and outdoor units; install copper pipes and discharge water pipes; test run and check the system’s operability. The finished product will be used as a lecture model for students in future.
“By participating directly in the installation process, I have learned a lot of new knowledge and technical skills about cold storage rooms. After the course, I am confident to guide and train students in the future” – Ms Pham Thi Duan, one of the participants, expressed her thoughts after the 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).
