Continuing the series of activities to support the multiplication of the German Standard-oriented Training Programme for Mechatronics and Industrial Electronics Occupation, the Programme Reform of TVET in Vietnam (TVET Programme) has cooperated with LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2) to organize training course on PLC Programming on GRAFCET flatform for core teachers from Ninh Thuan Vocational College, Long An College, An Giang Vocational College, Hue Industrial College and Bac Ninh College of Industry from July 18, 2022 to July 28, 2022 (10 days).
Similar to the earlier further training course “Hydraulic system operation and control“, the purpose of this training was to enhance the fundamental and advanced knowledge of the core teachers, providing them with extensive practical skills related to PLC programming.
The training course was conducted under the coordination of the two multipliers from LILAMA 2, Mr Le Van Hung and Mr Kieu Tan Thoi. Throughout the course, the core teachers of the partner colleges shared their expertise and practical guidance according to the following content:
– Analyzing the mechatronic systems using Grafcet method
– Reading electrical and mechanical drawings
– Assembling, programming, and operating MPS systems such as:
+ Supply Station
+ Test Station
+ Machining Station
+ Gripping Station
+ Sorting Station
After taking the course, the teachers were competent in using the GRAFCET platform for assembling, programming and operating the mechatronic system. Mr. Dinh Trung Trong, a teacher from Hue Industrial College, shared his thoughts: “I used only to write PLC programmes in the main OB programme; now I can write in FB and FC subroutines, the main programme can be used for monitoring. This is very effective in the process of programming massive control systems.”
The training 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).
