From 14 to 23 October 2017, the training course on Electro-Hydraulics and Proportional Hydraulics Controls was successfully conducted at LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2). Fourteen teachers and technicians from Viglacera Ceramics Company and TVET partner institutes of Vocational College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI), Ho Chi Minh Vocational College of Technology (HVCT) and LILAMA 2 attended the course.
Under the guidance of Mr Frank Schulze, International Short-term Expert and Mr Kieu Tan Thoi as well as Mr Le Van Hung, both LILAMA 2 teaching staff, the participants learnt (i) to develop the work steps plan for specific hydraulics controls application, (ii) to mount, install, commission, test and document applied electro-hydraulics and proportional hydraulics control systems with laboratory and industrial components, (iii) to carry out systematic trouble-shooting in hydraulic controls, (iv) to describe, demonstrate and observe safety regulations, and (v) to prepare a training unit in the Layer-2 Workshop (classified according to the 3-Layer Workshop Concept) which includes information gathering, planning, implementing, function and safety checking, evaluation and documentation.
At the end of the training course, every participant was finally assessed according to German Standard criteria. After completion of this training course the participants are expected to conduct practice-oriented electro-hydraulics and proportional hydraulics controls training for their trainees and to utilise the hydraulics tools and equipment effectively. The teachers and technicians are also asked to undertake further multiplication measures for their fellow colleagues at their institute/ company
The training course was held within the field of activity “Support of Centres of Excellence for TVET” as part of the Vietnamese-German Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam. The programme is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
