The further training course “Commissioning of wastewater treatment, solar and ventilation systems” was successfully conducted from September 12th to 16th 2022 at the College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI). The target of the course was to develop teachers’ capacity, knowledge and skills on commissioning of training equipment for 08 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 Wolfgang Hameister, a technical expert of G.U.N.T. Gerätebau GmbH company (Germany).
During this course, participants were trained on the commissioning of training equipment and systems in the following fields: drinking water, domestic water installation; wastewater piping; heating domestic water by solar energy; ventilation and air conditioning system. Trainees were also trained not only on operational safety but also regular maintenance and troubleshooting during operation. The knowledge and skills obtained will be very fruitful in the teaching activities for the students in the future.
“Personally, I think this course was successful and useful for teachers who will be teaching in the new occupation. The course was practical and met our demands” – Mr Pham Van Son, the Dean of Mechanics Faculty, provided feedback on the course.
Mr Vu Van Tuyen, Vice Dean of Electrics – Electronics Faculty also gave his opinion, “The master trainer provided training in details about the components, functions and operational principals of systems, analysing operational data and results in order to help the participants master the potential problems during operation. Other teachers also 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).
