LILAMA 2 is ready to train engineers and trainers on industry applied CNC programming and machine operation! 

LILAMA 2 International Technology College upscaled its present training offer with industry applied training courses on Fundamental and Advanced DIN/ISO Programming – CNC Milling and CNC Turning, Programming of Turning and Milling Machines with High-Level Languages and Advanced Machine Integrated Measuring of Tools and Workpieces on CNC Turning and Milling Machines.   

The further training courses are part of the new training module on Advanced DIN/ISO Programming of CNC-Machines – Turning and Milling. The 320-hour module was developed jointly between LILAMA 2 TVET experts and the Bildungswerk der Niedersächsischen Wirtschaft – a SIEMENS training partner institute in Hannover, Germany. LILAMA 2 offers the module to college graduates as higher qualification – beyond initial training. It is also attractive for industry technicians, engineers, and in-company trainers as further training opportunity in Industry 4.0 applied CNC programming and operation techniques.  

Mr Hartmut Stein, expert in CNC programming and machine operation, qualified more than 51 vocational teachers of LILAMA 2 and of ten partner colleges as Trainers of Trainers for industry applied programming with SINUMERIK 840D in 2021. The called Master Trainers of LILAMA 2 multiplied their newly gained technical and didactical competencies and trained technical teachers of 18 educational institutes and in-company trainers and engineers of nine manufacturing companies in Viet Nam (BECAMEX IDC, Martech Boiler, Schaeffler, Vietnam Metal Hardware, Austal Vietnam, ISHISEI Vietnam, Appro Engineering, TOP Solutions, Jinhong Vietnam).  

Mr Nguyen Binh Tuat from Apro Engineering explained that in LILAMA 2 applies the same modern CNC technology for vocational training as the industry applies for manufacturing. “We as technicians and engineers from the industry are very interested in the training courses on industry applied programming with SINUMERIK and CNC machine operation. The training gives us the chance for a closer cooperation with LILAMA 2 and we are considering asking LILAMA 2 to provide more trainings to improve the knowledge and skills of our technicians in this field.”   

All in all, 80 teachers, in-company trainers, and engineers, of which seven are women, participated in the training measures on Advanced DIN/ISO Programming of CNC-Machines – Turning and Milling and received a certificate on training completion. 

The practice-oriented training courses were conducted in the frame of the Development Partnership with the Private Sector (DPP) Vocational Training for Smart Manufacturing in Machine Tools. The DPP is implemented jointly by the cooperation partners Siemens Limited Company Vietnam, LILAMA 2 International Technology College and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH (represented by the Programme Reform of TVET in Vietnam) and supported by the programme of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
