The further training in “CNC bending course for Construction Mechanics teachers” for seven Mechanical teachers of LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2) was conducted from December 17 – December 23, 2020. This was the technical further training course conducted by an experienced GIZ’s Development Advisor and organised at LILAMA 2. Seven pre-qualified participants acquired improved knowledge in operating CNC bending machine and they will soon receive the course completion certificates.
Mr Andreas Fischer, the course’s trainer stated: “The focus of this training course was on setting up, handling and maintaining the CNC bending machine. Since we had chosen the funnel grill project as the final product of the training, we also had the opportunity to include the other pieces of equipment we recently acquired (such as various spot welding machines, plasma cutting machine and the TIG welding machine) in our instructions and our work. Therefore, our participants are not only able to use a single new machine to work with their students, but also to implement the entire technological value chain of a project in their lessons.”
“I now got to know how to properly operate the CNC bending machine after the course. Students can also practice on the machine as in-class exercises. I also realised that practicing on CNC bending machince is very helpful to produce household items, such as a funnel grill. This product has sophisticated details which requires welding, cutting, grinding skill to be completed” – Mr Nguyen Hai Binh, one of the participants, shared his thoughts.
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).
