Congratulation to metal technology teachers of Dong Nai’s Centres of Excellence (CoE) for passing a trial examination for Metal Cutting-CNC Technicians
13 key teachers of LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2) and Vocational College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI) took part in a 172-hour further training course which included a trial examination in metal cutting-CNC from 4 to 28 July 2018.
The German trainer Mr Hartmut Stein, a well experienced expert in CNC-manufacturing, elaborated: “It has become obvious that the key teachers could build upon a solid foundation, on competencies that they have acquired during the previous metal cutting training courses as part of a comprehensive further training concept for TVET teachers and trainers in the region.”
“The participants deepened and consolidated their knowledge and skills in manufacturing of semi-complex components and sub-assemblies by CNC-turning and CNC-milling machine tools during the four weeks of training. Furthermore, all teachers successfully passed a trial-examination for Metal Cutting-CNC Technicians proving their occupational competence”, Mr Hartmut explained. The two-day trial-examination has been conducted as a simulation oriented on the quality requirements and examination regulations of the German final examination part 1 for skilled workers at the end of the further training course.
In a next step, the newly acquired competencies of LILAMA 2 and VCMI teaching staff will be further developed and consolidated by passing through training courses by international experts on manufacturing components and sub-assemblies by CNC machine tools such as 5-axis milling centre and turning with driven tools (C+Y axis).
This activity is held within the component “Support for Centres of Excellence for TVET” 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).
“The study tour provided us with deep insights into new requirements for vocational education and training resulting from digitalisation and industry 4.0. These insights form a basis for taking next steps on further training for our teaching and management staff as well as adaptation of the training programme for the relevant occupations to meet those requirements” said Mr Nguyen Khanh Cuong – Rector of LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2) at the closing event of “the digitalization and industry 4.0 - TVET study tour” which took place from 06 to 16 October 2018 in Germany.
From 6 August to 8 September 2018, twelve participants including Electrics-Electronics teachers from Vocational College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI), Ninh Thuan Vocational College and potential in-company trainers attended a five-week training course for the occupation “Electronics technician for Energy and Building Technology” at the Hessen State Institute for Advanced Technical Training (HLFT), Germany. “With intensive practical training at HLFT and fact-finding visits to enterprises, this further training course helps us improve not only practical skills and knowledge related to the new occupation, but also how to transfer the acquired skills and knowledge to our trainees in the most effective way”, said Mr Duong Canh Toan, Head of Electrics-Electronics Department from VCMI.
