On January 5, 2021, the second Industry Advisory Board (IAB) Meeting for the two groups of occupations Mechanics and Electrics – Electronics took place at the International Technology College LILAMA 2 (LILAMA 2), Dong Nai Province. Managers and trainers of 15 partner companies, Rector board and teachers of LILAMA 2, GIZ’s experts and staff attended the meeting.
LILAMA 2 Mechanical teachers enhanced competences in maintenance and repair works for different types of mechanical machines
The further training in “Maintenance and repair works for Construction Mechanics teachers” for seven Mechanical teachers of LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2) was conducted from November 23 to November 27, 2020. This was the technical further training course conducted by LILAMA 2’s experienced mechanical trainer and organised at LILAMA 2. Seven pre-qualified participants for Construction Mechanics acquired improved knowledge in maintenance and repair works for different types of mechanical machines and they will soon receive the course completion certificates.
Mr Bui Quang Vinh, the course’s trainer stated: “Maintenance is not only about oil lubricating but also good periodic check-up procedure. Even new machines also need to be well-maintained to avoid any potential breakages. All participants were very active throughout the training course, even though the bigger machines needed more time and efforts to be inspected and repaired, therefore the maintenance work might not have been completed within one week."
“I have learnt basic knowledge about maintenance and repair practices from this training course. It was really helpful to learn about the maintenance for turning and milling machines as it is directly related to my work”, Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Huy, one of the participants, shared his thoughts.
Another participant, Mr Nguyen Ngoc Vinh, confirmed that the trainer helped explain the incidental and preventive maintenance so that the participants can apply to their daily tasks at work and at home.
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).
