Dong Nai (VNA) – The Lilama 2 Vocational College in Long Thanh district, the southern province of Dong Nai has developed two occupational standards meeting the requirements of Germany.

Tilo Jaensch, Director of the Vocational Training Department under Germany’s Potsdam Commerce Chamber granted the certificates to the college on September 29.

The two standards on construction mechanics and industrial electronics will be applied at the college from October 2016 and in vocational training institutions nationwide in the following years.

Director of the college Le Van Hien said the two standards were developed in accordance with German criteria, which are adaptable to the Vietnamese market.

It took two years to compile the sets with the participation of German experts and 20 domestic firms, he said.

To serve the application of these standards, the college has sent 40 trainers to Germany for capacity enhancement. Besides, German experts will directly join the teaching.

The school has workshops equipped with state-of-the-art machines worth multi-million EUR funded by the German Government.

Since 2010, Lilama 2 Vocational College has been selected to pilot the programme on renovating vocational training in Vietnam.-VNA
