Projects QualiTec German Ltd.: a well-experienced team
The instructors and teachers of QualiTec German Ltd. are well-experienced experts from practice and work in close contact to companies in industry and skilled crafts. They all come from industry and trades and know how to train in practice for the benefit of practice. They can teach in English, but are also used to work with interpreters (e.g. Arabian, Chinese, Thai etc.). That the training facilities of QualiTec German Ltd. are a "centre of excellence" in many technical fields has been approved meanwhile by the certification according to the international quality standards ISO 9001 : 2000, a certificate that we are proud of.
Main emphasis in international activities is put on:
- face-to-face tutorials in Germany or abroad
- full service
- advice focused on the requirements of the customer
- individual development of training measures on demand
- tailor-made conception, organisation and performance of training measures
- customer-focused support in all problems and demands of the participants during the training
- looking after the participants also outside the training
- report to the customer
- examinations and certification comparable to German standards (e.g. master craftsman examination)
- support service abroad after the training (if required), e.g. visits of short term experts
Projects are performed world wide. Current cooperations with Trinidad & Tobago, Malaysia and Taiwan.
Priority objective in the partnership with the Camara de Comercio, Industria, Servicios y Turismo de Iquique, Chile, was to strengthen the small and medium-sized enterprises in the north of Chile by an improved and enlarged offer of consultancy and vocational training. Partner in the project that started in 1999 and ended in 2007 has been the German SEQUA.
Trinidad & Tobago
Within the twinning project with the MIC in Trinidad & Tobago, human resource management trainings as well as master craftsman trainings were tailor-made developed and performed in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and in building trades. This programm which started in 1994 has been carried out in co-operation with the ICON Institute. In 2009 and 2010, the twinning project was continued with a training in mechatronics. In 2013, a training in Efficient Energy Management and Solar Technology was performed in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.
The European programme ECCP was used from 2003 to 2006 to develop and perform practical training in the field of solar energy. Partners were the Solar Institute of the Aachen University of Applied Sciences, the Vocational Training Centre ZAWM Eupen in Belgium and The Energy and Resources Institute TERI in Bangalore, India.
On behalf of the GOPA Institute, vocational teachers from Beirut were inducted into the didactics of practical project-based and action-oriented training in the field of motorcar mechatronics.
The Aachen Chamber of Skilled Crafts and Trades together with five other training providers from all over Germany has formed a consortium and initiated a pilot project in which cooperations with Vietnamese training providers should be built up. The consortium wanted to develop and test a market entry strategy with the objective to implement practical vocational training ("Made in Germany") in Vietnam.
This pilot project was supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. It started in the beginning of 2009 and ended in 2012.
In 2013, the Renewables Academy RENAC, Berlin, asked the QualiTec German Limited to perform a training in Solar Technologies for the Selangor Human Resource Development Center SHRDC, Kuala Lumpur/Malaysia. A QualiTec expert in Solar Technologies was sent to Kuala Lumpur and performed a practice-oriented training in photovoltaics.
DEinternational Taiwan Ltd. commissioned the QualiTec German Limited to evaluate the training offer of the Central Vocational Training Center (CTC), Taichung, Taiwan, in the field of metal engineering. Three QualiTec experts were sent to Taichung to evaluate the workshops, equipment, curricula and trainer qualifications in the field of metal engineering and CNC. They also presented the Dual System of initial vocational training of Germany and performed training modules “made in Germany”.
In 2013, a confederation of training centres from all over Malaysia under the leadership of the Selangor Human Resource Development Center SHRDC, Kuala Lumpur, contacted the ICON-Institute to develop a training in mechatronics. The ICON-Institute commissioned the QualiTec German Limited to develop and perform a tailor-made training of Malaysian instructors in the field of mechatronics. This train-the-trainer course was partially held in Kuala Lumpur and partially in Aachen. It ended in December 2013. The cooperation will be continued.
In 2015, the Federation of Malaysian Skills Development Centers placed again the order to the QualiTec German Limited to train instructors of the training centers of the Federation. One group was trained in mechatronics, another group in precision machining. Both trainings were started in Malaysia and then continued in the BGE Aachen. All in all, 27 participants passed a practical and theoretical exam.
In 2016, the Federation of Malaysian Skills Development Centers sent again to groups of instructors of the training centers of the Federation to get an advanced training in training centers of the Aachen Chamber of Skilled Crafts and Trades. In the BGE, 10 instructors were trained in the field of electrical engineering, in th TraCK Dueren, 12 instructors were trained in the automotive sector. Both groups participated in a preparation course in Malaysia, were then trained for five weeks in Germany and finally all passed a practical and theoretical exam.
In the beginning of 2017, 18 lecturers of the Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi, Thailand, came to the BGE of the Aachen Chamber of Skilled Crafts and Trades for an advanced training over 10 weeks in the field of mechatronics. They want to enforce the industrial development in Thailand by acquiring practical skills which they later want to transfer to their students in Thailand.
The reputation of vocational trqaining "made in Germany" in Thailand is excellent, while vocational training in Thailand is rather underrepresented.
It is the very first time in the long tradition of international projects of the Aachen Chamber of Skilled Crafts and Trades that a practical training is performed only for academics.
