Notes relating to the use of the training material (training curriculum) in initial vocational training
The solutions offered for initial vocational training are designed to complement the training programs available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, and Spain. They comprise training documents (training material) and corresponding SIMATIC trainer packages and didactic models from our partner companies.
The training material and the corresponding solutions are designed for the following professions:
Germany - Industrial electronics technicians, power electronics technicians, mechatronics technicians, industrial mechanics technicians
Switzerland - Polymechanics technicians, electrical filters, automation technicians
France - Bac professionnel série EIE, MSMA, Bac technique série MAI, MI, Electrotechnique
Italy - Istituti Professionali, Operatore elettrico, Operatore meccanico, Tecnico dei sistemi energetici, Tecnico dell'industria meccanica, Istituti Tecnici, Perito elettrotecncio, Perito elettronico, Perito meccanico, Ingegnere elettronico, Ingegnere meccanico, Ingegnere elettrotecnico.
...and all those who encounter automation during their apprenticeships.
Three areas of qualification
The overview below shows the areas of qualification acquisition together with general qualification requirements.
The requirements of system organizers who are responsible for these technologies are becoming more complex and more extensive. In addition to the traditional thinking in products, a functional way of thinking, a thinking in systems and relationships, is becoming more prominent. In professional reality, the area of user qualification is strongly job-related. To promote thinking in systems and in view of a flexible utilization, automation tasks in education should be handled at an integrated level.
The training material was jointly created with teachers at vocational schools and is designed for the advanced education of trainers in the field of initial professional education as well as education for the metal and electrical professions. The material is aligned to the curriculum and covers current basic trends in automation technology:
Integrated configuration, programming, and communication in automation solutions
Programming based on IEC 61131-1
Industrial field bus technology
