Since the collaboration of ICDL Asia and Siemens PLM Software company on the ICDL 3D Design module, this module has gained much interest in the Chinese market.
ICDL Asia cooperated with the local authorities to ensure the mandarin learning materials and certification tests are in line with the syllabus requirements. The module has been included in the 2019 Nanjing Skills Competition, which is organized by Nanjing Education Bureau for the vocational education institutes, to test the students’ creativity and innovation. Going forward, it will be introduced to the University students in Nanjing as well.
In preparation to roll out the module successfully, Siemens PLM in Shanghai sent their engineers to Nanjing to train the first batch of elite teachers on 10 January 2019 with ICDL Test Centre, AMI Education Technology. This is in preparation for an upcoming, larger scale of the teachers’ training organized by Nanjing Education Bureau in March 2019.
The teachers who participated in the Train-the-Trainer session learned about the content on ICDL 3D design module, using of Siemens Solid Edge design software with synchronous technology to teach, and learned how to design a futuristic high-speed rail transport with the design software, laying the strong foundation for the competition.
