The Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Sri Lanka (AHK Sri Lanka) in cooperation with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH coordinated for the first time in Sri Lanka the AdA International Basic – Train-the-Trainers course, which was conducted by ISO certified trainer Edwin Lemke recently. This marks another milestone in the companies´ endeavours towards strengthening the vocational education sector in Sri Lanka.

The Train-The-Trainer Course, or ‘AdA International – Basic’, is the highest international certification for apprenticeship in-company trainers accredited by the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK).

The workshop was designed for in-house trainers, mentors and individuals interested in obtaining a certified qualification as in-house/company trainer. The course is an effective preparation to train apprentices and included topics, such as teaching methods for breaking down complex tasks, learning styles and apprenticeship structure.

Employees from companies, such as Dimo, Nikini, Kramski, Ceylon Oxygen, Hellmann MAS, Leema, CINEC and CGTTI took part. Future courses and follow-ups will also be conducted.

The AdA-International is mandatory for companies that wish to train apprentices abroad according to the German standard. Dual vocational training is the prime factor for German companies to secure a strategic and leading position in the global market. Well trained in-house trainers are a key to success to inspire apprentices and to increase efficiency in a sustainable way.

This AdA (Train-the-Trainer) course is primarily tailored for in-house trainer qualification, that is to train and produce competent and quality trainers.
