Tradiebot will take part in a joint Australian and Vietnam government skills conference held in Vietnam later this month. Tradiebot will be one of a handful of companies from across the world who will take part in planning sessions on skills and training.
The programme, organised by the Australian Government, AusCham Vietnam, Austrade and WorldSkills Australia, is designed to tackle the need for new programmes and technologies used in early training and skill development of the current workforce.
The event will be hosted across two cities, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, featuring government representatives, education providers and an array of workshops, conferences, expert panels and demonstrations of new technologies in areas such as virtual reality (VR) platforms, where Tradiebot will showcase its SprayVIS product.
Tradiebot says that SprayVIS is the most technologically advanced, cost effective and compact virtual reality spray painting simulator on the market and provides a new perspective in developing training using virtual environments. The solution comes with three user modes – Expo, Training as the main feature, and Leaner which is a light version of the software offered to schools as a platform to provide a direct connection to industry and stimulate interest in trades.
Tradiebot is in the final stages of packaging its ReadyTradeGO programme, which the company thinks could reach every school and home of students that have an interest in a career path such as spray painting or vehicle repair. The company also feels it could be used with new smart devices such as VR headsets.
Tradiebot said its CEO, Mario Dimovski, will also be presenting and taking part in talks with officials from both governments and training providers about the need to introduce new digital solutions for training and information delivery to the vehicle industry, and how to better connect with the future workforce via the education network.
“We look forward to contributing in this programme with the Australian and Vietnam governments and the delegates from the training and education sectors,” said Dimovski. “Our software solutions offer a new perspective in generating interest for the younger generation using these new digital tools that they can relate to, be it either via a mobile phone, smart tablet or a VR gaming headset. These are everyday devices that the younger generation are now growing up around.
“We aim to promote trades as a pathway to a secure and prospective career choice as the need to repair vehicles increases, though the flow of new apprentices is at a record low around the world. With technology in cars and repair methods becoming more complex, it is just as crucial to ensure that the technicians of today are equipped with the knowledge and understanding on how to carry out safer repairs and continually be upskilled on the ever-changing repair industry.”
