In order to improve the training process for high skilled technicians of automotive vocational schools as well as contributing to the improvement of the quality of education and training and human resources development in Vietnam, since 2000, TMV has implemented the Toyota Technical Education Program (TTEP).
Initially, TTEP was carried out mainly to upgrade teaching facilities and modern teaching tools, aiming to support teaching and practicing as well as enhancing the training quality of general repairing jobs at the vocational center of the College of Transport in Hanoi, and the University of Technical Education in HCM city.
Since 2005, the program has been supplemented with a new curriculum of repairing body and painting (BP _TTEP) at Ho Chi Minh University of Technical Education and expanded to Hanoi University of Industry (in 2006), Cao Thang Technical College in Ho Chi Minh City (in 2008), Phu Lam Technical and Economics College in HCM city (in 2009). Up to now, the TTEP was extended to 5 universities and colleges nationwide.
