Vocational training for Success

date_range2017-12-06

Dao Chi Vinh was born in a small house where his family and his grandmother live together. His father is a smith; the job is, however, quite unstable. His mother was a school’s janitor and her income was also low. Thus, they could not afford the school fees for both Vinh and his sister. Vinh, therefore, had to drop out of school when he hadn’t finished secondary school. His sister, Quyen, continued her education but still had to quit at the 8th grade.

Although Vinh’s home is pretty near Thang Long vocational and English school, it was not until his sister who was studying at the school’s Hairdressing class mentioned it to him that Vinh knew about SCC and Thang Long. Because of being busy all day with his security guard job, he didn’t have the chance to learn about the information and available opportunities. At the time, SCC has been expanding more vocational courses for disadvantaged young people; and as a result Vinh had the opportunity to choose his favorite career. There is a demand for human resources in the refrigeration electrical field. And as it’s also promisingly a well paying career, Vinh decided to pursue this new career path.

During the course, Vinh attended all of the theoretical lectures and lab sessions, as well as actively looked for internship opportunities at local refrigeration electrical shops. As a result, after 5 months of training, he attained the Technician certificate level 3/7. Vinh confidently applied to Benhviendienlanh.com Company and became an official employee.

“When I first started the job, I had to face with lots of pressure but I was determined in pursuing this career so no matter how difficult it gets I still have to try. I definitely won’t give up”, Vinh shared. Currently, Vinh has become an experienced technician with a stable income. Because Vinh is very quick-witted and ambitious, he has gained the trust and sympathy from the customers. More and more customers want to work with him. It’s truly a successful first step for the young man.

On August 8th, Vinh celebrated his wedding and began his own family life. We at SCC are very happy at this mature step in life and his becoming the family’s bread winner.  As he now has a stable home and is ready to build his career, Vinh also dreams to save enough money to open his own shop. With his youth and hard working spirit, he sure will achieve more than that.

We wish all his dreams soon become true.
