WorldSkills competitions are world championships for apprentices and students in non-academic vocational education and training. The organization behind is WorldSkills International (WSI). Hand in hand with their members and partners, WorldSkills shares its mission to strengthen vocational education and training through skills competitions and thus raise economic prosperity.
Highly motivated young professionals do their utmost at skills competitions. They compete for gold, silver and bronze medals using components, stations or software from Festo Didactic - and have been doing so for three decades.
Modular Production System MPS
Already since 1991, the MPS has proven at national and international competitions that its concept, the stations and controls and the functions mapped in them, offer exactly what stands for automated production all over the world: The integration of mechanics, electrical engineering and information technology into mechatronics.
CP Lab Industry 4.0
In 2022, the new Skill #48 Industry 4.0 will have its premiere. Festo as GIP accompanies its introduction. With both the single and system workplace, Festo Didactic offers you a training system especially designed to prepare candidates for the challenges of the new skill Industry 4.0
EDS Water Management
In 2022, Water Technology is official skill for the second time. The EDS Water Management is a modular training system which represents the core processes of a water and wastewater treatment plant in the form of a water loop from the source to the wastewater treatment plant and back again.
Nacelle – Wind turbine Training System
Renewable Energy is a new skill at WorldSkills Shanghai 2022. Festo Didactic provides the Nacelle – Wind turbine Training System. It is a complete scaled-down version of commercial wind turbine nacelles, making it an excellent substitute for expensive real-life equipment. Space-efficient and affordable the machine fully interacts with users, thus enhancing the learning experience. It offers hands-on training for real-world operation, maintenance and troubleshooting situations.
Mechanical Drives Learning System
Industrial mechanics install, maintain, repair, and replace a vast array of mechanical equipment. The mechanical drives training system exposes students to the hardware, tools, and methods used by industrial mechanics to keep plants running. The Electric Drives/Pneumatic Drives learning systems provide skilled workers with the necessary skills for installing and maintaining systems.
Industrial control electricians plan, mount, install, program and service and repair electrical and electrotechnical parts, components and systems used in systems and industrial engineering. These could be alarm systems, electric doors, gates and lifts as well as industrial machinery and plants.
