The Labour Ministry is planning to have up to 5,000 workers armed with high-tech skills for the internet of things (IoT) industry by next year.

Tawat Benchatikul, director general of the ministry’s Department of Skill Development, said Deputy Labour Surachai Trakulthong visited Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) labour management centre and the human resource development institute in Chonburi to formulate a concrete action plan for the country’s workforce, including labour procurement, skill development, labour welfare, occupational safety and social security.

Surachai instructed the department to work on upgrading workers’ skills, especially by adopting the latest technology and innovation to boost productivity and create more opportunities for EEC’s 10 target industries to build the confidence investors. 

Tawat said this year, his department has been working under a workforce development plan designed to boost the skills of 6,400 workers this year and 5,440 in 2021. 

Five courses lasting 30 hours each are up for grabs in October and November, namely two related to three-dimensional measuring tools, one on SolidWorks software, one on the GxWork3 software designed by Mitsubishi and one on handling and controlling robotics. 

Meanwhile, the Office of Skill Development in Chachoengsao is offering courses on IoT, automation, robotics and mechatronics, which are open to the general public, new graduates, formal workers and unemployed people with basic skills. Trainees will be given theory and practical lessons to prepare them for employment.
