DTAM Training Methodology and Curriculum

DTAM Training Methodology and Curriculum supports VET providers, learners and SMEs in the digitalisation of manufacturing processes and create broader strategies for knowledge growth and curricular development. 

At educational level, VET staff can thoroughly understand and be prepared to teach the flexible, innovative DTAM curriculum (including the innovative use of local or remote IoT labs) in IVET and CVET courses.

DTAM Training Course

The DTAM Training Course forms the core of the DTAM Curriculum and the project overall. To achieve maximum impact and effectiveness, the course is based on the Digital Transformation Skills Index , with special intent to aid medium level technicians  working in ICT enabled AMT. 

It is envisaged that the training course consists of approximately 25 training units on digital and transversal skills relevant for IT and OT technicians in AM environments that contribute to the major areas of Industry 4.0 and the foreseen sections of Big Data, Machine Learning, Sensors and Cybersecurity.


DTAM IoT Hub provides access to a developed IoT digital ecosystem with an aim to build on the e-learning experience. Remote learners with fewer resources have the opportunity to access quality technology and equipment via the e-learning platform. Users are connected directly to the project network of IoT labs upon registration and are encouraged in the DTAM Methodology to work together with other European students on specific digital challenges in the AM field. 


Pilot Testing

Piloting partners created a national pilot plan detailing how curriculum in IVET and CVET courses is individually offered and unfolded. The pilot training activities were then implemented during the 2022-2023 semester in our partnering countries i.e. Spain, Greece, Italy and the Netherlands. Needless to say, it was a quite thrilling experience to see our students increase their skills and competences and get the chance to practice what they’ve learned. 

The pilot training results together with the official Report on the Impact of the Curriculum on IVET and CVET learners and companies, are made publicly.

Here’s one of our favourite stories about how we did with this challenging pilot training activity.
