Labour Ministry opens automation center


Bangkok – The Ministry of Labour has announced the establishment of a human resources development center on automation and robots at the Institute for Skills Development 3, located in Chonburi.

The new center will enhance workers’ skills in modern technologies and create trainers on automation systems. The center has so far provided training to some 6,000 workers in areas such as industrial robot control, and automation coding.

The Department of Skills Development’s Director General, Suchat Pornchaiwiseskul, said more training centers will be opened in Rayong, Chachoengsao, and Samut Prakan, which will allow the private sector to engage with the centers’ management and help develop skill specific training programs.

The enhancement of workers’ ability to oversee automation and robots will support the growth of the technology industry and Industry 4.0 model, creating confidence among Thai and international investors.
