The school continued to cooperate with German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) to provide training in industrial electricity and car technology in 2019. 32 recruited students have certificates of English at level B1. The curriculum meets German training requirements. Graduates will be granted German and Vietnamese certificates by the end of 2021, facilitating job-seekers in both Germany and Vietnam.

Under Australian and German training requirements, Nha Trang College of Technology has sent 13 teachers and the managing staff to Australia and Germany to a transfer program for 5 months before the training courses. Australian and German experts have also directly inspected and provided training facilities and equipment in accordance with standards. The training and graduation exam have been closely monitored. When completing the training program, students will be able to get corporate training at universities in collaborated countries, says Phan Van Lai, Chief of the Training Department of Nha Trang College of Technology.

In 2019, Nha Trang Tourism College also associated with GIZ to provide training in food processing and hotel reception for 32 students.

The training cooperation and transfer with international schools and organizations have proved efficient. Students’ skills have improved not only in foreign languages but also vocational expertise which are highly appreciated by enterprises. Through the collaboration, the school has developed training programs, facilitating learners' access to practical knowledge.

Developed countries’ engagement in training cooperation and transfer has attracted more learners as well as increased workforce quality. Therefore, it is encouraging to expand training cooperation on a large scale, according to Van Dinh Tri, Deputy Director of Khanh Hoa Department of Labor, War Invalids & Social Affairs.
