The purpose of this study is to explore the industry 4.0 affecting the training quality and student’s satisfaction who studying at Lac Hong University. The research result is a science evident for LHU managers to improve the training quality and student’s satisfaction. One of the most important tasks of 2015-2020 at LHU is to improve the quality of training to meet the needs of the society and to meet the demands of the fourth industrial revolution. The purpose of this study is to examine the industry 4.0 affecting training quality and its implications and how training quality influences student’s satisfaction. The researchers surveyed 400 students who are studying at LHU and answered 20 questions. The primary sources of data collected from July 2017 to March 2018 at LHU and simple random sampling technique. The Data analyzed Cronbach's Alpha and the exploratory factor analysis (EFA), which used for Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) technique and using partial least squares method. Student’s responses measured through an adapted questionnaire on a 5-point Likert scale: Conventions: 1: Completely disagree, 2: Disagree, 3: Normal; 4: Agree; 5: completely agree. Hard copy distributed among 7.000 students of LHU. In addition, the findings of the study have three factors (Human resource, training facility and technology capability) affecting tra
Training Quality, Country’s Economic, Social, LHU Development.
Nowadays, the world is experiencing unprecedented changes. The industry 4.0 continues to be a tremendous change. It affects all aspects of life. This revolution will deeply affect the global economy, society, including education and training. It poses urgent problems for education, considering education and training especially university education as the necessary preparation for the learner to enter life confidently. Besides, the universities need to equip all the skills necessary for students, not only for the present but also for the future jobs. This is a great opportunity for Vietnam to accelerate industrialization and modernization. The problem is that Vietnam is addressing low-level labor-productivity challenges in order to be ready for a new phase on the basis of industrial science 4.0. Moreover, the industry 4.0 is based on some main areas: Big Data, IOT, Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The industry 4.0 breaks the structure of almost every industry, foreshadowing the transformation of the entire production, management system and training. The industry 4.0 will be the foundation for a dramatic transition from a resource-based, low-cost to knowledge-based economy. This is increasing share of economic structure in comparison to traditional manufacturing and service industries. LHU solves the problem of quality in higher education is not simple; it touches the whole system and training process from A to Z. The researchers think that there are 3 important factors that are decisive: Human resources, training facility and technology capability for training quality and international integration capacity.
It can be seen that the human factor is always the leading factor, directly influencing the training process in the university. The human element refers not only to the teachers but also to the management staff. The success of a performance depends not only on the actors on stage. To serve a classroom teacher must be accompanied by a staff from the program, scheduling, preparation of facilities, teaching equipment. The professional level of the teacher, the professional capacity of the staff is critical. And the person is professional, work hard and good working conditions will affect the quality of training. Moreover, the material facilities have been invested quite a lot in laboratory equipment, electronic library, teaching facilities, but still not used effectively in training. Lacking of good models, job training, practice, vocational internship in the LHU or have good model but effective use is not high especially, the complexity of the training and education systems need to develop to meet the demands of the fourth industrial revolution necessitate interdisciplinary and collaboration as a precondition for innovation.
How do human resources, training facility and technology capability are sufficient to meet and how important international integration? This is a breakthrough and important to improve the quality of training is being implemented effectively at Lac Hong University. Above mentioned things, the researchers chose topic “Impacting the industry 4.0 on the training quality and student’s satisfaction at Lac Hong University” as a paper. This paper helps LHU managers who apply the research results for improving policy on the management of the training quality and education at LHU in the future
There are as many theories of training quality as there are writers. These different views of quality are often confusing and contradictory. For instance, (Abdullah, 2006) viewed training quality as a spectrum between two polar establishing acceptable criteria and standards of good performance. This definition focuses on performance-based and accepted criteria. Besides, the training quality of higher education has always been a top concern for many subjects whether or not they participate in the education process. In addition, (Benešová, 2017) showed that to the increasing number of learners, the decline in quality, the changing societal pressures and the competitive process make recruiters demand high quality education. Training quality is always a problem for governments and agencies, where education policy and educational research are planned. For many reasons, the quality of education has always been a major concern. According to (Abdullah, 2006) showed that the concept of quality is a relative concept. For each person, the concept of quality is different and so we often question the "quality of who". In each position, people perceive quality in different aspects. According to (Lagrosen, 2004) showed that students, employers, teaching and non-teaching staff, government and donor agencies, censors, auditors, assessors have their own definitions. According to (Yin, 2015) showed that the concept of quality. In fact, there are many ways of defining quality, but it can be grouped into five groups of qualities: quality is superior, is perfection, is fit for purpose, is worth the money, and is worth the conversion.
There are a several findings of definition regarding to the concept or term “satisfaction” in the services and marketing literature. According to (Douglas, 2006) satisfaction is a pleasurable fulfilment which in general consumers are familiar that consumption completes some goal, desire and consequently this completion creates a pleasurable feeling. As for (Douglas, 2006) satisfaction refers to an alternate response that is centred on matching the result of the product with some standard set prior to the purchase and measured during or after consumption. On the contrary, (Ibrahim, 2014) describes satisfaction as a common evaluation based on the result of the product perceived after the purchase and compared with prospects prior to the purchase. Additionally, the term satisfaction has been researched thoroughly in many empirical studies through massive personal interviews and meetings with consumer groups. Satisfaction according to (Truong, 2016) comprises of three crucial elements which are first, a general affective response that varies in its intensity, secondly a focus on the choice of product, purchase or consumption and lastly, the moment of determination that varies according to different situations and duration in time. The term satisfaction itself creates a vast diversity within industry and societal perspectives and varies with regard to the object focus and level of specificity. According to (Douglas, 2006) satisfaction consists of levels of satisfaction with a product or service, purchase decision experience, performance attribute, consumption-use experience, department or store of the business organization, lastly with a pre-purchasing experience.
There are a several findings of definition regarding to the concept or term “Human resources” in the human resource management literature. It plays an important part of developing and making a company or organization at the beginning or making a success at the end, due to the labor provided by employees. According to (Debnath, 2012) human resources are intended to show how to have better employment relations in the workforce. Also, according to (Lien, 2017) human resources are to bring out the best work ethic of the employees and therefore making a move to a better working environment. The development of human resources is essential for any organization that would like to be dynamic and growth-oriented. Unlike other resources, according to (Gallifa, 2010) human resources have rather unlimited potential capabilities. The potential can be used only by creating a climate that can continuously identify, bring to surface, nurture and use the capabilities of people. (Brown, 2011) studied that the lecturers and staffs of the university are sufficient soft skills to need for the management of the training and education. According to (Hadullo, 2017) studied that the lecturers and staffs of the university are sufficient major knowledge to need for the management of the training and education. And (Hill, 2003) studied that the lecturers and staffs of the university are sufficient Information Technology (IT) skills to need for the management of the training and education. (Sackey, 2016) studied that the lecturers and staffs of the university are sufficient research skills to need for the management of the training and education. (Douglas, 2006) studied that the lecturers and staffs of the university are sufficient English skills to need for the management of the training and education.
Based on the above mentioned human resources, the researchers have following hypotheses:
H1: The human resources had positive relation to the training quality at Lac Hong University.
H2: The human resources had positive relation to the student’s satisfaction at Lac Hong University.
There are a several findings of definition regarding to the concept or term “Facility or equipment” in the training services literature. According to (Yin, 2014) showed that a training facility for adult professionals must have flexible and technologically-advanced learning environments that are safe, healthy, comfortable, aesthetically-pleasing, and accessible. It must be able to accommodate the specific space and equipment needs of the training program and curriculum. (Widaryanti, 2016) showed that a training facility for adult professionals must have flexible and technologically-advanced learning environments that are safe, healthy, comfortable, aesthetically-pleasing, and accessible. It must be able to accommodate the specific space and equipment needs of the training program and curriculum. According to (Sackey, 2016) support spaces geared toward adult needs, such as a business station that allows students to carry out some business functions during their training sessions, must be seamlessly integrated into the facility as well. Large-size rooms designed for lecture-style instruction, training and auditorium equipped with partitions to create smaller training venues at the university. (Hadullo, 2017) studied that multiple purpose medium-size instruction rooms and the seating configuration, the rooms may accommodate lecture-style instruction or encourage interaction in the form of roundtable discussions and teleconferences at the university. (Gallifa, 2010) explained that computer training rooms equipped with computer workstations and internet access for each student, staffs and lecturers at the university. Learning using telecommunication technologies like cable television, internet, satellites, and videotapes at the university (Mtebe, 2014).
Based on the above mentioned training facilities, the researchers have following hypotheses:
H3: The training facilities had positive relation to the training quality at Lac Hong University.
H4: The training facilities had positive relation to the student’s satisfaction at Lac Hong University.
There are a several findings of definition regarding to the concept or term “Information technology” in the information technology literature. According to (Parpala, 2011) IT has created a society which expects instant results. This technological revolution has increased the rate at which information is exchanged between stakeholders. A faster exchange of information can benefit businesses as they are able to react quickly to changes within their operating environment. However, an ability to react quickly also creates extra pressure as businesses are expected to deliver on their promises within ever decreasing time scales. (Sackey, 2016) showed that the Internet is having a profound impact on the marketing mix strategy of organizations.
Consumers can shop 24 h a day from where ever they want and however they want via smart phones, laptops and tablets. Technology has become an indispensable tool for business, industry, and education. Many training courses are specifically designed to enhance a trainee's competency with new software and hardware. According to (Meštrovi?, 2017) explained that technology has even changed the way instruction is provided: from traditional live instructor-led courses to self-directed learning and individualized instruction. Distance learning using telecommunication technologies like cable television, Internet, satellites, and videotapes, is popular because it allows students from across the nation to participant in courses remote from the point of instruction. (Ibrahim, 2014) studied the pace of technological change is so fast that the average life of a computer chip is approximately 6 months. According to (Shah, 2012) studied that technology is utilized by all age groups, students are exposed to technology from birth and a new generation of technology savvy pensioners known as “silver surfers” have emerged. Technology will continue to evolve and impact consumer habits and expectations, organizations that ignore this will hinder their success. According to (Li, 2017) showed that many training facilities provide IT connection in only a few areas, like computer training rooms, working stations, research rooms and media centers at the university. Internet access, and local area Networks, Wide-Area Networks, Wireless fidelity provided adequate equipment rooms and conduit runs for them at the university. According to (Mayoka, 2012) analysed computer and internet connectivity at desks, as appropriate equipping fixed desks with under-top computers to ensure adequate sightlines between trainers and trainees at the university. All educational facilities, including training facilities have high-quality indoor environments to promote learning as well as training at the university (Sackey, 2016). The world today is boiling down to the 4.0 industrial revolution, where all organizations are determined to focus all their resources on innovation to create digital convergence between technologies. Improving the operations, functions and internal processes are very important factors. This has led to the need for knowledge and skills in both the economy and information technology for enterprises to become a vital target (Hadullo, 2017).
There are a several findings of factors regarding to the concept or term training quality in the services of educations. According to (Masoumi, 2012) a great deal of effort is required to make sure that skills development systems deliver both the quantity and the quality of training needed. Factors that are critical to supporting these aims include: IT, facilities, initial training, in-service learning, and working conditions for teachers, trainers, and directors of training institutions and master crafts persons to take on apprentices; up-to-date training courses, methods, facilities and materials; combining classroom and work-based training through formal apprenticeships and other learning ships; and, involving stakeholders in setting standards and assessing training results.
Based on the above mentioned technology capabilities, the researchers have following hypotheses:
H5: The technology capabilities had positive relation to the training quality at Lac Hong University.
H6: The technology capabilities had positive relation to the student’s satisfaction at Lac Hong University.
As mentioned above, the student’s satisfaction of Lac Hong University is usually affected by training quality that offered and students experienced at LHU.
H7: The training quality had positive relation to the student’s satisfaction at Lac Hong University.
The below research model is for factors affecting training quality and student’s satisfaction. The researchers have the suggestion: Human resources have 5 observed variables, training facilities has 4 observed variables, technology capabilities have 4 observed variables, training quality has 3 observed variables and student’s satisfaction has 4 observed variables.
Based on the above mentioned models (Figure 1), studies and theories, researchers had the observation checklist and questionnaires were the main data gathering instruments while interview and document analysis were employed to enrich the data gathered through observation checklist and questionnaires.
Table 1 shows that there are 20 the observed variables: Human Resources (HR) has 5 observed variables, Training Facilities (TF) has 4 observed variables, Technology Capabilities (TC) has 4 observed variables, Training Quality (TQ) has 3 observed variables and Student’s Satisfaction (SS) has 4 observed variables.

This research should pay attention to all these factors but much depends upon the ability and experience of the researcher. The research process for factors affecting training and student’s satisfaction conducted in three phases following.
Figure 2 shows that this study conducted in three phases following:
We applied the expert methodology and based on 10 expert’s consultation and based 10 lecturers as group discussions are to improve the scale and design of the questionnaire. The results of surveying 10 experts and 10 lecturers showed that the training quality affecting student’s satisfaction. If LHU improves the training quality, student’s satisfaction will increase. This study was conducted in the first phase, we created a list of possible factors gathered from the literature reviews as mentioned in the above studies.
We tested a reliability scale with Cronbach's Alpha coefficient and exploratory factor analysis. This phase surveys samples 30 students in order to check the content and form of questionnaire. Hard copies of the refined questionnaires were directly delivered to one-site students during their studying times. Completed questionnaires were directly collected from the surveyed students because it took them less than 15 minutes to finish the survey. There are 400 students surveyed by hard copy distributed among 7.000 students of LHU in Dong Nai province, Vietnam. All data collected from the questionnaire are coded, processed by SPSS 20.0 and AMOS. Any observational variables with a total correlation coefficient greater than 0.3 and Cronbach's Alpha coefficient greater than 0.6 would ensure reliability of the scale. This method is based on the Eigenvalue, the appropriate factorial analysis and the observed variables in the whole which are correlated when Average Variance Extracted is>50%, the KMO coefficient is within 0.5 to 1, Sig coefficient ≤ 5%, the loading factors of all observed variables are>0.5 In addition, the researchers testing scale reliability with Cronbach’s alpha coefficient and Exploratory Factor Analyses (EFA) were performed. The questionnaires collected from the official survey provided primary data, which were coded, screened and analysed with SPSS and AMOS software. Literally, a scale was considered reliable if its observed variables had a corrected item-total correlation greater than 0.3 and a Cronbach’s alpha coefficient greater than 0.7. Besides, the criteria required in the EFA include: (1) Eigenvalue ≥ 1; (2) total variance explained ≥ 50%; (3) KMO ≥ 0.5; (4) Significance (Sig.) coefficient of the KMO test ≤ 0.05; (5) factor loadings of all observed variables are ≥ 0.5; (6) weight difference between the loadings of two factors>0.3 (Hair, et al., 1998).
We performed CFA and model testing with Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) analysis. The purpose of CFA helps to clarify: (1) Unilaterality, (2) Reliability of scale, (3) Convergence value, and (4) Difference value. A research model is considered relevant to market data if Chi-quare testing is P-value>5%; CMIN/df ≤ 2, some cases CMIN/df may be ≤ 3 or<5 (Hair, et al., 1998) GFI, TLI, CFI ≥ 0.9. However, according to recent researcher’s opinion, GFI is still acceptable when it is greater than 0.8; RMSEA ≤ 0.08. Apart from the above criteria, the test results must also ensure the synthetic reliability>0.6; Average Variance Extracted must be greater than 0.5 (Hair, et al., 1998).
Introduction of LHU
LHU Located in the Southern key economic zone, Lac Hong University is recognized as the first University in Dong Nai province. The University was found in 1997. Its birth has become an indispensable trend meeting the imperative needs for technical human resources of a fast socio-economic growing province with the focus of speeding up industrial parks, industrial and services professions.

This study found that three factors of human resources (β=0.378), training facilities (β=0.257) and technology capabilities (β=0.157) affected the training quality with significance level 0.01. Besides, the training quality (β=0.467) affected student’s satisfaction with significance level 0.01. In addition, three factors of human resources (β=-0.173), training facilities (β=-0.040) and technology capabilities (β=0.087) did not affect the student’s satisfaction with significance level 0.01.
This study is to find out the training quality (β=0.467) affected student’s satisfaction with significance level 0.01 at LHU. The researchers surveyed 400 students (389 processed) studying full time at LHU and answered 20 questions. Data collected from July 2017 to March 2018 at LHU. The paper Cronbach's Alpha, had been analyzed KMO test and the result of KMO analysis which used for SEM. student’s responses measured through an adapted questionnaire on a 5-point Likert scale (Conventions: 1: Completely disagree, 2: Disagree, 3: Normal; 4: Agree; 5: completely agree). The researchers had managerial implications policymaker of LHU continued to improve the training quality. The 4.0 Industrial Revolution is a combination of the achievements of the previous three industrial revolutions in the digital world. LHU can easily get information and learn the way they want. This revolution will change the LHU in the future.
Human resources (β=0.378) have the strongest impact on the training quality:
1. LHU continues to improve the professional qualifications of faculty lectures constantly improve to meet the requirements of international integration. This helps lecturers of LHU have actively participated in training and research and application of science and technology and be an opportunity to improve the quality of education and training.
2. LHU continues to improve teaching lecturers and always involved in scientific research and guidance for students. In order to develop the knowledge economy and actively integrate into the world, scientific research activities are always paid attention to by LHU. Along with teaching activities, scientific research activities are considered one of the two most important tasks of the lecturers.
3. LHU continues to improve international cooperation in improving the quality of lecturers promoted in depth. International co-operation is an opportunity for LHU to build in-depth teaching and research specialists in the field of training, which is an opportunity for faculty lecturers to exchange academic and research experiences with their international universities.
4. LHU continues to improve informatics and foreign language skills for lecturers, especially young lecturers, initially meet the requirements of international integration. The 21st century is seen as a century of global citizenship, so to educate global citizens who understand and initially practice the demands of global citizens. One of the basic requirements is to have computer skills, foreign languages to integrate in global training.
5. LHU continues to improve to attach importance to raising the level of political theory and applied IT for teaching students in the development of lecturers. LHU continues building up a contingent of lecturers with higher IT theoretical qualifications is always considered as an important task, contributing to the success of the LHU's sustainable development goals.
Training facilities (β=0.257) have the second impact on the training quality:
1. LHU continues to improve the learning environment for students, meeting the requirements of innovation and improving the quality of training, in recent years, LHU continues to focus on perfecting the system of material facilities, teaching and learning equipment, meeting the requirements of training renewal in the direction of developing the capacity and quality of learners. LHU continues to build the projects not only create a new face for higher education in the central studying for students, but also promote and motivate the LHU to continue their efforts to improve the quality of training, meeting the increasing demand of human resources of society.
2. LHU continues to invest and to improve the Website that is a place to provide and exchange information publicly on the Internet. A website can include many pages, including a home page, which is the first page displayed when a website is opened. Information on websites is transmitted by multimedia techniques: text, audio, voice, graphics, charts, images, video, and live television. Information can be accessed through other hyperlinks.
3. In addition to the emphasis on improving the quality of training with highly qualified trainers and standardized training programs. LHU continues to invest modern facilities for training and researching. This helps students improve the promotion of physical facilities is one of the factors contributing to the success of the LHU training quality. With the desire to create an exciting learning environment that brings creativity in students, LHU will create a great place with modern facilities in Dong Nai province, Vietnam and together with research and training tasks.
4. LHU should build a laboratory system, laboratories equipped with modern machinery and equipment for each sector or field of study. Besides, LHU should build modern facilities, advanced equipment with new generation high-end computer system, presentation room is equipped with big screen, soundproof, silver swallow studio that is committed to providing the highest level of customer satisfaction through the use of advanced techniques, techniques and software, such as Pro Tools, 3DS Max, 3D Maya, Zbrush, etc.
Technology capabilities (β=0.157) have the less impact on the training quality:

Despite the highlighted contributions of this research, some limitations have to be taken into research results, thereby serving as proposals for future research. First of all, our model is tested on a sample of other universities in Vietnam, so that the level of representativeness of the sample can be affected. This situation is addressed using the SEM, although the success is dependent on the accuracy of the selection made by the students at LHU. Secondly, despite the high explanatory power of the model, it could be reinforced by adding control variables, such as the personal characteristics of students, lecturer quality, and science research quality. On the other hand, given that the study explores a situation that groups together all possible study online contexts, it could be of interest for research to specify online studying situations for different purposes based the internet. Thirdly, future research is to explore the dimensionality of the quality of the website at LHU in function of the different situations of getting the information and the different supports or screens used by students is an interesting line of online research. Finally, the analysis of the longitudinal databases available to students should allow them to make comparisons over time as a result of eventual changes in the variables.
