The Chapter Nine presents different stages which demonstrate that it is essential for our university training to collaborate with the industrial fabric (“work in real life”). It also shows that our scientific and technological training involves relentless investment to keep up with technological developments and the needs of manufacturers. The story of a close partnership that, through its organization and strategy, resulted in the certification of Internet of things (IoT) skills within the framework of Industry 4.0 were explained. This research traces the history of one such close partnership that has evolved over time between a certain number of actors. In 2021, this partnership made it possible to validate a self-styled “PLCnext” certification for students following a vocational degree course at the University of Orléans in France. This world-first system will allow other universities that are members of the EduNet network to benefit from this feedback.
