THE Advanced Technology Training Centre (ADTEC) in Bintulu is expected to be operational in January next year.
Manpower Department director general Romli Hassan said the project was scheduled for completion in November.
“It was set up as a passage for Industrial Training Institute certificate holders to acquire their diplomas,” he said at a monthly assembly of federal civil servants at the Kota Samarahan Industrial Training Centre yesterday.
Romli said there were 27 Manpower Department training institutions nationwide, including one each in Kota Samarahan and Miri.
He said the institutions were aimed at implementing skills training programmes for Form Five school leavers and industrial workers.
“With the two institutions and the ADTEC in Sarawak, I hope to see more Sarawakians emerging as competent and skilled workers. It is hoped that they will support the development of the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy,” he said.
ADTEC, covering an area of 24ha, has the capacity for 720 students.
On another note, Romli said it was time for Malaysian job seekers, including graduates, to change their mindset and not be fussy about their jobs.
He said skills that training was not an alternative but a requirement of industries today.
“Skilled labour is needed as a catalyst for the development of various sectors including agriculture, construction and the green industry,” he said.
