TWI to train government-sponsored candidates at new centre in Malaysia

TWI South East Asia is delighted to have been chosen by the Malaysian government to deliver fully sponsored training to 900 candidates at its new facilities in the country.

The training will be provided as part of 1Malaysia Globally Recognised Industry and Professionals (1MalaysiaGRIP), an initiative from the Malaysian Ministry of Human Resources (PSMB) that aims to see 30,000 workers in the country receiving professional training.

TWI will be working with PSMB and project management company Fiscal Digest to deliver the training to 900 Malaysians before the end of the year. Course fees will be covered entirely by training grants from PSMB.

Four TWI courses have been approved for the 1MalaysiaGRIP scheme:

  • CSWIP Visual Welding Inspector 3.0 – a welding inspection course
  • CSWIP Radiographic Interpretation (Level 2) – a non-destructive testing course
  • BGAS-CSWIP Painting Inspector Grade 2 – a painting inspection course
  • NEBOSH International General Certificate (IGC) – a health and safety environment course.

All training will be delivered at TWI’s new base in Shah Alam, which is expected to open its doors to students in the next few weeks. The multimillion-pound centre is fitted with state-of-the-art training facilities, including welder training bays and a 490,000-litre dive tank

TWI has a history of working with the Malaysian government, in March last year welcoming a visit from the Minister of Works, Datuk Fadillah Yusof, to its Cambridge headquarters in the UK.

This new collaboration between TWI, PSMB and Fiscal Digest is the latest development in TWI’s marketing and training activities in Malaysia, where demand remains high for professional training and certification.
