TWI Malaysia unites with IKON Technical Academy for apprenticeship programme

TWI S.E.Asia Sdn Bhd has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with IKON Technical Academy the creation of a new collaborative arrangement to explore opportunities to develop, support and enrich research activities, while also creating an educational programme and training for apprentices.

The MoU was signed on 20 August, 2019 at Putra World Trade Center by Noorun Nashirah Binti Ramli, CEO of IKON, and Ernesto Moskini, Regional Manager of TWI S.E.Asia Sdn Bhd. The signing was attended by representatives from both companies as well as academic collaborators, industrial advisors and IKON’s students and their parents.

A welcome speech was followed by a montage from the IKON Technical Academy, before a speech was made by representatives of TWI and IKON Technical Academy, after which the signing took place.

The agreement will see TWI deliver welding and inspection training to IKON’s apprentices, whose apprenticeship programme will last for 24 months. The apprenticeship will include one month of training at TWI, where the students will learn crucial skills required by industry, before the apprentices gain on-the-job training and experience within industry.

The students will be monitored by TWI representatives throughout their training, which will finish with the award of certificates accredited by the Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam (JPA), the Malaysia Qualification Agency (MQA) as well as TWI.
