Get training and skills in Kimanis Petroleum Training Centre


Kimanis Petroleum Training Centre

[Photo update] The Kimanis Petroleum Training Centre

Last time I talked about how Petronas can contribute more in Sabah rather than giving just a scholarships. I know this may be old story, but I like the new development in Sabah’s the Oil & Gas scene.

Early in October, The Kimanis Petroleum Training Centre operated by Petronas, is now open for enrolment. This training centre will offer career opportunities to young Sabahans in the state’s oil and gas sector. This is pretty much what I like to see for Sabahan, getting educated and skilled is the must have things for them. Simply to say, without it, we are useless.

KTC is the first institute to offer the Industrial Instrumentation and Control certificate in Sabah, focuses on providing oil and gas industry skills and developing manpower among Sabahan youths to fulfill industry needs. Under the collaboration with Pasir Gudang Industrial Training Institute (ILP), the modules were prepared based on the oil and gas industry’s needs.

Besides teaching the students with technical skills, KTC will also provide them with life skills such as financial management, English language skills and religious classes for the Muslim students. The students are also given RM400 pocket money a month, which is split into two installments, one installment per two weeks.

However KTC will be fully functional by 2013, but a temporary campus in Membakut has be launched already to get things in motion. KTC’s temporary campus offers a full-time programme in Industrial Instrumentation and Control using the National Occupational Skills Standard (NOSS) under the purview of the Department of Skill Development (DSD) which is under the Ministry of Human Resources.

I don’t see what not to love about this new programme for the youths. I wish I could get this opportunity earlier, but I’ll leave that to the younger generations. 25 youths have become the first batch of trainees, my question is now, will they have to pay to enroll to this centre? or are they in under the guise of the original Petonas Scholarship programme?

I would be happy to hear if any youths with great qualification can enroll in, as well as affordable fee cost. I do not want them to graduate with a big sum of loaned money on their back, and if there is anyone out there that can clarify thoroughly how the temporary centre works, the feel free to give your input in the comment box below.






For an educated and skilled Sabahan in the future that can stand up for their rights…
