Kuala Lumpur – Malaysian Armed Forces’ veterans and future retirees can now participate in the oil and gas industry through the training offered by the Perbadanan Hal Ehwal Bekas Angkatan Tentera (PERHEBAT).
The new sector that caters for future retirees and ATM veterans is made possible through the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between PERHEBAT and Shapadu Group here yesterday.
Chairman of PERHEBAT, Lieutenant General Datuk Seri Abdul Aziz Ibrahim (R) and Managing Director of Shapadu Group, Datuk Seri Shafiz Datuk Shahrani signed the MoU that covers five important scopes.
The new scopes in the MoU are believed to be able to elevate the skills and incomes of ATM veterans in their second career.
The MoU also enables future retirees and ATM veterans to benefit in the courses offered such as safety control services, hotel, building, and logistics.
PERHEBAT and Shapadu Group hopes that through such cooperation, the gap in the shortage of skilled workers in such sectors will be smaller.
The five main scopes that entail cooperation which could benefit future retirees and ATM veterans include, work placement (train and place or place and train); training while working (LSK); work placement to ATM veterans; placement of trainees for industrial training (on job training) and placement of trainers/PERHEBAT staff (return to industry).
Meanwhile, PERHEBAT in a statement said, it offers 60 courses to future retirees of ATM through transition training. Added value in entrepreneurship is incorporated in the courses to enhance its effectiveness.
The statement added, 33 out of 60 courses which have been developed by PERHEBAT are homegrown concepts. It has quick win value that focuses on the requirement and demand of customers and recent industries.
PERHEBAT also said that up to date, it has signed 37 MoU with private companies and government agencies to ensure the courses offered are relevant and fulfill the current market demand.
Among the government agencies and private companies involved are Ministry of Human Resources, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry, Majlis Amanah Rakyat, Boustead Heavy Industries Corporation, Boustead Hotels And Resort Sdn.
