SAINS took the opportunity to showcase the career and training opportunities available from SAINS at the recent rebranding of the Centre of Technical Excellence (CTE) Sarawak.
CTE, previously know as The Youth Development Training Centre, was officially launched by Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud on the 1 October 2014. As part of the event, various companies and industry players were invited to showcase the career opportunities and apprenticeship/technical training programmes of those companies available to the local youth.
In addition to the career and industrial trainee opportunities offered by SAINS as one of the largest employers of IT personnel in Sarawak, the SAINS booth also provided information on the various training courses and exams available from SAINS’ training center for those wishing to improve their career opportunities. SAINS Training Centre is one of the only Training Providers in East Malaysia that offers internationally recognized professional certification testing.
SAINS also showcased the RIGHT Programme, a SAINS CSR project which provides rural youths with 6 months of free IT training in various disciplines such as hardware, software, networking, repair and design as well as business skills, after which, they are given the opportunity to start their own rural IT Centre in their home villages.
The Centre of Technical Excellence (CTE) Sarawak is located at Rampangi, Santubong and is administered as a subsidiary of Yayasan Sarawak to provide relevant skilling and up-skilling programmes through a public-private approach for youths. CTE was setup to establish smart partnership with industries, particularly for hands-on or on-the-job experience.
