PUJA Academy Sdn Bhd (PASB) and local training organisation Pakar Tenaga Bersatu (PTB) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the introduction and advancement of capacity building and training programmes.
The September 11 signing took place at the PUJA Hub, Universiti Teknologi Brunei (UTB).
PASB Managing Director Julian Fung and PTB Founder and Managing Director Pengiran Hishamuddin Alli bin Pengiran Jaya Indera Pengiran Haji Mokhtar Puteh signed the MoU.
Institution of Surveyors, Engineers and Architects (PUJA) Brunei President Ir Haji Muhammad Zin bin Haji Salleh, PUJA Engineers Division Vice President Alice Lim, Co-founder of PTB Hajah Normawati binti Dato Paduka Haji Othman, and members of PUJA, PASB and PTB attended.
The programmes to be developed will be for PUJA members, the construction industry and other industries in Brunei. PASB is the training and development arm of PUJA.
The MoU is the first step in collaborating with the local training organisation to provide continuous professional development and training programmes (such as Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) training), for PUJA members and the construction industry in Brunei Darussalam. The collaboration includes co-operation into developing and delivering capacity building training to cater for and to meet regulatory and industrial requirements and demands locally.
PTB is a locally owned and operated company committed to contribute to the competency development and skills, as part of lifelong learning and increasing productivity of Brunei Darussalam’s workforce.
Through its existing strategic partnership with the Nisai Group, the construction related training programmes carry internationally recognised qualification and certification through NOCN Cskills Awards (previously under the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), the United Kingdom).
