Automotive Industry In Malaysia Will Have A Trained Workforce


The Ministry of Human Resources (MOHR) has developed and run three Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutes in the Klang Valley region to provide a comprehensive training plan for Malaysia’s automotive-related profession.

Furthermore, the Ministry provided information in a statement earlier this week, which said that it had been contacted by several stakeholders and Members of Parliament on the Government’s plans and initiatives to create a competent workforce, particularly in this subject.

As shared by the Ministry, the three Klang Valley TVET institutions are:

  • Shah Alam High Technology Training Center (ADTEC),

  • Kuala Lumpur Industrial Training Institute,

  • Industrial Training Kuala Langat and Center for Teacher Training and Advanced Skills (CIAST) Shah Alam.

Furthermore, these institutions provide a variety of TVET courses, including those in the automotive sector, beginning at the certificate level and progressing all the way up to the Malaysian Advanced Skills Diploma (DLKM) under the Malaysian Skills Certification System (SPKM).

The National Youth Advanced Skills Institute (IKTBN) Dusun Tua, Kelana Jaya Community College, GIATMARA Hulu Langat, and GIATMARA Hulu Selangor are among the other TVET organisations operating in the Klang Valley under the management of other Ministries and offering TVET training opportunities in the automotive industry to young people in the neighbourhood.

Existing TVET institutions will strengthen their ties with the industry and explore the possibilities of building new, comprehensive collaborations in order to extend the TVET curriculum and generate a skilled workforce in the automotive sector. As a consequence, the sector will be able to participate more actively in TVET implementation through curriculum creation, training delivery, information sharing, and equipment sharing.

The National Dual Training System (SLDN) and Academy in Industry (AiI) programmes were also put into place at the same time in order to enhance the supply of trained personnel in the automotive industry. For the aim of the Malaysian Skills Certification, participating businesses will directly teach apprentices in a variety of automotive skills.

MOHR also discussed regarding the Automotive High-Tech Valley (AHTV) project at Proton City, Tanjung Malim.The project will grow into a major hub for the automotive industry and stimulate economic growth in the neighbourhood. Incorporate talent development and RM32 billion worth of research and development (R&D) will widened the project’s execution.

“The smooth running of this project through the continuous development and provision of skilled talent will be an example to investors of Malaysia’s approach in facilitating investment efficiently and promptly.”

In order to satisfy the skilled workforce requirements for this project, MOHR will periodically have meetings with Geely to go over the talent development mechanisms in the holistic automotive area, including skills and knowledge in the field of electric cars.
