KUCHING, July 18: Sarawak Metro Sdn Bhd aims to produce 50 apprentices by 2025 to contribute to human capital development under its Young Talent Programme. (YTP).

According to a news report by the Sarawak Public Communication Unit (Ukas), Sarawak Metro chief executive officer Mazli Mustaffa emphasised to youths the opportunities presented in the programme.

“There are opportunities, especially in gaining experience and learning directly from original equipment manufacturers (OEM) related to the autonomous rail transit (ART) system in China and other countries,” he said at a certificate presentation ceremony at a hotel here recently.

During the ceremony, Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) chairman Tan Sri Datuk Amar Abdul Aziz Husain presented certificates to 10 apprentices who completed the training programme and were absorbed as full-time staff at Sarawak Metro.

He then called on all young talents to make full use of what they have learned from mentors as a solid foundation towards developing themselves as experts.

“I hope that the knowledge and skills acquired will form a solid foundation to thrive and eventually master specific fields and contribute to the overall success of our Kuching Urban Transport System (KUTS) project,” he said in a media statement.

Since YTP was introduced, Sarawak Metro has recruited two groups of apprentices, with the second group comprising 16 young talents.

Apprentices will undergo mentoring, training, and outreach programmes during their two-year apprenticeship. — DayakDaily
