Kota Kinabalu: Twenty hairdressers received their certificates after completing a six-month course under the Human Resource Development Department on Monday.

The event witnessed by the graduates' family members was held at Zara's Boutique Hotel and was officiated by the department's Director Billy Yumpod.

"I understand that the trainees had passed their exams with flying colours results and I am very happy with this. "This means that the investments in sponsoring all of your studies is not wasted even though we cannot guarantee that all of you will get a job," Yumpod said.

However, he told the graduates that the most important thing is that they can now use their certificates for job application purposes.

"You might even consider of having your own salons in the future but the main thing now is getting a job with the help of your certificates," he said.


The trainees who underwent their course at Uptrends Beauty Academy started with their training on Oct 1 last year up till March 31 this year.

"Uptrends Beauty Academy was appointed by the government for the first time with the objective to train the students in hairdressing. I am very satisfied because so far I have not received any complaints from the people on the academy's performance," he said.

The academy's manager, Jellsie Fung also announced that among the 20 trainees, 12 of them had been absorbed to work at the academy's partner salons.

"I would like to thank the Human Resource Department for giving us the opportunity to train the students in achieving skills as well as self-empowerment," she said, adding that she also hoped the department will continue to offer such courses to all.
