Kota Kinabalu: TAS Institute of Oil and Gas (TAS) under Silver Kris Sdn Bhd has partnered with Gadang Works Sdn Bhd (GAD) to launch a state-of-the-art training centre in Kuala Lumpur to bolster Malaysia’s oil and gas industry through skills development. 

The joint venture centre will offer globally recognized oil and gas training courses to Malaysians, foreign students, and industry personnel. It will be equipped with modern classrooms, the latest equipment, and live plants to provide a realistic training environment.

“The joint venture is in line with our commitment to delivering socioeconomic impact for learners through our globally recognised certifications,” said TAS Executive Director Willie Ng in a statement, here, Tuesday. 

“The availability of skills and competencies is crucial to the continuous development of the oil and gas industry,” he added.

He said the joint venture with GAD will further bolster the domestic and regional OGSE ecosystem by nurturing learners, complementing the nation’s economic development agenda and strengthening its IR 4.0 capability. 

“The joint venture also demonstrates what we can achieve through collaboration and partnership, and we welcome the opportunity to work with partners that share a similar vision in shaping and developing our nation’s skilled supply,” he said. 

For GAD, Chief Executive Officer Lew Chee Cheong said the strategic alliance reflects the company’s commitment to the Malaysian market and will create local employment opportunities through skills development initiatives.

“Our strategic alliance reflects GAD’s commitment to Malaysia and strengthens our local market presence through the amalgamation of technology by both companies, creation of local employment opportunities and continued investment in skills development,” he said. 

“The joint venture also aspires to roll out initiatives in upskilling and reskilling the local workforce through amongst others, Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) courses, in an effort to achieve the country’s goal to become a high-income nation. 

“This initiative aims to provide learners with in demand skills to access high-quality jobs, improving livelihood and spurring competitive industries that drive economic growth,” he said. 

TAS was established in 2008 as the first oil and gas training centre in Sabah providing professional, technical, skills and safety courses that cut across different aspects of the oil and gas industry. 

In addition, TAS is the only Business and Technology Educational Council and Offshore Petroleum Institute Training Organisation approved centre in Sabah, Malaysia. 

Over its years of operation, TAS has successfully trained more than 2,000 Sabahans in BTEC International Specialist Advanced Diploma Engineering in oil and gas operations and 84,000 oil and gas personnel in various safety courses.

GAD provides complete engineering solutions to all principles in the industries, i.e., oil and gas, process engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, instrumentation, and control engineering, with a broad and expanding portfolio of high-tech products and knowledge. 

GAD’s products are compatible with the latest Industry Revolution 4.0 technologies, such as Augmented Reality (AR), SCADA Systems, the Internet of Things, and so on. 

Their equipment fulfils the TVET requirements and equips the students with technical knowledge and hands-on experience to face the industrial world.
