Malaysia: IEM Training Centre at Kota Kinabalu ready by year end

KOTA KINABALU: The proposed Institute of Engineers Malaysia training centre (IEMTC) at Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP) will be ready by the end of next year.

The two-storey building with six classrooms and one auditorium will utilise both passive and active features of green building according to the Green Building Index (GBI) rating tools.

IEM Sabah Branch chairman Lo Chong Chiun said this during a courtesy call on Deputy Chief Minister cum Minister of Infrastructure Development Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan at the latter’s office here recently.

During the meeting Lo, who was with seven other committee members, extended an invitation to Pairin to grace IEM Sabah 36th annual dinner here on December 1.

“It is timely to have a training centre as this is in line with one of the 12 NKEAs of the Government Transformation Program on human capital development especially for local Sabahans,” said Lo.

He conveyed IEM Sabah’s appeal to the government to ensure the participation of local engineering firms in the oil and gas industry.

Lo said the Board of Engineers Malaysia had already made amendments to the Registration of Engineers Act to accommodate the liberalization of professional engineering services.

He said IEM would be having a road show on the amendments to the Engineers Act 2012 here on November 5.
