For those seeking job opportunity in the automotive and manufacturing sector can now opt to visit the Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT or better known as MARii newly launched MARiiKerja portal for these specific jobs.
Aimed at providing avenue for those with Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia results and graduates of skill-based institutes through the Industry-Led Professional Certificate (IPC) Programme, the platform has an easy to use interface specifically designed to allow job seekers to register themselves online.
“MARiiKerja is one of the government’s continuous efforts in digitalising the job procurement process, as well as admission into MARii’s training programmes. This website is a one-stop location to obtain information about programmes offered, thus easing the application procedure.”, said Dato’ Ts. Madani Sahari, CEO MARii.
“Although the country is currently under restricted movement, this digital platform allows for the continuation of efforts in generating new job opportunities, thus ensuring a sustainable supply of skilled labour to meet the demands of the manufacturing and services sectors”, he added.
The IPC programme, first introduced by MARii in 2012, is one of the human capital development programs designed together with the industry. IPC produces skilled employees through specialized modules, as well as on the job training.
“The IPC program, which has produced more than 33,000 skilled workers, receives continued support from the Senior Minister, YB Dato’ Seri Azmin Ali and MITI as an initiative to increase the rate of skills development while combating unemployment under the Short-Term Economic Recovery Plan (PENJANA).”, added Dato’ Madani.
Throughout the programme, no fees are charged and all living expenses including accommodation, transportation, and meals will be fully provided. Monthly allowances and insurance coverage are also provided for trainees throughout the training period.
Usually, the IPC trainings are conducted physically at the MARii Academy of Technology and other recognized training centres. However, during the MCO or other situations that warrant reduced face-to-face training, the IPC training can be conducted online through the MARiiKerja platform.
After completing the 30-day classroom-based training, the trainees will be awarded the IPC certificate. The IPC-Advanced Apprenticeship Program (IPC-AAP) certificate will be awarded at the end of a 5-month practical training session.
The certificates awarded are recognized by MARii and the industry, and qualifies participants to obtain the Malaysian Skills Certificate (SKM) under the Department of Skills Development (JPK) through the Pengiktirafan Pencapaian Terdahulu (PPT) programme.
“We are also continuously expanding MARiiKerja as an initiative to digitalise other human capital development programmes offered by MARii, such as AICE (Automotive Industry Certification Engineering), MARii Apprentice Graduate programme, DEP (Digital Engineering and Prototyping) and others.”, said Dato’ Madani.
