Institution Profile

Background of Institution

The Penang Skills Development Cente (PSDC) was established in May 1989 to address the shortage of sufficiently skilled manpower. PSDC strives to provide an atmosphere conducive to effective learning in its 100,000 sq. ft. premise in Bayan Lepas Industrial Zone, a location that is easily accessible to the majority of trainees.In November 2000, the PSDC set up a branch campus in Bukit Minyak. The 20,000 sq. ft. premise which offers Applied Engineering programs, caters to the needs of SMEs on the mainland. A joint effort of the government, academia and industry, the PSDC is unquestionably unique. Although initiated by the State Government through Penang Development Corporation (PDC) and aided by academia, management expertise and administration is left to the industry.

The centre operates as a non-profit organization and invites membership from the industry. Participating companies pool their resources together to help plan, design and conduct an extensive range of training programs directly relevant to immediate and forecasted needs. This enables the PSDC to offer the most cost effective training for the industry and at the same time bridge the gap between skills taught in public institutions and skills required on the job.
