Emer­son, UniKL to work on HVACR cour­ses

New Straits Times - - Higher Ed -

signed a train­ing agree­ment with Univer­sity Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) to de­velop a col­lab­o­ra­tive in­dus­try train­ing pro­gramme in the heat­ing, ven­ti­la­tion, air con­di­tion­ing and re­frig­er­a­tion (HVACR) sec­tor in the coun­try.

Both Emer­son and UniKL will jointly de­velop short course tech­ni­cal pro­grammes tai­lored for HVACR in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als in the op­er­a­tion and main­te­nance of re­frig­er­a­tion sys­tems. The in­dus­try train­ing is open to both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional par­tic­i­pants from the HVACR in­dus­try and a Cer­tifi­cate of Achieve­ment will be awarded to each par­tic­i­pant upon suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the course.

Emer­son vice-pres­i­dent mar­ket­ing and part­ner Asia, Mid­dle East and Africa, Tom Par­rish said: “Emer­son is deeply en­gaged in en­cour­ag­ing and ed­u­cat­ing the in­dus­tries to­wards build­ing a sus­tain­able fu­ture. The col­lab­o­ra­tion will pro­vide us with the com­mit­ted ap­proach to work­ing closer to­gether, al­low­ing us to reach our com­mon goals to­gether, that is to grow in­dus­try ready tal­ents and meet­ing the ever grow­ing de­mand for skilled tal­ents in the HVACR in­dus­try.”

The in­dus­trial-in­sti­tu­tional col­lab­o­ra­tion will also see Emer­son con­tribut­ing fa­cil­ity equip­ment to sup­port train­ing pro­gramme on-cam­pus at UniKL’s Malaysia France In­sti­tute (MFI) in Bangi, Se­lan­gor. Some ma­jor con­trac­tors and en­dusers like re­tail­ers have been short­listed to un­dergo the train­ing pro­gramme be­gin­ning this month.

“Pro­grammes of­fered by UniKL are in­dus­tryspe­cific and can­not be found any­where else in Malaysia. We touch base on the needed in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence as when our tal­ents grad­u­ate, the en­vi­ron­ment might be slightly dif­fer­ent, this is why we part­ner with in­dus­tries as to be in-line with what to ex­pect.” said UniKL pres­i­dent and CEO Pro­fes­sor Datuk Dr Mazliham Mohd Su’ud.

He added: “UniKL prac­tices an open door pol­icy for in­dus­tries to work with us act­ing as a con­duit for achiev­ing stronger ties of friend­ship. We opt for long-term cus­tomised pro­grammes for in­dus­try part­ners and the part­ner­ship with Emer­son rep­re­sents the type of cer­ti­fi­ca­tion we are look­ing for. This is a start­ing point for both par­ties to ex­change tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise, seek ad­vi­sory in tech­nol­ogy area that pro­vides nec­es­sary ex­po­sure and skill-set development for the ben­e­fit of in­dus­tries, com­mu­nity, staff, stu­dents and our na­tion as a whole.”

Recog­nised widely for its en­gi­neer­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties and man­age­ment ex­cel­lence, Emer­son has de­vel­oped a train­ing and ed­u­ca­tional pro­gramme known as Part­ner+ to sup­port the Asia mar­ket with over 50 train­ing mod­ules on sys­tems, semi-her­metic com­pres­sors, scroll com­pres­sor tech­nol­ogy, elec­tronic con­trols, valve tech­nol­ogy and re­mote mon­i­tor­ing.

Pro­grammes of­fered by UniKL are in­dus­try-spe­cific and can­not be found any­where else in Malaysia.
