Rightway Elite, a test centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, received its Accredited Test Centre Certificate from ICDL Asia in a ceremony in March, attended by the Irish Finance Minister, Michael Noonan, and Irish Ambassador to Malaysia, Eamon Hickey.
Rightway Elite will partner with the Construction Industry Development Board of Malaysia, and Akademi Binaan Malaysia, the Malaysian construction academy, to offer ICDL under the ‘Re-Skilling Malaysia Program’, with the first batch of training set to commence within the first half of this year.
The program is funded by local government, and is open to the public, including recent graduates, and unemployed people. The aim is to help participants become more employable. A core component of the program is to equip current and future employees of the construction industry with relevant ICT skills, such as using project management tools, word processing, and spreadsheets. This will enable them to more efficiently perform tasks like costing and reporting.
