Prasarana Malaysia Bhd is planning to combine its bus and rail academies into a single institution with the aim to develop it into a specialist in land transportation technical training and vocational courses.
Prasarana President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Mohamed Hazlan Mohamed Hussain said the consolidation is part of the group’s five-year transformation plan to build talent more effectively.
“We are working on a five-year transformation plan, where we will have many initiatives and strategies covering all of our businesses. Education is one of our focuses, to build talent internally and increase our collaborations with other higher education institutions,” he said.
Prasarana Group Chief Operating Officer for strategy and transformation Ang Yoke Kee said the transformation plan has been outlined and the group has provided the Ministry of Finance (MoF) and Ministry of Transport (MoT) with updates on the progress.
“We are working on it, and we have briefed the transport minister and finance minister. We work very closely with them and provide the MoT and MoF with updates on the progress; we are very lucky to have their support in what we do,” Ang added.
