“Scania is a global organisation with a proven track-record in making an impact in the transport industry. The MoU represents Scania’s role as the employer of choice to those who are set to have a career in the Heavy Commercial Vehicle Industry. Interested candidates on the NDTS certified training who join Scania’s journey towards a sustainable transport system, are contributing to the future of transport. They are part of a team that can truly make a difference, part of a powerful force with a proven track record, the ability to make things happen and create real change. I believe being part of this strong, supportive culture lets people grow and contribute,” commented Dalila Sharingat, Director of IKTBNDT.

Scania Malaysia is the only company in the heavy commercial vehicles industry in Malaysia to be accredited as a Centre of National Dual Training System / Sistem Latihan Dual Nasional (NDTS / SLDN) by the Department of Skills Development, Ministry of Human Resources Malaysia. The MoU is for a partnership between Scania and IKTBNDT in which the NDTS, a method-based industry-driven training concept is operated through collaboration between the company and training institution.

The ‘dual’ system means students receive training in 2 learning situations. The NDTS Accredited Centre in Scania Malaysia will cover 70% to 80% of the practical training module (hands-on), and IKTBNDT academic learnings will cover 20% to 30% of theory (knowledge).
