KUALA LUMPUR - Under the Malaysian Human Resources Ministry’s Train-and-Place program, a hair academy is offering a chance for Malay-Indians to pursue fully-funded hairstyling courses.
The course is initiated by Persatuan Pengusaha Jurugaya Rambut India Malaysia (PPJ-RIM) and Akademi Antarabangsa Clipso (AAC).
“Indians should seize the opportunity to learn a trade and start their own business,” the Star online quoted AAC Director V. Logonathan, as saying.
The course will be conducted at AAC’s premises in Petaling Jaya Old Town.
All Malaysian Indians with SPM qualification and minimum age of 17 would be eligible for 350 seats of the academy.
“Response has been good. We have 100 applicants and 80 of them have started their training,” Logonathan said.
Trainees would be given an incentive of 500 ringgits per month apart from the free accommodation facility.
After passing the course, the graduates will receive the Malaysia Skills Certificate (SKM) Level 1 and 2 and AAC’s Diploma in Art and Science of Hairstyling. (ANI)
