- Malaysians workforce can upskill through digital tech courses
- Working with Meta, Microsoft, Oracle and SAS to offer free courses
Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) has announced the third installment of the Let’s Learn Digital (LLD), an upskilling programme covering a wide array of digital tech courses.
Launched under the agency’s #mydigitalworkforce initiative in 2020, this year’s programme will provide opportunities for the Malaysian workforce to upskill themselves through digital tech courses, MDEC said in a statement.
These courses include data science, cybersecurity, animation, game development, digital global business services, financial technology (fintech), digital marketing and cloud, among others, it added.
For the third installment, MDEC said it is collaborating with Meta, Microsoft, Oracle, SAS and training providers under its Digital Skills Training Directory to make available a host of free-of-charge courses.
Interested individuals can register for the courses from July 1 until Sept 30. Registered participants can undergo training that has been scheduled during the period between July 1 until Dec 31, MDEC said.
MDEC CEO Mahadhir Aziz (pic) said the agency will continue to work hard to ensure the pipeline for digitally-skilled and capable workforce goes unhindered.
“A dynamic digital ecosystem requires equally productive digital talents to be developed coherently as we believe a good digital talent pool is as vital as advanced machinery.
“Locally, we have seen many digital jobs have been vacant, or being filled by expatriates, due to the gap in digital skills of Malaysians”
“With programmes such as LLD, we will continue to step up the creation of the talent pool through collaboration with industry partners who will provide insights on the current skills and job demand as well as expertise,” said Mahadhir.
Among the courses being offered include Blueprint Digital Marketing Associate Certification by Meta and Microsoft Azure fundamentals focusing on cloud, data and AI by Microsoft.
Meanwhile, the Skill Builder programme by SAS allows participants to turn huge amounts of complex data into knowledge by applying the most advanced analytics, business intelligence, data management and AI solutions.
Oracle University participants can enhance their knowledge of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with expert-led digital training and build cloud proficiency on OCI.
With the inclusion of training providers from the Digital Skills Training Directory, MDEC said various digital courses are also being offered, particularly on the subject of data science, cybersecurity, software development, animation, game development, fintech and digital global business services
