Malaysian Meister Program (MMP) is a national effort introduced by Selangor Human Resources Development Centre (SHRDC) and the Federation of Malaysian Skills Development Centre (FMSDC). Adapted from the German “Meister” (meaning Master Craftsman) programme, The Malaysian Meister Program (MMP) is a major breakthrough in Technical and Vocational Education & Training (TVET) in Malaysia. It represents the future of TVET if Malaysia is to meet its goal of sufficient knowledge workers to become a high-income nation with a knowledge-based economy.

The MMP is a 2-year course that allows students the opportunity of fully subsidized study whilst working and gaining valuable industrial experience. At the end of the course, the students will earn the coveted Malaysian Meister Certificate as well as the Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia Level 5 (Advanced Diploma) and have the opportunity to work with Auto Global as an Associate Engineer upon graduating.

I was sponsored by AG to continue SKM 5 (under Meister Program). Before my work experience here, I was lack in industrial knowledge such as handling PLC program, CNC machines and soft skills.  You will not experience this in vocational/technical colleges.

AG opens opportunity to anyone in the company who are keen to seek education advancement and learn more in the automotive replacement parts manufacturing industry.

Previously where I was studying, I have no idea about stamping machines, laser and welding robots. Now I have gained more knowledge in many of the technology and machine here while participating the Meister Program.

AG would be the right place for us to gain experience and good learning environment, such as working in Plastic Injection Department (automotive replacement parts)

Before joining this company, I myself was lacking of skill and experience in plastic injection. And today, I become more confident and experienced in robots and also plastic injections machines.
