The PSDC (Penang Skills Development Centre) was established in 1989 and is the first tripartite, industry-led skills training and education center in Malaysia.
Since its inception, the PSDC has grown phenomenally to become the premier learning institution in the country, dedicated to meet the immediate human resource needs of the business community and to support and strengthen business requirements. It has attained both national and international recognition as a truly successful example of shared learning and a model institution for human resource development to be emulated within and beyond Malaysia. Over a period of 20 years, the Centre has trained over 150,000 participants through more than 7,000 courses. Some of the PSDC members include Advanced Micro Devices, Intel Technology, Penang Seagate Industries, Robert Bosch and many others multinational companies.
Sylvac SA is very proud to be partner and sponsor of this important education institute which uses our Sylvac instruments as part of their teaching. Recently they have launched a new course, Certificate in Quality Assurance Technology. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to develop inspection checklists based on requirement and apply SPC tools in their work. For further data analysis, they are using our Sylvac SYLCONNECT software to visualize the result in real time and export the data to Excel for reporting purpose. PSDC have installed a total of 50 licenses in their computer lab for training purpose.
