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.
