PSDC (Penang Skills Development Centre) was established in 1989 and is the first industry-led skills training and education centre in Malaysia. It is built upon a tripartite partnership between industry, academia, and government. Since its inception, PSDC has grown phenomenally to become the premier talent development 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.
The synergistic tripartite relationship has allowed PSDC to evolve along with the changing needs of the economy and produce industry-relevant students and trainees which are of international standards. In the past 27 years, the Centre has trained over 200,000 participants through more than 10,000 courses; pioneered local industry development initiatives; assisted in the input and formulation of national policies pertaining to human capital development and contributed directly to the Malaysian workforce transformation initiatives.
