Aspri president Charles Quek said the new, larger space and increased convenience will provide 48 annual training hours per worker for the 7,900 that will be housed in the dormitory, as opposed to the 16 hours for the 4,000 workers now getting training at the existing IPI facility.
Aspri vice-president Francis Tay said that while priority for training sessions will be given to workers living in the dormitory, opportunities might also be given to other foreign workers if there is spare capacity.
The training sessions will include English lessons as well as industry-specific courses that will be organised in collaboration with the Process Construction and Maintenance Management Committee. //Extracts from The Straits Times
