Western Australian indigenous business Carey Training has been awarded a $2.5 million training contract with the Malaysian Institute of Technology Academy based in Kuala Lumpur for the next three years.

Under the agreement, Carey Training, which is a part of indigenous contracting company Carey Mining, will deliver the certificate II in metal roofing and cladding to 25 Malaysian students in Sarawak, East Malaysia.

Carey is a nationally registered training organisation with offices in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane and Darwin.

The students in the program will be job seekers, trainees and some already employed in the manufacturing industry.

Carey Training chief executive Paul Brock said the contract had been 13 months in the making.

“We are hoping that our success will serve as an example for other Aboriginal and smaller mainstream businesses, that if you set an objective, have the right people in place and commit to achieving your goals, then anything is possible,” he said

“We are confident that this venture will be successful and are looking forward to working with the highly regarded MITA to ensure a positive outcome and impact on the Malaysian manufacturing sector.

“Sarawak is the largest of the 13 states in Malaysia and is displaying strong economic growth and this training program will support MITA’s strategic goal of adding value to the economic transformation of the area.”

MITA chief executive Anthony Ng said the academy was looking forward to the new partnership.

“We are excited about this venture with an Australian Aboriginal business and particularly about working with Carey Training, which has an exceptional reputation,” he said

“We expect this to be a long-term relationship that will lead to further collaborative opportunities in Malaysia and other parts of Asia in the future.”
