Training and Development
Why It Matters
As a key infrastructure builder, Gamuda conducts high-risk and high-skilled construction works at densely populated areas. Therefore safety is important and we need to ensure our workers are well equipped with the specific knowledge and safety awareness to operate at our project sites, and that the level of competency amongst them is consistent. Establishing our own training centres that cater to the specific requirements of our projects have led to increased work efficiency and allowed us to be more professional as we execute the infrastructure projects.
On the ground for our various projects, we strive to equip all our employees with proper and structured training before they begin work as this is important to ensure all the tools, equipment and machineries are operated in a safe manner. Through proper training, we could reduce downtime and maintenance cost while ensuring the smooth operation throughout the project duration.

Establishing our training centres that cater to the specific requirements of our projects have led to increased work efficiency and allowed us to be more professional as we execute the infrastructure developments. Our training and development initiatives include the below.
CMP is offered via the Construction Training Unit (CTU) to boost the quality of our managers by utilising real site work exposure to train young site supervisors and engineers. This programme facilitates training with internationally benchmarked construction skills adopted from the best practices in Australia, Europe and Singapore, and accredited by CIDB for Civil and Structural or Building and Architectural Works.
In 2011, Gamuda set up the world's first Tunnelling Training Academy, upskilling over 1,000 trainees in the highly specialised field of the tunnelling industry. The training courses designed in collaboration with international experts from Siemens, Bosch, to Herrenknecht from Germany.
Established in 1997 to streamline the different competency levels of crane and earthmoving plant operations in Malaysia, GPOS has trained more than 45,000 trainees. GPOS trained as many as 75 percent of Malaysia's certified crane operators.
Established with the aim of training over 1,000 employees and subcontractors from 2020-2022 to be able to design and operate automated process using BIM software for our projects.
Established in collaboration with CIDB and National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as a pioneering institution to elevate the Occupational, Safety and Health (OSH) standards. Training programmes are focused on developing skills and competency in high-risk activities, with training based on the Construction Skills Certification Scheme, Master Trainer Programme and Safety Performance Assessment Scheme.
