Furloughed Myanmar workers required to get certificates

Furloughed workers from the cut-make-pack (CMP) industries and factories will need to attend and pass CMP skill courses to obtain certificates, said Minister of Labour, Immigration and Population U Thein Swe.

The minister said arrangements will be made to provide training for these workers with leaves of absence due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. A majority of the workers moving to industrial zones in Yangon are from regions like Ayeyarwady, Bago, and Magwe. Half of them are female workers and most of them have finished elementary and middle education said U Thein Swe during the Myanmar National Skills Standards Authority’s Certificate Awarding Ceremony on January 15.

“These are people working in the CMP and textile industries. We will make arrangements for the development of their labor skills in these regions and states, he said. The National Skills Standards Authority (NSSA) has been providing training and issuing certificates for workers since 2014. They have so far provided training for 16,519 workers in 30 different fields and occupations.

Some 3,000 workers are expected to undergo examination by the NSSA for the 2020-2021 financial year. The Ministry of Health and Sports said this year’s examinations – to commence this month – will be held in accordance with guidelines and instructions from the ministry. Only 20 participants will be allowed to undergo tests at any given time at their respective examination halls and centers in the region
