Singapore. Komoco Motors Pte Ltd, Hyundai’s dealership here has struck a partnership with Institute of Technical Education (ITE) College West, in a move to nurture a pool of young talent for the automotive engineering sector.

Their move to do so is in-line with the government’s 2030 Singapore Green Plan to get the nation together in a transition towards a more sustainable future. The Green Plan will see all new cars and public transport, registered from the year 2030 onward, will have to be “cleaner-energy” models. The training and developing the skills will be in-line with this initiative.

ITE College West has developed a series of Micro Learning Courses (MLCs) on Sustainable Land Transport Systems, in a bid to enhance the younger generation for an electrification smart labour force. The courses will focus on vehicle electrification, which includes BEVs and Hybrid vehicles.

This is a basic introduction to electrification of automobiles and aimed at achieving two objectives, one is to elevate the technical knowledge of current students in the automotive courses and another is to provide skills upgrade for industry workers who are currently in the automotive sector, as well as those seeking to switch careers. More on MLCs module and online applications for the public can be found here.

“With MLCs, we are able to reach out to a larger community to impart technical knowledge on vehicle electrification. We hope that all MLCs attendees will benefit from our bite sized and easily digestible content, and are inspired to own an electric or a hybrid vehicle over a conventional one.” shared Mr Delvin Lee, Lecturer, Automotive Engineering, ITE College West, and curator of the MLC on Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

Additionally, Komoco Motors supports ITE students through internship placements and employment opportunities that allow students varied opportunities and experiences to grow their life skills, acquire real-life and hands-on experience, and build stronger character, which will guide them to appreciate both the challenges and rewards working in their sector.

Mr Lim Tze Xuan, a 2nd year student, from Nitec in Automotive Technology, completed his 6-month internship in automotive engineering at Komoco Motors. As part of his internship, he assisted the Automotive Engineer to support and troubleshoot hybrid and electric vehicles. For example, on one occasion, Tze Xuan helped to successfully repair a hybrid vehicle. These opportunities in the workshop had inspired him to appreciate the value of hands-on experiences and ignited his passion for automotive engineering work.

Ms Alice Seow, Principal, ITE College West, said, “ITE embraces strong partnerships with industry players such as Komoco to give our students the opportunity to experience real work environments as well as exciting emerging technologies. Such experiences will inspire the younger generation to pursue careers in automotive trade and enhance the overall workforce performance.”

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
