KUALA LUMPUR, 22 Feb 2017:

A subsidiary of Prasarana Malaysia Bhd – Prasarana Integrated Management and Services Engineering (PRIME) will provide training for Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) operation control staff and drivers beginning April.

PRIME chief executive officer Masnizam Hisham said this collaboration was following a memorandum of understanding signed with Akademi Perkeretaapian Indonesia last October to exchange information, knowledge, technical and operational expertise.

She said training would be conducted by the Rail Academy, a training centre under the management of Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd.

“The first batch of 10 train drivers and five controllers will be sent to the Academy, and subsequent batches will follow suit, while adding the opportunity for collaboration in other fields,” Masnizam said in statement.

Previously, Prasarana had secured ties with Saudi Arabia for the operation and maintenance of the Arab Saudi Al Mashaaer Al Mugaddassah Makkah Metro Southern Line railway service since 2015, as well as providing training to Saudi Arabia train drivers for the hajj season.
