The Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training will focus on arranging varied skills training to equip army personnel with tools that they could use for the common good of their units, and develop as life-long assets.

Ministry secretary of state Heng Sour mentioned this at a graduation ceremony for a two-month training course on radio communications and antenna systems installation for commissioned officers, non-commissioned officers and privates in the army. The event was held at the National Polytechnic Institute of Cambodia.

Speaking at the February 10 ceremony held a day after the course completed, Sour congratulated the 74 trainees – from 21 army units nationwide – for studying hard until the end, and suggested that they share with fellow service members the new knowledge and skills acquired, and put them to use while on duty.

Such vocational training means “long-term and sustainable benefits” for trainees, he said, noting that 37 educational institutions under the ministry offer similar courses in a range of other skills.
