Students will receive on-site training at the Phnom Penh Tower through an agreement with the construction company.
Construction and engineering students from the National Technical Training Institute will be exposed to new building techniques through an agreement signed with the construction company behind a new skyscraper development in Phnom Penh.
AMCO Constructions Co, a member of South Korea's Hyundai Motors Group, signed an agreement with the institute April 29 that granted its students access to the Phnom Penh Tower building site.
The 22-storey office building on Monivong Boulevard is owned by Korean company C&D Global. Construction began in December 2008 and is scheduled to be completed in 2011.
Sherk Hee-wang, AMCO's on-site director, promised in a statement to do his best to teach the students the latest construction and engineering techniques.
Yok Sothy, deputy director at the institute, thanked AMCO for opening up the site to the institute's students.
The National Technical Training Institute is a state-owned educational institute under the direction of Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training. It was officially opened in December 1999, before which it was known as Preach Kossomak Technical and Vocational Training Center.
