BLSC: a skill-building tool with INTERNATIONAL APPEAL

Posted on Feb 01, 2019

By Lawrie Cross - General Manager Member Advisory Services, Master Builders

A group of Malaysian construction directors has paid a third visit to the Building Leadership Simulation Centre (BLSC) with plans to make an important decision. The seven directors, representing the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia, were in Melbourne from Kuala Lumpur in October 2018 to evaluate the potential of a facility like the BLSC to offer education to construction companies in their home country.

The group visited a simulated building site with actors, for a role-playing scenario requiring fast-thinking, decisive action and problem-solving skills.

Highly realistic, simulated exercises are a specialty of Master Builders’ training, with the aim of demonstrating participants’ level of detail and instruction.

CIDB Malaysia and other similar industry groups look to the BLSC as a leading-edge training provider that can help them realise ambitious goals for up-skilling efficiently and at a relatively large scale. The centre can help international industry groups develop their own similar facilities, with the tours helping to reinforce the benefits of such an investment. The BLSC provides broad-spectrum training to the building and construction industry, as well as other sectors such as manufacturing, materials suppliers and higher education, highlighting the adaptability of the training to meet individual clients’ needs.

For information on how the BLSC can improve skills among your workforce telephone (03) 9411 8000.
