Mapex in Lae graduates 350 students


MAPEX Training Institute Lae campus graduated 350 students from its fifth plant operator and motor vehicle driving course graduation yesterday at the Lae Secondary School multi-purpose hall.
The establishment of the campus in Lae was at the request of Governor Ginson Saonu to implement his zero-dropout education policy through continuous commitments in sponsorship.
The campus in Lae is located on Vee St, Top Town and offers courses in business studies (accounting, business management, human resource management and sales and marketing), occupational health and safety (level one-four), plant, motor vehicle operation and information technology.
The institution plans to establish a marine industry department that will cover courses in shipping, customs and logistics.
According to Lae campus principal Isaac Tokoi, the institution has soft skill training courses for corporate houses which would run from December to January and had gone to businesses to conduct training.
Tokoi told The National that even though Mapex was a private institution, they were under the National Training Council and had partnered the Government and were into the second phase of the programmes with the Office of Higher Education.
“We just want to work collaboratively with the Government through the private-public partnership and achieve some of these plans,” he said.
“For Lae, in these two years, we have seen changes in mindsets of some of the youths, especially those living in the settlements who appreciated the opportunity to come to the training and then bring changes back to their communities where they live to minimise growing criminal activities and poverty.”
