The Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA) has brought positive impacts for Indonesian electrical technicians, giving them the opportunity to access high-quality electrotechnology training. This kind of access is made possible through partnership between Holmesglen Institute in Melbourne, Australia, and PT ODG Nusantara Jaya (ODG), a contractor providing electrical, fire, and mechanical services.

Over the next five years, ODG will collaborate with Holmesglen Institute, which is affiliated with the government of Victoria, Australia, to establish and operate a new training facility in Jakarta. Initially, this training will be available to ODG staff before being opened to the public, with a primary focus on mining companies in Indonesia.

This new facility is a response to the increasing demand for skills in the mining, manufacturing, oil and gas sectors, and others, as well as the need to enhance productivity and workplace safety in general.

“We need to prepare a skilled workforce to build high-quality electrical installations safely while meeting Indonesia’s market demands amidst modernization and development,” Peter Zamparutti, Operations Manager of ODG Nusantara Jaya, said  in a media statement on Monday, February 26, 2024.

With over 41 years of experience in providing technical and vocational training, Holmesglen Institute is one of the most prestigious training institutions in Australia. Each year, more than 23,000 students undergo training across six Holmesglen Institute campuses, covering 43 fields at various levels, from intermediate to technical, vocational, and higher education.

“Holmesglen is pleased to collaborate with Katalis and ODG to provide high-quality electrotechnology training that supports the growth of industries in Indonesia and the development of a skilled workforce,” Mary Faraone, Chief Executive of Holmesglen Institute, said.

The partnership between ODG and Holmesglen Institute is facilitated by Katalis, a business development program formed by the governments of Indonesia and Australia to support the implementation of the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA). This program complements existing Australian government development programs with a commercially-oriented bilateral approach, placing gender equality and social inclusion at its core activities.

Among the activities supported by Katalis are commercial partnerships between vocational training providers from Australia and users in Indonesia.
