Our philosophy at the farm is that the person closest to the shrimps must be the most knowledgeable. Which is precisely why Blue Archipelago has implemented a training program, fondly known as CISA (Certificate in Shrimp Aquculture) to equip the wokers with vital skills and knowledge in shrimp aquaculture that meets the world standards.
The 4-level CISA is a carefully designed program in collaboration with Universiti Putra Malaysia. It is supported by Malaysian government bodies such as Northern Corridor Implementation Authority and the Department of Fisheries; and recognized by the Malaysian Ministry of Human Resources.
CISA focuses on both the technical and soft skills in areas relating to shrimp aquaculture as well as personal management and team building. It aims to create a new age farm workers and transform farmers from being just manual labourers to knowledgable workers. Upon successful completion of all stages, participants will be awarded a certificate which is equivalent to a Diploma.
CISA has been accredited for the following :
- Category ‘A’ Facility under the Training Facilitator Registration Certification from the Human Resource Development Corporation.
- Registered to offer, administer and assure the quality of National Dual Training System for Marketing Representative (Food Distribution) and Marketing Supervisor (Food Distribution) from the Department of Skills Development.
