Despite being an industry pioneer in many areas, ICSA faces a number of issues.
One of them is lack of demand and supply information on labor market. This is an issue because without such information, it is not easy to research and discover new solutions for existing problems.
Second problem is the lack of focused facilities and equipment for such training and education to occur. Despite ICSA housing various cutting-edge technologies for training purposes, the industry has a void when it comes to training. This is the space ICSA is trying to fill.
Creating a smart platform for demand and supply
- ICSA is going to create a smart platform for gathering the information on demand of skilled workers from the industry and also promote the availability of our apprentices in real time. This will serve as a bridge to strengthen the employability of new and our existing apprentices nationwide.
Implementation of new cutting-edge technologies and blended learning
- ICSA is working closely with industry partners to acquire new cutting-edge technologies like Virtual Reality (VR) for HDD & 5G training, Smart Internet of Things (IoT) for connectivity training, latest equipment and facilities extension for our existing and new programmes. This will ensure that our apprentices are well prepared for the existing and new skills demand from the industry.

The market is a growing one, just like the majority of other markets. The global horizontal directional drilling market size reached USD 7.37 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow 13.2% from 2019 to 2025.
Due to an increasing demand in reducing damage to the environment and nuisance to the public to as little as possible, HDD services are at high demand as never before especially in urban areas.
For telecommunication infrastructure, the implementation of the national digital infrastructure plan (JENDELA) is estimated to cost RM 21 billion between 2021 to 2025 under the 12th Malaysia Plan. This will boost up the demand of skills workers for the telecommunication industry to build connectivity on fixed and wireless broadband including 5G infrastructure for getting 5G-ready in 2023.
As the utilities and telecommunications market grows, it is inevitable that the HDD and broadband demand will also grow alongside. With the need for infrastructure development and utility installations, urbanization increasing, the need for HDD and broadband services around the world as well as in Malaysia is expected to grow as well.
The market may be almost saturated with many skill-based academies. But we believe that ICSA has the benefit many steps ahead of our competitors.
We possess the complete Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure for practical training and mainly classroom based only, possibly the first and only in Malaysia. Adding on to this, ICSA is also the first training provider to provide Virtual Reality (VR) in our training programs to allow our students to know first-hand the situation in the industry.
Under VR, we cater to students of Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) to allow them to use industry-grade simulator for machine operator and pilot bore operator.
Apart from that, ICSA also differs from its competitors as it is seen as a one-stop-centre for recruitment, training, and on-job-training to trainee for ensuring their technical knowledge, practical skills and certified to work.
With all these advantages, we believe we are leading the industry, and will continue to do so via our constant push toward greater efforts.
Through out the raised fund invest to ICSA, we are using for:
- Business Expansion: Development on new Programme and build up relevant Equipment and Update or Build up Centre Facilities and Hostel Expansion to full filled industries needed.
- Marketing Expansion: Market Awareness and Brand Positioning Exercises for new and existing Programmes
- Apprentices Promoting: Promotion for Apprentices and Unemployer Graduate about Programmes offered
- Operation and Marketing: Programmes collaboration with government agencies
Via this funding, we are looking to enhance our technology line-up used for training to prep talents with knowledge and skills for the workforce. It is also expected that we will be able to enhance our research and development to provide better methods, outcomes and methods for trainings. We are also hoping to be the catalyst on which our talents realize development excellence and therefore work toward their success in the competitive and challenging industry.
