MRT Young Entrepreneur Programme (MYEP)
MRT Young Entrepreneur Programme (MYEP) is a programme pledged by Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp), Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Berhad (PUNB) and Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia which will see fresh Bumiputera graduates becoming Young Contractors.
The selected participants will undergo intensive and hands-on training for a year where they will acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to become entrepreneurs in the construction industry.During the training period, assessments/evaluations will be conducted and successful candidates will need to form companies with assistance from CIDB/PUNB to vie for contracts which are under the MRT Project.
The first batch of MYEP was recruited in 2013 in conjunction with the construction of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) Line. 20 participants graduated and they formed 13 companies which were subsequently awarded contracts by the Work Package Contractors (WPC) of the SBK Line.
60 young graduates will be selected for the second batch, MYEP II to vie for 50 confirmed contracts.
MYEP II has a robust 12-month programme which include six-month intensive professional construction industry training sessions by CIDB, three-month management and motivational training course by PUNB and three-month site attachment supervised by MRT Corp and its Project Delivery Partner.
