A 3-day oil palm operations training was conducted from 17-19 June 2014 for the Group’s oil palm plantation staffs to acquire new knowledge and skills relating to oil palm operations and also to reinforce what they already know. Noteworthy were the tips and experiences passed on by the trainer (who has 44 years of knowledge and experience of oil palm operations) which were priceless.
Being an intensive training course it covered all the main aspects of oil palm operations including pest control, manuring and harvesting in the first 2 days and with practical field lessons on the last day. The participants were given simple tests after each lesson to reinforce what they had just learned. No doubt the participants came out of this training better informed and better equipped to carry out their tasks.
