Our Training Program
We offer our members access to business training of different kinds. For some members this is included in their package. We plan to offer training through on-line facilities and through some face-to-face sessions. We offer self-learning arrangements, but we are also arranging access to accredited training provided by registered training organizations and academic institutions.
The APEC G-16 FCCIS initiative has a particular emphasis on e-commerce. We observe that as the Small and Medium Enterprises progress to final stages of implementing their full e-commerce solution, the need for HR to be trained to manage their respective IT department becomes a paramount importance. ICT Australia aims to provide the SME consortium's IT needs, such as e-commerce solutions and payment gateway.
In some countries, the educational level of average SME member is relatively low compared to bigger corporations, particularly in the field of IT. As a case study, currently BRI, an Indonesian bank, has made 43 training centers available for training, and a full e-commerce center that can train 30 trainees per classroom. The training centers are spread throughout the Indonesian archipelago. These SME centers primarily cater for their members to transact, hold seminars, training and meeting venues for interaction between the banks and their account holders, an estimated total of 30 million clients. In terms of prospective SME-members, an annual 5% growth in demand for IT and management skill training is anticipated. This does not include the training needs of other banks in the region. Recently the Indonesian Government has custom-built a central headquarter for Small and Medium Enterprises called SMESCO, an entity under the Ministry of Cooperative.
The Indonesian program has been very successful, and SME-CENTER Australia is drawing on the lessons learned and the education approach adopted to offer training to other APEC SME-CENTERS. The basic training modules we support are:
