Batam – Two subsidiaries of PT Pertamina Hulu Indonesia (PHI), namely PT Pertamina Hulu Mahakam (PHM) and PT Pertamina Hulu Sanga Sanga (PHSS), in collaboration with SKK Migas Kalimantan Sulawesi (Kalsul) Representation, conducted vocational training and certification for 20 individuals from Kutai Kartanegara Regency (Kukar), East Kalimantan. The training spamming lasted 3.5 months in Batam, Riau Islands, and began on October 18, 2023.

During the inauguration and release event on January 29, 2024, participants officially received certifications from the National Professional Certification Agency (BNSP) and international certification from The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB).

Frans Alexander A. Hukom, Head of Communication Relations & CID PHM, expressed that this vocational training program exemplifies the company's commitment to enhancing human resource capacity, particularly among young people in PHM's operational areas.

"This training and certification represent the implementation of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance management, particularly in the social aspect concerning community impact and contributing to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially Goal 4 related to Quality Education," explained Frans.

All selected participants hail from Kukar Regency, including three districts surrounding PHM's operational zones: Anggana, Samboja, and Muara Jawa. This vocational training initiative signifies a tangible effort by SKK Migas Kalsul and PHM to enhance the quality of human resources in the upstream oil and gas sector while supporting the Kukar Regency Government's "Kukar Siap Kerja" Program. This collaboration marks the first joint endeavor between the upstream oil and gas industry and the Kukar Regency Government in organizing vocational training and obtaining international certifications.

The participants underwent vocational training and certification for Welder 4G SMAW. Upon completion, they will undergo a series of job interviews at several subcontractor companies of Petrotekno, an international operation and maintenance skills provider located in Batam.

In his speech, the Head of the Formalities and Communication Department of SKK Migas Kalsul, Wisnu Wardhana, expressed hope that this program could support the Kukar Ready for Work Program, enabling participants to contribute nationally and internationally.

"After graduation, participants receive certificates recognized globally as international welders. This is certainly a source of pride," said Wisnu.

He encouraged participants to maintain their enthusiasm for learning and working as an appreciation for the opportunities gained and the hard work

invested. This training provides initial preparation to compete in the job market and strive for a better future.

Acting Head of the Transmigration and Manpower Office (Distransnaker) of Kukar Regency, M. Hatta, underscored the significance of youth involvement in natural resource management and the necessity for human resource readiness to occupy positions not only at the local level but also on a national and international scale.

Distransnaker received appreciation from the Kukar Regency Government for its role in reducing the unemployment rate from 4.15% to 4.04%. "Therefore, vocational training programs like this will continue to be implemented and improved," he emphasized.

Meanwhile, the Manager of Communication Relations & CID at PHI, Dony Indrawan, reaffirmed PHI's commitment to implementing diverse CSR programs, including those in the economy, education, health, environment, and disaster management fields.

"At PHI, we persist in implementing diverse CSR programs to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We also apply social and environmental innovations in the Company's CSR programs to provide significant and sustainable impacts on society," he said.

Enhancing local human resource capacities through vocational training programs like this is one of the focuses of PHI's CSR program management in the education sector, aiming to support the emergence of competent, competitive, and independent young generations.

"We believe that the success of the company's CSR programs stems from collaboration between the company and all stakeholders and all stakeholders, especially the community and the government. Therefore, in this program, we are collaborating with SKK Migas and the local government of Kukar," he concluded.
