KUCHING: Twenty women of Taman Sepakat Jaya, Demak Laut here attended a certification course at Santubong Community College recently.

Demak Laut assemblyman Dr Hazland Abang Hipni said the course was an initiative of the Demak Laut service centre in empowering its community with business skills for their future.

“The certification course involves several villages in the constituency.

“The main purpose of organising it is for the development of new skills among Demak Laut residents, such as making fresh cream cakes,” he said.

Dr Hazland said apart from baking, various kinds of courses are also being held at the community college, adding that certificates will be given to each participant.

He added that the courses will not only be limited to women, but would be open to youth as well.

“We also open other courses to youth in line with the needs and current market demand.

“Recently, youth of Kampung Tabuan underwent the air-conditioning installation course, which is currently in high demand,” he said.
