The main purpose of this MOA is to launch the Property Development Course that will be carried out by TAR UC. This course will provide the much-needed manpower for the property industry. It will also help in training the next generation of property developers.
This will not only create more job opportunities but will also help in the economic development of Sabah.
According to Professor Ir Dr Lee Sze Wei, President of TAR UC, this Property Developer Course will equip the public or practitioners with the required skill-sets that will better prepare them for the journey of property development.
The course will be conducted locally via a hybrid learning mode; that is by online platform or face-to-face in a conducive class environment provided by TAR UC.
“We can certainly look ahead towards greater progress and collaboration to contribute to the property development industry in the state of Sabah.”

“Within the course, attendees will have a thorough understanding of how to minimise property and construction risks, leveraging finances, leveraging expertise and budgetary measures,” he stated.
The mentioned courses will have approximately 44 to 59 contact hours in total and will be conducted in a hybrid manner to adhere to and minimise COVID-19 infection rates, as well as accommodate attendees who currently have full-time professions.
