Mohd Reza Suhaidi TETA Recipient
Aspiring engineer Mohd Reza Suhaidi shares about how the Tripartite Engineering Training Award helps him prepare for a career in the maritime industry.
"A key feature of TETA is that its cadets are required to be given training berths and employment opportunities by shipping firms before the programme commences. This is something that Reza, who is employed by shipping firm AP Moller-Maersk, especially appreciates."
