CBTF Funds State-of-the-Art Facilities at SJPI

The Competency-Based Training Fund (CBTF) has assisted the SJPI in meeting the needs of industry and the demands of the labour market by providing funding to purchase stated-of-the-art equipment which will be utilized to train Barbadian workers.

Manager of the Competency-Based Training Fund Management Unit, Mr. K. Anderson Lowe, said SJPI had been tasked with taking Barbados through what is known as the fourth industrial revolution (the technological age). "As the premier institution for providing technical and vocational education in Barbados, SJPI must take the lead in getting our workforce work-ready in this new industrial age," he stated.

Mr. Lowe said SJPI had made four successful applications to the CBTF, and had been awarded some $2 million to train, assess and certify just under 200 employees from the local industry. He further explained that included in the awards was funding for the provision of the latest equipment, technology and facilities deemed necessary by both employers and SJPI to deliver ‘fourth revolution’ training.

During the Renaming Ceremony, the Computer Numerical Control Laboratory was renamed the Ullyett and Lenstech CNC Laboratory; the Sound Technology Studio was renamed the A&B Music Supplies Ltd Sound Technology Studio; and the Computer Networking Technology Lab was renamed the Digicel/Actavo Computer Networking Technology Lab.
