EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES OF THE INCORPORATED SOCIETY OF PLANTERS
The Incorporated Society of Planters (ISP) was established in 1919 for the development and advancement of the professional interest of those involved directly or indirectly with the plantation industry. Its primary objective as envisaged in the original Memorandum of Association; "To promote the advancement and facilitate the acquisition of that knowledge which constitute the professional qualification of the Planter" furtherance of this objective, the ISP established the Technical Education Scheme (TES) in 1928. The TES became the avenue through which to pursue and obtain professional qualifications at the Licentiate level(LISP)or at the Advanced Diploma level (AISP). In addition, to create a group of technocrats and professionals within the industry, the ISP in collaboration with University Putra Malaysia launched the Masters in Science in Plantation Management (MScPM) in 1997.
While catering for the advancement of its own members through the TES (via Diplomas, Fellowship, and Masters) the ISP also recognises the need to train the general staff of the plantation industry. The ISP through its subsidiary company ISPM(M) Sdn Bhd, has developed two programmes to cater for the needs of the planting industry.The first level is the competency based Certificate in Plantation Practices(CPP) which is targeted towards fresh school leavers who have an affinity and desire to take up jobs in the plantation industry and the second level is the Certificate in Plantation Management(CPM) which is a stepping stone for those in the general staff category in furtherance of enhanced knowledge and career prospects in the industry.The planting industry, be it on our own soil or overseas look for managers with qualifications such as these. These qualifications will prove worthy for those who seek greener pastures in their career path.
