region, which took advantage of the fact that Megamas’ operations were, at one time, entirely focused in Brunei Darussalam. This was overcome by the company building up their marketing department, continually emphasising their quality training at competitive prices, and promoting Megamas as a transparent and beneficial training partner.
Megamas now trains outside Brunei; delivering courses in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and China. Megamas also ensures all instructors have attended Train the Trainer courses. In addition, all offshore and HSE instructors have obtained OPITO Competence Assessor qualifications. The defensive driving instructors are all RoSPA-approved, with material handling instructors all LEEA-approved.
As a forward-thinking corporation, Megamas acknowledges that business could potentially be affected by the fluctuations in oil prices and Brunei’s oil production. In addition, increasing competition from the startup of new training providers also pose a threat to the business in Brunei. Measures taken to balance out these threats include plans to start up business in other countries, in particular Singapore and Kota Kinabalu in Sabah.
As models of good governance, Megamas believes that companies need to invest in the quality, motivation and experience of their front line supervisors, and truly build up a strong management culture which is grounded in good leadership and commitment. It also stresses recognition, reward and consequence management based on the provision of clear responsibilities and the elimination of a culture of blame.
