During the two years of studies the boys are trained in the areas of milling, lathe, grinding and drilling to become a machinist. They also learn basic technical drawing. They can expose themselves to production through some incoming customer jobs. They receive additional training with CNC (Computer Numbering Control) and EDM (Electrical Discharge Machine).
The staffs are involved in the different operations of the workshop but each is specialized in a particular area (1st Year, 2nd Year, CNC, drawing milling, lathe).
Previously there were three certificates for each category: H-010 (milling), H-011 (lathe) and H-012 (grinding). Now, they combine to become one certificate for General Machinist. The duration is still two years.
We have received Mastercam, a software for designing and CNC programming. The Petronas Twin Towers (10 feet high) built for Bosch, using spark plugs, is a combined project of Welding and Machining Departments and is now in the Malaysian Book of Records.
Graphic Design & Multimedia
Presently, Montfort offers a two year course for boys to be trained in graphic design and multimedia. The boys are trained in a wide range of skills such as desktop publishing, graphic design, web page design and digital video production. The Graphic Design & Multimedia Department has studios which are equipped with the latest computer hardware and software, thanks to the generous support from the public. Indeed, we are able to provide a conducive environment for the boys to be trained in Level 2 (Multimedia Artist).
The GDM Department supplements its teaching by allowing the boys to work on design projects from other departments within Montfort. These live projects provide valuable experience to our boys in their training. We have three instructors to cater for a total intake of over 25 boys, and future intakes are expected to rise due to the increasing demand for IT training.
Hospitality is the relationship between guest and host, or the act or practice of being hospitable. Specifically, this includes the reception and entertainment of guests,vistors, or strangers, resorts,membership clubs, conventions, attractions, special events, and other services for travelers and tourists.
“Hospitality” can also mean generously providing care and kindness to whoever is in need.
The hospitality service industry includes hotels, casinos, and resorts, which offer comfort and guidance to strangers, but only as part of a business relationship. The terms hospital, hospice, and hostel also derive from “hospitality,” and these institutions preserve more of the connotation of personal care.
