Institut Teknologi Petroleum PETRONAS (INSTEP) is a state-of-the-art technical training institute owned by PETRONAS Technical Training Sdn Bhd (PTTSB). Established in 1981, INSTEP was set-up with the aim to accelerate human capital development to support the growth of PETRONAS as well as Malaysia’s oil & gas industry. Currently, the training institute also serves international clients from more than 15 countries as part of its aspiration to be “A Leading Partner of Choice in Oil and Gas Technical Learning and Certification”.
INSTEP’s learning experience and module offerings have since transformed with the launch of the integrated Upstream Downstream Training Plant (UDTP) on March 27, 2014, making a phenomenal shift in learning. Unlike a commercial plant, the UDTP, first of its kind in the world, simulates real plant scenario to enhance the competency of learners through hands-on training and experiential learning for safe, efficient and responsible exploitation of hydrocarbon resources.
