The Myanmar Garment Human Resources Development Center (MGHRDC) is a full-time training facility in north Yangon. MGHRDC offers two regular courses free-of-charge for garment sector workers:
- 10 day basic sewing training
- 10 day supervisor training course
Workers who complete these foundational skills courses are better able to qualify for higher paying positions in the garment sector. Additionally, MGMA’s member factories benefit from a steady stream of qualified sewers and trained floor supervisors.
Future plans are being explored to introduce additional regular courses to MGHRDC. In the mean time, most other courses and lectures are on an ad hoc basis and are typically supported by outside experts. For instance, in 2014 the Japanese development organization HIDA sponsored several 4-day courses on sewing machine tuning techniques, taught by experts from Juki.

Human Resources Training
MGMA provides a fulcrum of support for Myanmar’s garment factories via the Myanmar Garment Human Resources Development Center (MGHRDC). This is a vocational school started with generous support from the Government of Japan. Current courses include basic sewing training and supervisory training.
In late 2014, we are planning to develop courses focused on providing a nationally recognized vocational certification for sewing machine mechanics, as well as improving the scope of offerings for middle management human resources management and productivity management training.
