The training arm of Malaysia’s Public Service Department is the National Institute of Public Administration (INTAN). It was established in September 1959 as a small training center at Port Dickson. The centre was then known as the Staff Training Centre. The centre offered training for officers in land administration, financial administration and local government administration. In June 1972, the National Institute of Public Administration was established at Jalan Elmu. This institute provides formal training for government officers. In 1983, INTAN’s training grew rapidly and several branches were established. These include the Northern Regional Campus, INTURA in Sungai Petani (Kedah); the Eastern Regional Campus, INTIM in Kemaman, Terengganu; and the Southern Regional Campus, IKWAS in Kluang (Johor). In 1984, INTAN’s main campus was opened at Bukit Kiara Kualalumpur. INTAN Jalan Elmu became the Central Regional Campus(INTENGAH), in 1998. Two additional regional campuses were established to meet the growing demand for INTAN’s training programs. In 1999, the Sarawak Campus was established in Kuching, Sarawak, while the Sabah Campus was established in Kota Kinabalu in Sabah in 2001.
