Indonesia Energy Ministry: Taking advantage of the LMS E-LINS Platform, 292 Students Take a Guerrilla Program Writing Test
The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) continues to adapt to the development of information technology in carrying out its duties and functions in the energy and mineral sector. One of the innovations utilized is the Learning Management System (LMS) E-Learning For Training & Certification (E-LINS) which was developed by the Center for Human Resources Development for Electricity, New, Renewable Energy, and Energy Conservation (PPSDM KEBTKE). The LMS is used to recruit candidates for the Independent Learning Campus Merdeka (MBKM) program for the Solar Electricity Initiative (Gerilya).
“This E-LINS digital platform is very helpful in facilitating the selection of Guerrilla participants. The existence of this platform is proof of adaptation to technology within the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources,” said the Head of the Communication, Public Information Services, and Cooperation Bureau (KLIK) of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Agung Pribadi, who was met at the Chariul Building Saleh General Secretariat, Jakarta, Monday (23/8).
In the Guerrilla selection process, continued Agung, the E-LINS digital platform was used as the Basic Competency Selection process through a written test. Artificial intelligence (AI)-based automation has shortened the selection time with predetermined academic qualifications. “Participants no longer need to bother coming directly to the location to take the test. And the most profitable is paperless,” said Agung.
Currently, E-LINS has often been used in training and certification in the Electricity and EBTKE sectors. Some of them are technical training on how to save energy in buildings, technical training on ORC-based geothermal power plant design, technical training for energy managers in industry, to technical training on renewable energy-based electrical energy generation technology.
Especially in the selection process for the Guerrilla MBKM program, all stages of selection are based on digital recruitment, starting from the registration stage, written tests, to virtual interviews. “This transformation is part of the adaptation of new habits, especially in the midst of a pandemic crisis,” said Agung.
The MBKM Guerrilla program itself is able to attract the interest of undergraduate and graduate students from various campuses in Indonesia. Opened in just a week since August 13, 2021, there were 634 applicants who entered, 292 of them passed the administration and were entitled to take the written test. Furthermore, only 100 people were netted who were eligible to take part in the interview process where the final 50 participants would be announced on August 25, 2021.
For information, the Guerrilla MBKM program is specifically aimed at active undergraduate (S-1) and exact vocational students to help optimize the use of Rooftop Solar Power Plants (PLTS) in the community and achieve the target of 23% New Renewable Energy (EBT) mix in 2015. 2025.
