The Brief Profile of PSMB
Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad (PSMB) was established under the Ministry of Human Resources. When initially-formed in 1993, it was known as the Human Resources Development Council (HRDC) or Majlis Pembangunan Sumber Manusia (MPSM), but was later incorporated and known as PSMB.

PSMB’s Objectives
The main objective of the PSMB is the imposition and collection of a human resources development levy from the Employers for the purpose of promoting training of employees in workplace, and the establishment and administration of the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF).

Human Resources Development Fund
The Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) was established under the legal requirements of the Human Resources Development Act 1992 (now known as the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad Act 2001). The HRDF is a pool of funds that comprises Human Resources Development levies collected from employers of the manufacturing and service sectors as listed in the First Schedule of the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad Act 2001 (liable registrants) as well as optional registrants. The establishment of the HRDF is part of the Government’s initiative to encourage the private sector employers in the manufacturing and service sectors to retrain and upgrade the skills of their employees in line with the needs of their business and industrialisation strategy of the country. With effect from January 2005, the HRDF has been extended to include employers from 8 more industries under the services sector. Employers who are registered and/or incorporated in Malaysia and who have registered with the PSMB and fulfilled the payment conditions are eligible to apply for training grants or financial assistance under the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF).

Objectives of HRDF
The objectives of the HRDF are to:
  • Increase the supply of highly-skilled workers.
  • Enhance the knowledge of workers and equip them with up-to-date skills.
  • Prevent the skills of workers from becoming obsolete in a changing technological environment.
  • Upgrade the quality and productivity of workers.
  • Cultivate a training culture amongst employers.
  • Maintain and enhance the competitiveness of Malaysian products through skills retraining and
  • Accelerate the process of technology transfer.
  • Assist in the attainment of the industrialisation objective of the country.
Human Resources Development Levy
Human Resources Development Levy is the mandatory payment imposed by the Government on some specified groups of employers for the purpose of development of their employees. Under the law, certain classes of Employers are liable to pay a Human Resource Development levy for each employee at the rate of 1.0% per annum of the monthly wages of the employee. However, the Minister of Human Resources may, from time to time, by order published in the Gazette, reduce or increase the rate of the levy specified. The Minister is also empowered to exempt fully or partly any of the employers from the payment of this levy.

Classes of Employers to Pay Levy
The following is the groups or classes of Employers that are required to pay levy towards a common pool of funds i.e. Human Resource Development Fund.
  • Employers in Manufacturing Sector
    Under the manufacturing sector, the Class of Employers that is required to pay levy is :
    - Employers with fifty or more employees
    - Employers with ten or more but less than fifty employees and with a paid-up capital of RM2.5 million (RM2, 500,000) and above
  • Employers in Service Sector
    Under the service sector, only those employers having employed 10 or more employees (except the Hypermarket industry*) are required to pay levy. The class of employers include 11 industries and 8 more industries with effect from 1-1-2005. (Kindly refer to Table 1)
  • Other Class of Employers – Option to Pay
    Another class of employers in the manufacturing industry is given the option of registering as a levy contributor with the Corporation. As spelled out in Part II of the First Schedule of the Act, this class of employers includes those with ten or more but less than fifty employees and with a paid-up capital of less than RM2.5 million (RM2,500,000). If they choose to register, they will be imposed a HRD levy in respect of each employee at the rate of 0.5% per annum of the monthly wages of the employee.
Training Schemes Under HRDF
Employers who contribute to HRDF are eligible to access their levy payments by claiming training reimbursements through various training schemes that are implemented by PSMB.

At present, there are 13 training schemes available at PSMB, which are listed as follows:

  • SBL Scheme (Skim Bantuan Latihan)
  • SBL-KHAS Scheme
  • PROLUS Scheme (Program Latihan yang Diluluskan)
  • PERLA Scheme (Perjanjian dengan Penyelia Latihan)
  • PLT Scheme (Pelan Latihan Tahunan)
    - JURUPLAN Scheme (Skim Khidmat Juruperunding bagi Pelan Latihan Tahunan)
  • Joint Training Scheme
  • Graduate Training Scheme
  • Information Technology & Computer-Based Training Scheme
  • Computer-Based Training Scheme (Software Development)
  • Purchase of Training Equipment & Setting Up of Training Room Scheme
  • Special PSMB Training Programmes
  • Apprenticeship Schemes
  • English Language Training Programmes for Workers
  1. SBL Scheme (Skim Bantuan Latihan)
    Prior approval must first be obtained from the Secretariat for programmes/ courses under the SBL Scheme. This scheme enables employers to identify their own training needs and formulate training programmes to retrain and upgrade skills of employees in line with their operational as well as business requirements.

    The training courses can be conducted either on-the-job, off-the-job or even a combination of both so as to suit the requirements of enterprises. Training can be carried out either by their own trainers or by external trainers if there is a lack of internal expertise. Apart from this, local enterprises can also engage and recruit qualified trainers from abroad if local expertise is not sufficient or available.

    In order to qualify for the training grants, the training programmes must be structured and possess the following criteria:
    • Specific training objectives
    • Specific training activities or lesson plans
    • Instructional guides by qualified instructors/trainers
    • Assessment to determine the attainment of training objectives

  2. SBL-KHAS Scheme
    Under the SBL-KHAS Scheme, employers are not required to pay training fees to training providers registered with PSMB. The fees will be paid by PSMB to the training providers concerned on behalf of employers based on claims submitted by training providers, upon the completion of training. PSMB will debit the fees claimed to employers’ levy accounts. For daily allowances claimed which may comprise of food, lodging and transportation including airfare (if applicable), employers are required to submit their claims to PSMB based on stipulated guidelines. Claims must be submitted after the completion of training.

    Training programmes that are eligible  to be offered under this scheme are public programmes and in-house programmes conducted by training providers who are registered with PSMB. Training grant applications submitted by employers for programmes that are not registered or not conducted by training providers not registered under this scheme will be rejected.

  3. PROLUS Scheme (Program Latihan Yang Diluluskan)
    This PROLUS or Approved Training Programme Scheme (ATP) would allow registered training providers to offer training programmes to employers. Training providers can either submit the applications for ATP status along with applications for their registration, or after the Registration Certificates have been obtained.

    Among the examples of training  programmes that are publicly offered under this scheme are the Management/ Administrative Skills, Craft/Technical Skills, Computer-Related Skills, and Productivity-Related Skills.

  4. PERLA Scheme (Perjanjian Dengan Penyelia Latihan)
    This scheme would enable employees to retrain and subsequently upgrade  their existing employees’ skills by paying a small percentage of the approved fees under the PROLUS scheme. Employers are only required to pay between 20- 25% of the training fees, while thebalance can be directly claimed by the training providers from PSMB.

  5. PLT Scheme (Pelan Latihan Tahunan)
    The PLT (Pelan Latihan Tahunan) Scheme is an annual training plans scheme that encourages employers to put up Annual Training Plans. Under this scheme, employers must undertake systematic training needs analysis to ensure that training is conducted on a need basis and in line with their business plans and level of technological adaptations. Employers without the necessary expertise to do so can seek assistance from PSMB through the JURUPLAN Scheme (Consultancy Scheme for Training Needs Analysis). The training plan must encompass at least 10% of the company’s workforce and a minimum of 15% of the organisation’s lower level employees, especially those who only possess SPM qualifications and lower.

  6. Juruplan Scheme (Skim Khidmat Juruperunding Bagi Pelan Latihan Tahunan)
    Under this scheme, employers who have 200 employees and above can apply for consultancy services from training consultants who are registered with PSMB. These consultants will assist employers to identify training needs, systematically formulate training programmes and prepare annual training plans. Prior approval must be obtained from PSMB by the employers concerned and the rate of financial assistance will be determined by PSMB as well. This scheme is a one-off exercise and therefore, the transfer of knowledge and skills from participating consultants to respective employers must exist in the context of ‘change agent/client’ relationships in the preparation of annual training plans.

  7. Joint Training Scheme
    This scheme enables several  employers, particularly those from the SMEs to jointly appoint a training provider to conduct training for their employees. One of the employers will act as the ‘organising employer’ who will determine the type of programme required, engage a suitable training provider and determine the venue for training.

    Apart from this, the ‘organising  employer’ will also be responsible for determining the cost per employee, to enable participating employers to claim the allowable costs incurred upon the completion of training. The number of employees from participating employers must at least be more than 50% of the total participants of the programme. The ‘organising employer’ will be able to claim the allowable costs at the rate of 100%, whilst participating employers will only be reimbursed based on the normal rates of financial assistance approved by PSMB.

  8. Graduate Training Scheme

  9. Information Technology & Computer-Based Training Scheme
    The Computer-Based Training Scheme was implemented in 1995 to further promote ICT/IT  training, enabling employers to set up their own Computer-Based Training Unit, while the Information Technology Scheme enables employers to set up their own IT Training Unit within their enterprises so as to purchase computers worth up to a value of RM25, 000 for every three years.

    In addition, employers are also entitled to receive an  additional financial assistance that is subjected to the maximum of RM25, 000 once in every three years for the purchase of personal computers so as to enable them to set up a Computer-Based Training Unit at their branch offices. However, prior approval by PSMB with regard to such purchase is required.
  10. Computer-Based Training Scheme (Software Development)
    This Computer-Based Training Scheme (Software Development) entitles the employer to  purchase training CD ROMS and softwares without needing to obtain any prior approval from the Corporation, or source external expertise to develop the employer’s own specific computer-based training softwares, where prior approval from PSMB would have to be obtained.

    Employers who are interested to apply for this scheme are  required to prepare a proposal with appropriate justification and duration of development and attach together quotations from three consultants for the development of the system. Meanwhile, the rate of financial assistance is based on skill areas as determined and developed by employers. PSMB has always provided development grants to employers’ associations, to develop specific computer-based training programmes/CD ROMS for the benefit of their members.

  11. Purchase of Training Equipment & Setting Up of Training Room Scheme
    Under this Purchase of Training Equipment & Setting Up of Training Room Scheme, the Small Medium Industries  (SMIs) who have vacant rooms can thus convert them into training rooms by applying for financial assistance offered under the scheme. Besides this, the scheme also enables employers to obtain 80% of the rate of financial assistance for the purchase of training equipment (such as chairs, tables, videos, televisions, white boards, LCD Projectors and OHP projectors) and the setting up of training rooms. The Purchase of Training Equipment & Setting Up of Training Room Scheme is aimed at encouraging employers to conduct more in-house training programmes other than to enhance a training culture amongst them.

  13. Apprenticeship Schemes
    The Apprenticeship Schemes, which are offered by PSMB, is a structured training programme focused on skills training in certain fields for a particular industry. This scheme is executed in accordance with the co-curriculum of the National Skills Standards and the pre-determined training period.
    • Objective of The Apprenticeship Schemes
      The objective for the establishment of this Apprenticeship Scheme is to prepare various skills training (Multi-Skilling) to school leavers at the PMR/SPM level, in sectors such as industrial, hotel, manufacturing, information technology (IT), and transportation, so as to fulfill the need for a skilled workforce in the industrial and service sectors of the country. Besides this, this scheme also enables employers who are registered with PSMB to be actively involved in training activities.

      The apprenticeship schemes are designed and targeted  at the four primary groups of audience, namely, i) the employers, who would send the selected apprentices for training; ii) the training providers, who provide training to the selected apprentices; iii) the selected apprentices who would undergo the apprenticeship training; and iv) PSMB, which manages apprenticeship schemes and accredits training centres for the conduct of the programmes. Through this scheme, which involves a combination of theoretical and practical training, PMR/SPM school leavers or workers who have been successfully selected as apprentices by the employer registered with PSMB, will undergo “Off-The- ob” as well as “On-The-Job” training. “Off-The-Job” involves training at the training centres of training providers that have been accredited by PSMB, while “On-The-Job” training is conducted at the premise of the sponsoring employer. Before being able to successfully complete the training programme, the apprentices will be required to work for the respective sponsoring employers for a fixed period of one to three years, as written in the requirements of the apprenticeship contracts (that is if offered employment).

    • Types of Scheme, Entry Requirements & Duration

      Employers are advised to determine the functions of sponsorships and contact PSMB or any training providers in advance, to obtain advice and guidance, as deciding on the location /premise for the apprentices who will be sponsored by the respective employers.

    • Employer’s Registration With MLVK
      For employers who will be sponsoring apprentices under this apprenticeship scheme, they are required to send their officers, who will be in-charge of supervising the apprentices for the Assessment Officer, as well as the Internal Accreditation Officer
      Induction Course, which are sponsored by MLVK. This course is compulsory for all companies’ officers who would be supervising apprentices during the “On-The-Job” training.

      The Assessment Officer will evaluate and fill in  apprentices’ portfolios based on skills achieved by the particular candidate who undergoes the “On-The-Job” training. On theother hand, the Internal Accreditation Officer will be responsible in accrediting the portfolios. Such assessments would help the MLVK to determine whether the particular apprentice is qualified to be awarded with the SKM Certification Level 1 and 2.

    • Selection Of Apprentices
      Employers can obtain names of apprenticeship programmes’ candidates from the PSMB, as well as from their own resources. Interviews and selection process will be subsequently conducted by the respective employers. Interested candidates are required to fulfill the stated entry requirements.

  14. English Language Training Programmes for Workers
    The learning of the English Language is an investment in the current globalising environment as it augments the value of human capital. Fluency and eloquence means being competitive. In a knowledge-based economy, the economic value of the English Language cannot be underestimated. To be able to succeed in a competitive environment, education and training in the English Language are vitally important for the survival of businesses in the current world market. The implementation of the English Language Training Programmes, namely Adult Literacy and Numeracy (ALN), Communication English for Workers (COMEW) and Business English for Executives (BEE) by PSMB aims to increase the level of English Language profi ciency amongst today’s workforce.

    The programmes implemented under the PERLA Scheme, are subjected to these criteria:-
    • The programmes can be conducted at employers’ premises (in-house with external trainers) or offered at training providers’ premises (public).
    • Financial assistance is determined at 100%. This is in line with the Government’s efforts to promote the English Language.
    • The course fee for the three programmes will be paid by PSMB to training providers concerned and the amounts incurred will be debited to individual employer’s account under the HRDF.
    • Employers can submit claims for “allowable costs” if applicable; upon the completion of each module, subject to the terms and conditions determined.
    • Training providers have two options to check employers’ levy balances and reservations of funds.
      • Funds can be reserved for all three modules prior to the commencement of training and claims must be made upon the completion of each module.
      • Reservation of fund by module is also allowed prior to the commencement of training and claims must be made upon the completion of training.
