Private Skills Training Institutions? Applications Frozen

All new applications to set up private skills training institutions to conduct courses for the National Vocational Training Council (MLVK) has been frozen by the Human Resources Ministry.

Datuk Abdul Rahman Bakar, the Deputy Human Resources Minister commented that the freeze had been in force since February. A total of 237 private skills training centres were closed for failing to meet the mandatory criteria, two of which are that the courses must be conducted by qualified teachers and a certain required number of training hours must be set for the courses.

Hundreds of such institutions out of the 1,500 and more private skills training institutions registered to conduct these courses are being monitored and the Human Resource Ministry will not hesitate to close them if they failed to comply with the requirements.
