FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What qualifications to be a skills trainer?
A: Trainer, in most context of a Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (JPK) Accredited Centre (Pusat Bertauliah/PB), is also usually the Assessor (Pegawai Penilai/PP). Therefore you always hear Tenaga Pengajar in BM. But you really need to understand and be clear of the difference between a Tenaga Pengajar & Pegawai Penilai, which is very important in the context of Malaysian Skills Certfication System@Sistem Persijilan Kemahiran Malaysia.
Similarly, corporate trainers also need a TTT-Train The Trainer certification to be a certified trainer.
So, to be a PP, one needs to have:
1) PP-PPD-PPB induction course cert AND
2) Vocational Training Operation (VTO) cert AND
3) SKM cert in the respective program (ie automotive, food preparation, F&B etc)
*These 3 qualifications applies to a Diploma, Degree, Masters or even PhD holder of academic or skill background. However, if you are just going to be the PP for Diploma Kemahiran Malaysia (DKM) or Diploma Lanjutan Kemahiran Malaysia (DLKM), then Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia (SKM) is not compulsory.
Q: I have working experience but no SKM, how can I apply to obtain SKM?
A: If you have working experience in related trade of the SKM, then you may apply for it via Pengiktirafan Pencapaian Terdahulu (PPT) method. Most of the time, you need to have at least SKM 3, that means a minimum working experience that you need to have is at least 3 years in that trade.
Q: I have many years of working experience (>10 years) in certain trade & would like to be appointed as Pegawai Penilaian Verifikasi (PPV), formerly known as an industry expert (Pakar Industri Negara/PIN)
A: You may get yourself registered in the Directory (DPIN) and with other qualifications such as SKM in your trade AND;
1) PP-PPD-PPB & PPL Induction course cert AND/OR
2) PP-PPT Induction course cert
You can be appointed as External Verifier (Pegawai Pengesah Luaran/PPL) and Assessor for PPT (Pegawai Penilai-PPT) respectively.
The government would pay you an expert allowance fee for your service rendered.
Q: I would like to be a JPK Accredited Centre (PB) to tap/ride on government’s focus & push on TVET (technical & vocational education training). How do I go about it?
A: There’s a list of documents & stringent criteria set by JPK to be an Accredited Centre (PB) for you to comply. You may read up here.
Nevertheless, the 3 key areas are (besides the local council/health
department/bomba approval for the premise):
1) Personnel’s qualifications, each of these requirements:
a) Firstly, Assessor (Pegawai Penilai/PP) – PP-PPD-PPB induction course, VTO & SKM
b) Secondly, Internal Verifier (Pegawai Pengesah Dalaman/PPD) -PP-PPD-PPB induction course & SKM
c) Finally, Centre Manager (Pengurus Pusat Bertauliah/PPB) – Only PP-PPD-PPB induction course cert
2) Teaching materials, generally regarded as Written Instructional Material (WIM)
It is not provided by JPK and has its own set of formats. Therefore, it has to be developed by the centre’s trainers based on the respective National Occupational Skill Standard (NOSS). In other words, the trainer would need to know how to develop the WIM by attending the Vocational Training Operation course over a period of 3-6 months on part-time/weekend basis or Kursus Pembangunan WIM over a 5 days workshop.
3) Tools, Equipments & Materials (TEM)
These are the necessary items in place before accreditation is given so that students would have sufficient hands-on lab/practical training. However, need to refer to respective NOSS for the list of items, as well as their ratio to the number of students intake.
In short, personnel’s qualifications is usually the most challenging requirements for many aspiring JPK centres.
Q: How many personnel do I need to have to set up a PB?
A: Depending on the number of programs & levels, it varies accordingly.
Eg 1: If only applying for one (1) program & one (1) level, just need the following:
1 PPB, 1 PPD & 1 PP
Eg 2: If only applying for one (1) program with two (2) levels, then need the following:
1 PPB, 1 PPD & 2 PP
So, the number of personnel required would change as the number of programs & levels varies (would be explained during the PP-PPD-PPB induction course)
