MR Code:
Our training programs have been approved by Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) / Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad (PSMB) with up to RM1300 per day per pax funding support for Malaysia citizens.
The Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) is administered by Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad (PSMB), an agency under the Ministry of Human Resources, via the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad Act, 2001 and was setup in 1993 to provide specialised training grants as an incentive for employers to retrain and upgrade workers’ skills, in line with the needs of their business requirement.
An additional aim was to develop quality human capital and a world-class workforce in order to achieve a high income economy based on knowledge and innovation.
Under the scheme, employers are to identify their workers’ training needs and obliged to pay fully the training programme.
Following prior approval obtained from HRDF, a reimbursement of allowable training costs is made, based on the rate of financial assistance as determined by HRDF.
As the objective of this scheme is to encourage employers to retrain and upgrade their employees’ skills in line with their operational and business requirements, ATD training courses are sure to enhance the abilities of Malaysian businesses in terms of utilising and implementing online platforms and digital technology to develop and grow.
The HRDF application and claiming procedures are all dealt with through the eTRiS system online. For further details on HRDF, please visit the official website.

Types of Schemes:

Employers are encouraged to utilise their levy payments via the following training schemes:
The SBL (Skim Bantuan Latihan) Scheme
The SBL scheme is the main funding scheme of PSMB. Prior approvals must be obtained from PSMB’s Secretariat. Employers are allowed to identify their own training needs and to implement their training programmes to retrain and upgrade their employees’ skills in line with their operational and business requirements. Under this scheme, employers are allowed to conduct training either on-the-job, off the job or a combination of both. Employers may also conduct training by engaging internal, external or overseas trainers. Effective 1 January 2011, trainers or training providers are required to register under Category C before they are allowed to conduct training under the SBL Scheme.
The SBL-KHAS Scheme
The SBL-Khas scheme is mainly to assist employers who are facing cash flow problems to continue with their retraining and skills upgrading of their workforce by using existing levy balances. Under this scheme, employers need not pay training fees to training provider. PSMB will directly debit from the levy accounts of employers to pay the training fees incurred to training providers with the authorisation of the employers concerned. Training programmes that are eligible to be offered under this scheme are public 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 conducted by training providers not registered under this scheme will be rejected.
