TVET has been a subject that has been debated in may forums and the Government of Malaysia too have had many of its ministries such as Education, Youth & Sports, Entrepreneurship, Agriculture and Human Resource just to name a few. In many ways, engineering based TVET training too has found a place in the midst of the holistic framework. Fundamental aspects such as direction, quality of training, branding and marketability are some issues that require serious looking into.
