Eligibility For Training Grant
Employers registered and / or incorporated in Malaysia who have registered with PSMB and pay the HRD levy immediately upon registration are eligible to apply for training grants (financial assistance) to defray all or a major portion of the “allowable costs” of training their employees. Training must be in the area of direct benefit to their business operations. Financial assistance is, therefore, not given to individuals who enroll and finance their own training programmes, whether partially or fully, and subsequently requested their employers for sponsorship. Neither is financial assistance given to employers who bear the cost of training after the successful completion of training by their employees.
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.
Claims For Training Grants
Claims for training grants for completed programmes in the year should be submitted not later than 30 June of the following year. Financial assistance in respect of approved “allowable costs” will be reimbursed on a claimed basis. The amount reimbursed is subject to the approved amount or actual expenses borne by employers, whichever is the lesser and to the availability of funds in the employers’ accounts when claims are submitted to HRDF
