HRDF Training Program (Malaysia)
Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) or Kumpulan Wang Pembangunan Sumber Manusia is an agency under the purview of the Ministry of Human Resources Malaysia.
Governed by the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad Act 2001 (PSMB Act 2001), HRDF was given the mandate by the Malaysian Government to catalyze the development of a competent local workforce that will contribute to Malaysia’s vision of becoming a high-income economy.
Since its inception, HRDF has evolved from managing a sizeable fund to becoming a one-stop-center for providing novel human capital development solutions to its registered employers and the critical mass of Small, Medium Enterprises in Malaysia.
