Register For Occupational/Industry Standard And Practices

  1. This section of the TVET portal provides lists of Occupational/Industry Standards and Practices (OISP) to be selected and utilised by all TVET providers and relevant stakeholders as a basis of curriculum development and delivery for TVET programmes.

  2. OISPs are Occupational/Industry Standards and Practices which are certified, recognised and endorsed by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and Department of Skills Development (DSD). OISPs are to be used as a benchmark in determining an individuals performance in a specific field/discipline. The Standards underlined the expectation of achievement and the amount of knowledge and skills required to perform effectively as described by the industry.

  3. COPTPA requires that all TVET programmes must be considered only if OISP are used as a basis for curriculum development.

  4. The OISPs listed in this section were developed by experts from different areas of expertise and have been deliberated by Jawatankuasa Teknikal Bersama (Joint Technical Committee, JTC) Jaminan Kualiti Tunggal TVET. COPTPA states that National Occupational Skills Standard (NOSS) is one of the recognised OISP.
