What is the SBL KHAS Scheme and how does it work?
- It is one of the initiatives created by HRDF to support our registered employers, particularly those who are experiencing cash flow difficulties, in training and upskilling their staff in order to meet the operational and business requirements of the company.
- The Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) will pay the course fee (which is subject to a 4 percent service fee) directly to the training providers by deducting the amount from the account of the employers’ levy and providing the other allowances to the employer. The approval of each individual grant application is required before the whole amount claimable may be paid out.
SBL KHAS E-Slip?
- According to Training Provider’s Circular No. 9/2020, we will be extending the SBL KHAS until the end of December 2021, as previously announced. Aside from that, all course registrations under this program will be completely free of charge.
- Following the submission of the course registration form, the Training Provider will receive a pop-up notification indicating that the registration has been successful as part of the course registration process. The Training Provider, on the other hand, is required to manually generate the HRDF E-Slip and email it to HRDF in order for us to continue with the registration process.
