What are the differences between SBL Scheme and SBL-Khas Scheme?
SBL Scheme requires employers to make full payment for the training programme and reimbursement is based on employer claims. Under SBL, employers are free to identify their own training needs and implement the training programme in stages.
The main difference between SBL Scheme and SBL-Khas Scheme is that employer does not pay the training provider directly under SBL-Khas Scheme, course fee will be deducted from the employers’ account and paid directly to the training provider.
Though most training programmes are HRDF claimable under SBL, only the training programmes that are pre-approved by PSMB are HRDF claimable under SBL-Khas.
