    Abstract

    The failure to contend with fragmented nature of construction and change has often led to mismatches between the training offered and the workforce training needs in the Malaysian construction industry. Consequently, many training initiatives have fallen short of its intended objective. On the premise that the way forward to critically rethink the current training approaches by assimilating best practice training concepts, this paper critically investigates the best practices that can be applied in the training offered to the Malaysian construction workforce. This paper will be looking at various possibility of construction training methods. A best practice framework to underpin effective construction training is proposed at the end of the paper.
