The Labour Skills Accreditation Association (LSAA) said it will only allow vocational training institutes in Yangon to issue skills certificates to labourers.
As the government aims to open six testing centres to issue skills certificate to workers, only Yangon based training schools will be recognised to run as testing centres.
To give accreditation to the testing centres, the Association started scrutinising the vocational training schools at the end of last month.
It said it will recognise schools based on facilities, equipment, location and area. Successful centres will be recognised as a testing centre by the relevant ministry.
Over 40 training centres have submitted their applications to LSAA to get recognised as government accredited certificate issuers, LSAA said.
The vocational training centres in Myanmar have been going through financial difficulties for quite some time and have been unable to properly take classes, according to local media reports.
However, according to LSAA standards, training centres need to have enough facilities for the student and the founders need to have enough funds to support the centre.
The Association started inspecting vocational training centres in the first week of November to check those irregularities and will carry out regular checks once in every three months, it said.
