Workforce development is one of the main agenda in the Tenth Malaysia Plan (10MP). The main emphasis is on skills training to ensure that the human capital meets the need of the industry. The construction industry is no exception. A quality and skilled human capital are important to ensure that the planned development can be achieved. However, the careers in construction are less preferred by the local youth. Most of the workers in construction industry are foreign. The purpose of this study is to determine the number of local trained workers produced each year by the public construction skills training institutions (CSTI) in Johor. The other objectives are to identify the perception of current trainees toward the construction industry and the reason affecting the trainees to be trained in construction related skills. To achieve the aims of the study, two set of instruments are produced. The study found that, the averages of trained workers produced each year are only 269 people. The survey conducted show that the perceptions toward the career prospect in construction are low and most of the trainees choose to be trained in CSTIs merely because of the benefit received during the training.
