Formerly known as Jabatan Tenaga Rakyat (JTR), Jabatan Tenaga Manusia (JTM) or the Manpower Department was established in 1967. The shift in name, which took place in early 2000, was due to the switch of the department's current primary function, which is to provide skills training programmes. In contrast, JTR functioned not only to produce trained skilled work force, but also to carry out job placements based on gathered data.
Now, JTM has produced and is producing skilled workforce for the nation from the certificate right up to the advanced diploma level; and to meet the demands for skilled labour and changes brought about by the rapid advancements in Science and Technology, JTM has set up Industrial Training Colleges nationwide.
