Abstract - There are many terms used to describe about On the Job Training (OJT), including Industrial Training, Industrial
Internship, Practicum and many others. It is one of the compulsory courses that all aviation students in University Kuala
Lumpur, Malaysian Institution of Aviation Technology (UniKL MIAT) need to complete for their Diploma or Degree. By
having this training, the students are exposed to the real life experience of being trainees who will integrate the knowledge
and theory that they learned in the classroom and apply practically the skills. Despite having all these advantages of
industrial training, the students still have faced some challenges during their On the Job Training (OJT). This paper aims to
discuss the issues and challenges faced by UniKL MIAT students during their OJT from two different perspectives, which
are from industry supervisor and also OJT students’ perspectives. In order to study those challenges, few in-depth interviews
have been conducted. The results are expected to give some guidelines to improve the quality of the students before they
have their industrial training and the institution can provide more effective preparation to their products to fulfill the
Aviation Industries ‘needs.
