Through multiple regression analysis, the finding showed that some demographic factors (worker characteristics and work place)were significant at predicting the computer usage attitude, computer facility and technology access. the finding also showed that there was a high level of e-training readiness among industrial workers in the aspect of computer usage attitude. But the aspect of computer literacy, computer facility, and technology access showed only a moderate level of reediness. In general, the e-training readiness level of among industrial workers is still moderate. This situation should be overcome in order to ensure that the e-training approach has been emphasized in Malaysia Occupational Skills Development and Training Master Plan 2008-2020 would be implement successfully.
