The Malaysian Skills Certification System was established in 1993 to replace the National Trade Certification System (Malay: Sistem Persijilan Pertukangan Kebangsaan) as part of a larger reform to streamline the higher and further education systems in Malaysia. The system was also eventually mapped to the Malaysian Qualifications Framework in 2007 providing a framework for the credit equivalency and transfer between the vocational education and training sectors and the higher education sectors.
