In education, a rapid change in utilising the ICT becomes materialised. In most part, teaching and learning, teaching aids, and assessment, to name some of it, has improved a lot because of ICT.

However, in general the findings showed that majority of the trainees are competence in ICT. One of the identified problems regarding the development of the ICT competency is the accessibility of the facility.
