Research conducted on laboratory instrument is performed to pursue broader knowledge that can be generalized and systemized for practical application in the teaching and learning process. Pneumatic Training Instrument (PTI) is an exercise-based laboratory instrument which is employed to develop students' practical skills while conducting experiments in the laboratories. This paper highlights the practical skills stipulated for technology/engineering programs in the PTI laboratory. The laboratory tasks require the students to apply their knowledge and skills on PTI experiments. Students were exposed to the theoretical aspects of PTI through the lectures and later perform the experiments by completing the worksheet instructions on PTI. In regards to their practical skills, assessment is conducted during designations, demonstrations and installations employed by lecturer which must be aligned with the course learning outcomes and teaching and learning in the laboratory. This paper investigates the level of knowledge and practical skills expected of Diploma in Engineering Technology students in two institutions of higher learning. These institutions offer similar PTI course with comparable course learning objectives (CLO), teaching and learning activities and assessment techniques in the Pneumatic Laboratory. Pneumatic is a common module taken by all the technology/engineering students for the both case study institutions. In order to answer the research questions of the study, a qualitative approach was undertaken. The CLO and the course syllabus pertaining to the PTI experiments were analyzed to compare the structure of PTI practice in the institutions. The interface between the theories and practical skills sourced from the lectures, demonstration and practice on PTI will also be discussed in the paper. The finals section of the paper reports the distinctive PTI implementation in both institutions in regards to the teaching and learning activities, assessment and course learning objectives.
