What is The Technical Intern Training Program (TITP)?・About the type of job

2020.04.03

The Technical Intern Training Program supports the transfer of Japanese skills to developing countries through training program schemes.

In November 2017, the Technical Intern Training Law came into effect. We re-regulated many areas of this law that were previously established by Immigration Control Law. The training period is a maximum of five years, and acquisition of skills etc. is based on technical intern training plans.

There are two types of procedures for accepting technical intern trainees: individual enterprise type and supervising organization type.


 

(Supervising Organization Type)

A format whereby non-profit organizations such as business cooperatives and societies of commerce and industry (supervising organizations), accept technical intern trainees for technical intern training at affiliated enterprises (implementing organizations).


(Individual Enterprise Type)
A format whereby enterprises and other businesses in Japan (implementing organizations) accept employees of overseas local subsidiaries, joint venture companies, or trading partners for technical intern training.

 



As of the end of 2016, 3.6% of acceptances were individual enterprise type and 96.4% were supervising organization type (based on the number of technical intern trainees present in Japan).


Technical Intern Training Categories and Status of Residence

There are three technical intern training stages for both the individual enterprise type and supervising organization type:

(Technical Intern Training(i)): induction of basic skills in the first year after entering Japan,
(Technical Intern Training (ii)): increased practical skill acquisition in the second and third years after entering Japan,
(Technical Intern Training (iii)): mastery of learnt skills in the fourth and fifth years after entering Japan.
 

Organizations that provide the Technical Intern Training (iii) are limited to excellent supervising and implementing organizations. They are deemed to satisfy the standards specified by the competent ministries.


Process from Technical Intern Trainee Entry into Japan until Return to Home Country


In order to make the shift from Technical Intern Training (i) to Technical Intern Training (ii), or from Technical Intern Training (ii) to Technical Intern Training (iii), the technical intern trainee must pass the specified Technical Intern Training Evaluation Examination. For the Technical Intern Training (ii), a written test and practical test is taken. For the Technical Intern Training (iii), there is a practical test.

Before completing the Technical intern training(iii), it is necessary for candidates to be examined in the Technical intern training evaluation (practical skill). If the technical intern training period is 5 years, a total of 3 Technical skill training tests will be taken.
