The research design used for the study was a survey. The estimated population of the respondents is 1430 comprising 63 students, 17 technical teachers, 40 master craftsmen and 1310 apprentices. The entire population of the respondents was used except that of the apprentices that were subjected to stratified random sampling method. The instrument was subjected to reliability test using Split-half method and Spearman Prophesy Brown Formula and the coefficient was found to be 0.82. Results of the study showed that the basic requirements for training the apprentices and technical college students are absent which makes skills acquisition not only difficult but impossible.
