This research is to highlight on the use of eProfiling as the portal of TVET instructors as well as to study on the effectiveness of this system throughout the ministries involved in this project. The methodology used in this research includes the frequency study and partial least square (PLS) modeling for the effectiveness of the portal to its users. The eProfiling portal was built with subtlety and tangibility producing comprehensive technical instructors’ profiles in this country. The number of profiles keeps growing in accordance to the growth of industrial sectors within the country’s occupational framework and trade analysis.
