ABSTRACT 

This research was designed to determine the comparative study of practical skills acquisition in electrical engineering training programme in Accra and Kumasi Polytechnics. The study population was made of 316 and 262 making a total of 578 students in the Department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering from the Accra and Kumasi institutions respectively. A samples size of 25% was randomly selected from the total populations of the two study institutions. A total number of 145 questionnaires were distributed and 123 completed questionnaires were received making a response rate of 84.82%. Out of this, 73 were respondents from Kumasi while the remaining 50 were Accra respondents. The findings revealed that skills 

acquisition provides access to better working and payment conditions, practical training helps in equipping individuals with the essential skills to become useful in the society, and acquisition of skills prepare students to fit in readily employment in all sectors of the economy and revealed lack of training materials in both institutions and related firms. The study recommended that, the Government should increase budgetary allocations for provision of adequate training facilities and resources in the Polytechnics Education to make practicals effective.
