This pilot study is to get feedback / input on items for nine (9) domain indicators that will be used for the determination of learning content in the equivalence checking between the skills and the academic for the APEL process. APEL helps in opening opportunities for individuals with the experience of gaining access to higher learning institutions as well as obtaining credit in learning through equivalence checking. The findings show that all the items in the Content Learning Indicator in equivalence checking between skills and academic for the APEL process are very appropriate. The study is aimed to fulfill the development and implementation of the APEL system in Malaysia with the construction of a structured assessment tool that can determine the learning content of a module for equality research between the areas of expertise to the academic field. The objective of this study is to determine the items for each indicator used in learning content in equivalence checking between the skills into the academic. The importance of this study is to facilitate a person with the skills and experience to continue learning to a higher level and to cultivate lifelong learning. At this pilot level, researchers have developed items for indicators that can determine the learning content of a module for the equivalence checking between the areas of expertise to the academic and the improvement studies should be carried out to carry out a real study.
