The respondents were selected randomly from the state of Selangor, Malaysia. The findings of the assessment on reaction which included five sub variables, was on average at a high level. Based on regression analysis: 1) three independent variables (reaction) contributed 21.7 percent to the variances of dependent variables (knowledge); 2) three independent variables (reaction) contributed 19.4 percent to the variances of dependent variable (skills); and 3) three independent variables (reaction) contributed 17.20 percent to the variance of dependent variable (attitudes). These findings suggest that the SBA teacher training program should be continued with strategic improvements to alleviate teachers' knowledge, skills and attitudes to better improved the implementation of SBA program.
