Not sure about short term programmes. There is a 12 month Computer Systems Technician course (Skills Certificate 2) accredited by the Department of Skills Development conducted by SEGi Training Centre in Seri Kembangan and SEGi College KL :

(look under Vocational & Training (http://www.segi.edu.my/faculty/voc_tra/index.htm))

The same programme is also offered by an accredited training centre in Subang Jaya :

Pusat Latihan Teknikal Padusaga
No 32A, Jalan USJ 1/33
Taman Subang Permai
46100 Subang Jaya

Phone : 03.8025.9755

Such courses are usually provided free of charge (ie. its paid for by the Department of Skills Development) or with minimal fees but that seems to be the case only for Malaysian students. I am not sure what the requirements are if the student isn't a citizen.

To see the co-relation between this Skills Certificate programme and the other qualifications, have a look at this write up of the Malaysian Qualifications Framework that I wrote for Wikipedia :

Thanks, Bob! My friend is not interested in the certificate, more on the skill in servicing, repairing, softwares and networking. He operates a cyber cafe over his place.

I'm a little less familiar with informal training but perhaps Padusaga might have the option for short courses as well.

there is always no short cut in learning networking and etc... even you go for short courses, it is not enough for you to learn to operate a cyber cafe

normally the short course will teach you the parts of the computers, how to rip it apart and assemble it back. and also how to remove virus or trace a virus. Also teaches you the basic networking, the different of cables, what is switches, routers and etc.

if your friend want to take a short course so that he can operate a cyber cafe then he is wrong. there is a lot to learn. what if there is a problem with the sound card or even graphic card, will the short courses teach you to troubleshoot it ?? and what if there is some problem with the OS or even the software, will the short course teach?? i doubt so. servicing a computer comes from hands on experience. your friend have to do a lot of hands on.

i believe some IT forumers in here will understand what i meant.
