Entrepreneurship is basically the ability in creative thinking and innovative behavior that is based on the acquisition of resources, goals, tactics and tips in dealing with business Challenges. For some people who will retire, their views on workload, salary and achievement expectations after retirement will require separate adaptations, given productivity that will not be as much as during the working period. This study seeks to analyze the important role of mastering entrepreneurial expertise through training for prospective retired employees. This study was conducted analytically by interviewing, observing and distributing questionnaires in a training institution in Bandung that specializes in developing and training skills for postemployment employees, including conducting entrepreneurial training for retirement preparation. The results of the study show that not all training results can be applied, where several aspects relating to improving financial management need to be given more attention and assistance. Another finding was the positive attitude of the training participants in the implementation of the training and entrepreneurial abilities shown by the participants to respond positively to some entrepreneurial instruments.
