This paper evaluates the Rural Labor Force Training Program effects in the case of autonomous minority nationality areas in southwestern frontier region of China by using China’s Rural Household Survey (RHS) micro data. MTE-based semi-parametric method is used to estimate parameters of interest, i.e., ATE, TT and TUT.The decline trend of MTE value respect to U_T, which represents unobservable characteristics of resistance to participating in training, approves heterogeneity of unobservable characteristics given observed variables of farm households. The results of ATE, TT and TUT shows, households who already participate in training gain most than the randomly selected households if they are participants and those who are not participate in training. It also demonstrates that our Rural Labor Force Training Program is effective in Honghe Prefecture and Dehong Prefecture
