Port Services


The Port Service Workforce Skills Qualification (PS WSQ) competency framework defines the competencies needed for various port-related job roles.

Allowing for specialisation in areas such as Lashing and Mobile Equipment Operations, the framework facilitates the skills development and career progression of port employees and professionals through competency-based training and by acquiring nationally recognised certification.

The WSQ programmes train you for the skills and competencies required for job roles in the following area:

  • Lashing Operations
  • Mobile Equipment Operations

The WSQ Certifications are awarded by SkillsFuture Singapore, and recognised by Workforce Singapore and the industry.

With the roll out of the Skills Frameworks (SF) in 2016, the WSQ programmes will be progressively aligned to the SF developed for the sector.
