Process Industry


Singapore’s fast-growing process industry is fuelled by international investment in new projects and driven by increased demand across the region.

The Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications System for Process (Process WSQ) comprises key competencies and qualification pathways for sectors such as chemicals, engineering services, pharmaceuticals & biologics, and environmental technology.

These pathways cover all major occupations in the process industry from operational, supervisory, to managerial levels.

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

  • Engineering Services
  • Chemicals
  • Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
  • Biologics
  • Environmental Technology

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.
