From 3 November 2014 onwards, electronic certificates (e-Certs) will be issued to trainees who have attended and attained competency in Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) training modules or have attained full WSQ qualifications.
The e-Certs will replace the current hardcopy certificate issuance process and benefit the following users:
- Trainees – receive notification via email and/or SMS to download e-Certs within two working days upon submission of results by the training organisations and 15 working days for Qualifications or Transcripts following an email request by the training organisations. (Currently, the average waiting time for trainees to receive a hardcopy of their WSQ certificates is three months after the assessments). The e-Certs will be available in the SkillsConnect account of trainees. This will allow you to search and download your e-Certs at your convenience. Trainees will no longer need to be concerned about safekeeping their hardcopy certificates.
- SSG Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) – less manpower and operational costs required to print and coordinate the delivery of hardcopy certificates to trainees.
- Employers – able to verify the authenticity of the e-Certs from potential employees conveniently online here.
