4. What types of courses are offered at MIS?
Courses are generally classified into 2 main categories, WSQ and non-WSQ.
Effective from Jul 2016 onwards, MIS has ceased the offering of WSQ courses.
All courses offered on our website are classified as non-WSQ courses.
5. What is the difference between WSQ and non-WSQ courses?
WSQ courses are developed based on WDA's competency guidelines and standards. Participants are required to complete assessments (i.e. written assignment, oral interview or presentation) to be certified "Competent". Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be awarded with a Statement of Attainment issued by WDA.
There are no formal assessments for non-WSQ courses. Upon successful completion, participants will be awarded with a Certificate of Attendance issued by MIS.
SDF Funding and Absentee Payroll schemes differ between WSQ and non-WSQ courses.
6. What is SDF Funding and how much is it? Who is eligible and how to apply?
SDF Funding is a grant given by WDA to help companies defray their training costs. The SDF grant for non-WSQ courses is $2 per training hour.
Courses which are supported by WDA are indicated with an asterisk (SDF-Approved).
Only company-sponsored Singaporeans and PRs are eligible for SDF funding. All SDF Funding applications must be submitted by the company's management representative via www.SkillsConnect.gov.sg for WDA's approval.
Aside from SDF Funding, companies can also tap into PIC Grant (given by IRAS) for the balance of the course fee paid. Read more.
7. When can I apply for SDF Funding?
You can submit the application via www.SkillsConnect.gov.sg from 30 days before or within 30 days after the course start date.
To facilitate our billing process, all SDF Funding applications must be submitted before the deadline stated in our confirmation email for nett billing (course fee after 7% GST, less SDF funding).
For applications submitted after the deadline, we will proceed to bill the course fee in full (without funding). The approved funding amount will be refunded via cheque upon receiving full payment for the course.
8. Which courses are eligible for SkillsFuture Credit? Who is eligible and how to apply?
All SDF-Approved courses are eligible for SkillsFuture Credits.
Eligible Singaporeans (aged 25 and above) will be able to use their credits to pay for the course fee. You can log into your SkillsFuture account at www.skillsfuture.sg/credit via SingPass to check on your balance and/or transfer the credits.
NEW! Effective 19 May 2017, participants will no longer be able to transfer the SkillsFuture Credits to themselves. All SkillsFurture Credits will be transferred from SSG directly to Training Providers prior to the course. Should you wish to use any SkillsFuture Credits to offset the course fee, please indicate accordingly during registration.
9. Are the courses eligible for Productivity & Innovation Credit (PIC) Scheme?
Yes, companies can enjoy 400% tax deductions and/or 40% cash payout for investment in innovation and productivity improvements under the Productivity and Innovation Credit (PIC) scheme. The tax benefits under PIC are available from Years of Assessment (YAs) 2011 to 2018, for training expenses incurred.
