Our Managing Director Er. Tan Seng Chuan, who is also the chairman of Chartered Engineering Technologist and Technician Accreditation Board (CETTAB) of the Institution of Engineers, Singapore, opened the launch of the Chartered Engineering Technologist and Technician Certification Scheme last Friday, 22 January 2021. This scheme provides a skills-based route that allows technologists and technicians to gain greater recognition for their skills and experience for progression in their careers, regardless of their educational background. With the implementation of this new scheme, budding engineers can find more opportunities to build their career in the industry.
Er. Tan commended this scheme for giving recognition to competent professionals in the industry, encouraging a culture of lifelong learning, and promoting skills-based career progression. He is hopeful that this certification scheme will help to increase recognition and career prospects of Singapore’s engineering community beyond its shores through the Mutual Recognition Agreement with other countries in the region.
TEMBUSU Asia Consulting is delighted for the launch of this scheme, which aligns with the United Nations’ SDG #4 “Quality Education” that seeks to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education as well as promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all.
