The cost of a complete WSQ training course is listed in the course brochure. Typically, the fees range from S$11,000.00 to S$18,000.00. The cost of a selected module is typically one-fifth of the cost of a complete WSQ course.  As an additional bonus, Singaporean Citizens and Permanent Residents can enjoy course fee funding from the Singapore government.

Course Fee Funding (with effect from 1 January 2017) available for SIMTech's courses is as shown below:


Please note that fees and funding amount are subject to change.

Candidates are encouraged to seek financial sponsorship from their respective employers. Just fill out the relevant section of the application form and have your company agree to its terms and conditions. The completed sponsorship form, together with the course registration form, must be submitted online before commencement of the course.

 

As all course fees at SIMTech are module-based, you can get a refund of modules not attended under certain conditions. Students must email to SIMTech of their intention of dropping out of a module, strictly before classes for the specific module have commenced. No refund will be given should the student wish to withdraw from the module, for any reason whatsoever, once the module has begun.


All candidates are required to pay the nett course fee (after the Singapore government course subsidies, if eligible) before commencing on the course. Exceptions can be made, at SIMTech’s discretion, for deserving candidates. Please contact us for further information regarding possible payment plans. Acceptance of a candidate’s request for payment plan options is not guaranteed.

 

Course Completion and Graduation

Collapse All Expand All

Apart from classroom lectures and assignments, there will be assessment(s) conducted by the course leader in the form of a written exam and/or a practical demonstration wherever relevant. Only the successful completion of the assessment(s) will allow a student to obtain the course certification. Failure to attend or complete any of the assessments will automatically negate your certification.

 

Yes. Students can opt to sign on for selected modules instead of an entire course should they wish. However, please do note that the completion of selected modules will not ensure the Graduate or Specialist Diploma. Instead, such candidates will earn an electronic Statement of Attainment (SOA) for each module completed, not a full qualification of a Graduate or Specialist Diploma. Click here for more information about the e-Cert.

Each module includes a written assessment, usually in the form of questions and answer paper-based test, and in some cases, a practical demonstration test that is conducted near the completion of the module. Students must successfully complete these, meeting the minimum scores to be deemed competent, in order to graduate from the module.

 

Most classes are conducted as a combination of classroom-based lectures and laboratory demonstrations. Each course and module has been carefully developed to incorporate SIMTech’s industrial expertises and experiences. Our modules utilise an unique approach of real industrial case-studies and on-site training to equip students with the latest industrial knowhows. Each of our course leaders are WSQ ACTA certified and leading experts in their respective fields. While all course leaders and a majority of module trainers are senior researchers at SIMTech, we also bring in external professional experts to conduct classes on specific topics.
