13Are there any training grants available?
At the moment, course fee subsidies are only available for WSQ Halal Foundation (Blended Learning) – Synchronous & Asynchronous E-Learning course. Learners must achieve at least 75% course attendance, take all the assessments and achieve “Competent” in order to be entitled for the course fee subsidies. Course fee subsidies are given up to 50% of course fees for Singapore Citizens (SC) and Permanent Residents (PRs). For Enterprises and individuals who qualify for SSG’s enhanced subsidy schemes (SkillsFuture Mid-career Enhanced Subsidy and Enhanced Training Support for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)), they will be given subsidies up to 70% of course fees.
Course Fee Subsidies and Absentee Payroll Funding are available for employers sponsoring employees who are SCs & PRs. Unfortunately, there is no funding for non-Singaporeans (non-PRs) and Work Pass holders. They will be charged the full course fee.
Do also note the final subsidy amount will be decided by SkillsFuture Singapore.
SkillsFuture Credit payment can also be used for WSQ Halal Foundation (Blended Learning) – Synchronous & Asynchronous E-Learning & Halal Foundation (for Supervisors) – Asynchronous E-learning & Classroom course. Do note that SkillsFuture Credit payment is only for self-sponsored participants.

14How do I apply for training grants for WSQ Courses?
We will be applying for the training grant on your behalf via TPGateway. Do take note that training grants are only applicable for Singaporeans/PRs and for WSQ courses only.
We will proceed to generate the invoice via the training account after a successful grant application.
15I am an employer. Can I use the SkillsFuture Credit payment for my staff?
No, employers are not allowed to use individual’s SkillsFuture Credit to pay (either in full or partial) for employer-sponsored courses. (Training Organisation will have to alert SSG if we are aware of such cases).
16When will I receive my training certificates?
We have moved towards e-certificate generation.
Training certificates will be available for download within 2 weeks after the course. Kindly retrieve and download the training certificates via the training account. The contact person (those who registered for you) will have access to the training account. You may refer to our user guide for instructions on how to download the certificates.
For WSQ courses, learners assessed to be “Competent” will also be awarded a Statement of Attainment (SOA) from SSG. Learners will receive a notification email/SMS from SSG when the SOA is ready. This is typically 2-3 weeks from the date of assessment of the course. Please ensure that you provide us with an updated email address and/or mobile number so that you are able to receive this notification. Learners can access their e-Certs by logging into the MySF Portal at www.myskillsfuture.gov.sg with their SingPass.
1718. Can I display the Certificate of Attendance/Achievement in my establishment?
No, you are not allowed to display the Certificate of Attendance / Achievement for public viewing to avoid misunderstanding as it is not equivalent to Muis Halal Certificate. The Certificate of Attendance / Achievement should be kept in your Halal File.
