We offer a few types of courses. Please take the time to read through the description on our website.
For Halal Foundation Programme, there are three types. Please read through the description on our website to assess which type is suitable for you or your staff. The three types are:
1. Supervisory (for personnel with a supervisory role and a diploma or above)
2. WSQ Halal Foundation (Operational Level) in English language
3. WSQ Halal Foundation (Operational Level) in Malay language
All the contents are based on Muis Halal Certification Conditions. WSQ Halal Foundation (Operational Level) is also aligned with one of the skills standards under the WSQ Food Services Framework.
The assessment structure for Supervisory is written assessment and WSQ Halal Foundation (Operational Level) includes practical and written assessment. The dynamic of the class may also differ.
Unfortunately, only WSQ Halal Foundation (Operational Level) is eligible for SDF funding. Do subscribe to our newsletter for updates on Supervisory.
All learners will need to meet the course requirements of being able to speak, read and write in the language medium of the course.
