Reskill your competencies to take on new jobs
Accurate as of 15 Nov 2021
What is it?

The Career Conversion Programme (CCP) for BIM Professionals is targeted at mid-career individuals who are keen to embark on a career in the Built Environment (BE) sector. As the BE sector moves rapidly into BIM, there are many opportunities for individuals to take on BIM roles to create and manage BIM models, perform checks and audits and conduct building simulation to detect and resolve potential building issues.  This 7-month conversion programme comprises facilitated classroom training and structured on-the-job training; and is managed by the Singapore Contractors Association Ltd (SCAL) with funding support from Workforce Singapore (WSG).

The programme also supports in-company redeployment* to help companies undergoing business transformation, to reskill and redeploy affected employees.
