What is it?

Attach-and-Train Programme for Embedded Software Developer is a manpower development programme supported by Workforce Singapore, under the Professional Conversion Programme (PCP), which aims at re-skilling mid-career Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMETs) into Embedded Software Developers. 

Trainees will learn about the foundations of programming, fundamental algorithms and data structures commonly used in the field of computer science during classroom training. Subsequently, they will apply this knowledge to explore the architecture of embedded microcontroller systems, study their internal components, networking peripherals, as well as the key facilities offered by real-time operating systems. Trainees equipped with this knowledge should be able to efficiently work with embedded microcontrollers from a software engineer’s perspective, and have a good general understanding of the electronic engineering principles.

Upon completion of the classroom training, trainees would undergo on-the-job training at Partnering Companies that they are attached to.
