CITREP+ supports local ICT professionals in keeping pace with technology shifts through continuous and proactive training. Through continuous up-skilling, fresh professionals and mid-career professionals may acquire or enhance technical skills sets which will enable them to remain relevant and productive in their careers. To build a strong core of specialised Singaporean ICT professionals with Smart Nation capabilities, CITREP+ is now expanded to support entry-level professionals since 2010 to build specialised ICT skills through broad-based training courses and certifications. IMDA will work with training providers to curate and offer quality infocomm professional development technology courses and professional certifications that impart knowledge and skills in relevant areas.
