Hi

Try out free courses at:

Google Digital Garage

Courses that pays you to learn:

Finally, can always utilize your skillfuture credits to pay for course without forking out much cash. Do check out the demands and reviews before taking the courses. How to check ? Go to all the major job site /linkedin and see the possible position that you wish to work on, check out the keywords of the requirement that seems to appear in all the similar positions, that should be the skills that you want to learn and acquire.

Most of all, continously learning is always available for each specific topics by googling youtube etc and self learn, just like self learn guitar playing.

All the best ! :) Cheers! ​​​

Hello! Its great that you are looking to pick up industry skills to upgrade, especially in light of the economy now. The great news is that the Singapore government has several schemes to help citizens upskill now.

You can check Smartcademy out. They offer courses on in-demand tech skills which are conducted in real-time by industry experts. Furthermore, Smartcademy is an approved course provider under IMDA's CITREP+ Program, where eligible Singaporeans/PRs are able to apply for claims on course fees up to 90%.

I included the link below, perhaps you can check them out. All the best!!
