Why is there a requirement for SgIS scholars who take up the HR CET Grant to show commitment to be certified under the National HR Professional Certification Programme?

The National HR Professional Certification aims to enhance the competencies of HR professionals, as well as create developmental and progression pathways for them. This will professionalise and strengthen the HR profession in Singapore, allowing HR professionals to be important enablers of businesses and organisations. The certification will be launched in the second half of 2017.

Undergoing the National HR Professional Certification process would allow SgIS scholars who have received the HR CET Grant to get a better understanding of the necessary foundational and functional competencies as well as mind-sets and behaviours to perform a HR role effectively. SgIS scholars should tap on the HR CET Grant to take up courses that would prepare them for the certification.
