Accreditation for Training Provider

Replacement of MOM Accredited Training Provider Scheme with Singapore Accreditation Council Accreditation Scheme for Learning Service Provider Certification

With effect from 14 October 2014, the Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) Accreditation Scheme for Learning Service Provider (LSP) Certification shall replace the MOM Accredited Training Provider (ATP) Scheme. The change will enhance the standard of accreditation, with the application of ISO 29990:2010 standard in addition to MOM’s “Technical Notes” requirements. Thus, the option for new course application transactions will no longer be available in MOM e-services from 14 Oct 14.

Existing ATPs whose ATP expiry dates fall before 01 July 2015 shall have the option to renew the existing ATP accreditation under the MOM ATP Scheme for another 2 years upon the date of expiry. The ATP may also choose to be certified under the SAC Accreditation scheme upon the expiry of the ATP accreditation or earlier, if so chooses.

Existing ATPs with expiry dates that fall on or after 01 July 2015 shall be required to apply as a Learning Service Provider under the SAC Accreditation Scheme upon the expiry of the ATP accreditation, if they wish to continue offering the WSH course/s.

Please refer to FAQs on SAC scheme for further details
