Published: Jan 05, 2012
Singapore - Singapore Shippers' Academy (SA), the training unit of the Singapore National Shippers' Council (SNSC) is opening its first training and certification centre for the shipping and logistics community.
Located at the StarHub Centre in downtown Orchard, SA will be targeting to train 1,000 students this year and subsequently up to 5,000 students annually by 2015.
SA will be teaming up with regional community Supply Chain Asia (SCA) to construct an industry programme focusing on practical-oriented skills and knowledge-based training from operational and strategic levels.
"With the rising complexity of global logistics today, continuous training and knowledge enhancement is key to staying competitive for companies," Paul Lim, founder and president of Supply Chain Asia said.
Jointly awarded by SA and SCA's Academy Boards, the diploma and degree programmes will be starting by the third quarter of this year and masters/PhD courses by 2015.
Tertiary level programmes will require applicants to possess O/A level or other equivalent qualifications.
The first training class "Certificate in Trade Compliance Management" will be starting on 16 January 2012.
The training centre at Starhub Centre in downtown Orchard can accommodate two classes of 20 students per class. The capacity of the training centre will be expanded to take in five classes from 2013.
