The Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) is Singapore’s national system that encompasses training, development, assessment, and certification of workforce skills and competencies. Funded and quality-assured by SkillsFuture Singapore, which awards the WSQ certifications, WSQ programmes are eligible for SkillsFuture Funding and usage of SkillsFuture Credits. 

 

WSQ upholds a strong quality assurance framework, ensuring high standards in skills development, training provider approval, and WSQ qualification validation. This comprehensive framework reflects Singapore’s steadfast commitment to workforce development and establishes a solid training infrastructure.

Following a rigorous process, OOm has been accredited by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) as an Approved Training Organisation (ATO). This accreditation enables OOm to provide training for WSQ-certified courses, ensuring that the WSQ certificate awarded by OOm carries substantial recognition by employers.

All of our courses are conducted onsite. We believe in the importance of providing a conducive learning environment where students can directly interact with instructors and fellow classmates. By conducting courses onsite, we ensure a hands-on and immersive learning experience that fosters active participation and engagement.

Our courses are designed for beginners and do not have any prerequisites in terms of prior qualifications. However, basic computer competency is required, covering areas such as keyboard and mouse usage, file and folder navigation, and basic application handling (e.g. launching and closing programs).

Candidates who meet the attendance requirement of at least 75% and successfully pass the assessments will be granted a Certificate of Completion by OOm Academy along with a SkillsFuture WSQ Statement of Attainment.
