Advisory and Updates on COVID-19

 

The COVID-19 situation in Singapore has stabilised. The Multi-Ministry Taskforce has announced further easing of community Safe Management Measures (SMMs) and adjusting of the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) level from orange to yellow.

Currently, IAL adopts online learning for the delivery of our programmes. From 1 June 2022, IAL will resume blended learning for all programmes, except existing fully online WSQ Advanced Certificate in Learning & Performance (ACLP) cohorts, which will continue to be conducted online.

IAL will continue to monitor the situation and provide timely updates via our email and web channels in the event of any changes.

Programme Administrative Information

 

The Terms & Conditions listed below are applicable for all IAL programmes. 

IAL reserves the right to make changes or modifications to these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice, as it deems appropriate.

Pre-Course Administration

  • The UEN provided must be that of the company contributing CPF for the sponsored learners.

  • Company-sponsored learners must meet the 75% attendance requirement per module for their company claim Absentee Payroll. Government entities and private entities held under a government agency whose manpower expenditure is partially government-funded are not eligible for AP funding.

  • Learners enrolled in WSQ courses are obliged to meet the attendance requirements and achieve the competencies. Otherwise, IAL reserves the right to recover the course grants/subsidies disbursed.

  • If a sponsored learner quits their job midway through the course, there will be no course fee refund to the company for the unconsumed modules. The learner may continue to complete the course.

  • Learners whose course fees are paid by their company are not allowed to switch to ‘self-sponsored’ status later.

 

  • Companies cannot use individuals’ SkillsFuture Credit (SFC) to pay for the course fee (in part or in full). 
  • Registration is based on a first-come-first-serve basis. IAL cannot waitlist or reserve seats for interested applicants, and there is no billing or e-invoicing to the company.
  • To secure enrolment in the preferred course schedule, the company’s representative should make payment via eNets/credit card (VISA or MasterCard) at the end of the registration process.
  • The system will automatically cancel the enrolment if full payment is not received by 11:59 pm (Singapore Time) on the same day of registration. The company’s representative will then need to re-register for the course, subject to availability at the time of re-registration.
  • Please refer to IAL Withdrawal/Refund Terms and Conditions for requests by company to replace a registered learner with another employee.


Dedicated ‘Corporate-run’ organised by company:

  • The company’s representative may contact IAL to organise a specific course run for their employees if they can form a class of a minimum of 12 learners.
  • For dedicated corporate runs, billing and payment terms will be based on the signed contract with IAL.
  • The UEN provided must be that of the company contributing CPF for the sponsored learners.

  • The indicated fee payable (inclusive of GST) will cover the training sessions and the course assessment, and it will also take into account all eligible grants/subsidies.

  • Please note the submission period for your SFC claim via MySkillsFuture needs to be within 60 days before the course start date (date inclusive). If your course start date is more than 60 days from the date of SFC application, the SSG-SFC portal would reject your application.

  • A non-refundable administrative fee of S$53.50 (with GST) applies for all rescheduling request and the next available slot will be offered.

At IAL, we are committed to creating a positive learning environment that encourages active learning.

  • You may send in your feedback via the Module Evaluation, which occurs at the end of each module.
