CITREP Frequently Asked Questions
CITREP funding support provides up to 70-90% rebate* for Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents on eligible training. It’s designed to assist both entry-level and mid-career professionals by helping them acquire or enhance their technical skills.
You can’t apply for CITREP directly. You need to register via an authorised training provider like Bespoke Training.
The first step is to complete a simple screening interview, as required by IMDA. Here’s what we cover in the call:
- Your preferred course, and what’s included
- Criteria for funding support
- Funding options and the relevant rebate
- Student Pack and next steps
There are a number of questions we often get asked in the screening call, so we’ve created a list of CITREP Frequently Asked Questions for easy reference.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much can I claim?
CITREP+ funding support provides up to 70-90% rebate* for Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents for eligible training. You can find full details for organisation-sponsored training and self-sponsored training in our Guide to CITREP Funding Support.
Do I pay the difference between the cost of training and certification, and CITREP funding?
CITREP+ works on a reimbursement model so you have to pay the full sum upfront, and then claim for the refund once you have completed the training and certification. Your claim must be submitted within 3 months of completing the examination. Late submissions are not accepted.
Can I still claim SkillsFuture training?
Yes, you can. SkillsFuture training is a separate initiative.
Is there a cap in the number of CITREP funding claims I can apply for?
No there isn’t. You can make as many claims as you like, as long as you complete the relevant training and certification, and submit your claim and relevant paperwork within the allocated time period.
Is this training suitable for me?
The answer depends on several factors including your level of cloud experience, the training you’ve completed to date, and of course your career goals. We can provide guidance on the various training paths, and which best suits your circumstances.
