CITREP+

(Critical Information Technology Resource Program Plus)

CITREP+ supports Singaporean professionals in keeping pace with technology through continuous and proactive training. It’s designed to assist both entry-level and mid-career professionals by helping them acquire or enhance their technical skills, and to build a strong base of specialised local ICT professionals with digital capabilities.

The programme is under the TechSkills Accelerator (TeSA) – an initiative of SkillsFuture, driven by Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and in partnership with strategic partners Workforce Singapore (WSG) and SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG).
