The Official Note of Completion Acknowledgement can be used to verify that the Trainee have completed the ML Prog and be allowed to register for the CSOC 2 Days Course with any of the approved TPs. This acknowledgment can be obtained by accessing the SCAL Academy's e-learning application with your login upon finishing the WSH Microlearning programme.

Additional Information

  • Languages Offered: English, Tamil, Bengali, Mandarin, Malay, Hindi, Burmese, Thai, Vietnamese, Khmer, and Lao.

  • Online Delivery: The micro-learning modules are delivered online, making it convenient for workers to access the course without the need for a physical presence at a training center.

  • Importance of Participation: As of 1 January 2024, the CSOC re-certification assessment will include questions from the micro-learning content. It's crucial that Construction work pass holders undertake this program to avoid potential failure in their CSOC re-certification. This would not only lead to additional training costs but also the necessity to redo the entire WSH Micro-learning Programme and the two-day CSOC.

Construction companies are hence strongly advised to enroll their workers in this essential program, ensuring they are adequately equipped and prepared for their recertification assessment.
