Tap Up To 90% Funding!

The Critical Infocomm Technology Resource Programme Plus (CITREP+) is a programme under IMDA’s TechSkills Accelerator (TeSA) initiative to support the ICT workforce in keeping pace with technology shifts, through the continuous and proactive training of technical skills sets, in order to remain relevant and productive.

To build a strong core of local ICT professionals with Smart Nation capabilities, CITREP+ has been expanded to support entry-level professionals since April 2016 to build specialized ICT skills through broad-based training courses and certifications.

IMDA will work with training providers to develop and offer quality Infocomm professional development technology courses and professional certifications that impart knowledge and skills in relevant areas.

As an extension to the existing support for classroom-based courses and professional certifications, CITREP+ will now support selected Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that have a specific focus on developing ICT skillsets.
