Post-Course Information

How are the courses evaluated?

SSI, SSG or its appointed agents will be obtaining feedback from you and your supervisors (for organisation sponsored learners) at various stages of the course. As such, you will be required to give consent to allow SSI, SSG or its appointed agent to call/email/SMS you for the purpose of obtaining information related to the courses. This post-course feedback will enable us to gauge the quality of training, effectiveness of the curriculum and assess the transfer of knowledge and skills into practice at workplace.  


What type of certification will I receive?

SSI will be awarding a Certificate of Achievement or Certificate of Attendance in electronic form (e-Certs) to learners who have met the attendance and assessment requirements (if applicable) for the courses undertaken by them. The e-Certs will be available for download in your NCSS e-Services account (login via SingPass) and this will allow you to retrieve your e-Certs at your convenience. You will therefore o no longer need to be concerned about the safekeeping of the hardcopy certificates from SSI. You will receive an email notification once the e-cert is ready for download.

If you would like to have a printed copy of your e-Cert, please contact SSI at socialserviceinstitute@ncss.gov.sg within six (6) months from the date of email notification sent on the download of e-certs.  The first print will be provided free of charge. Any request received after six (6) months or subsequent requests for reprints of your e-Cert will be charged at prevailing rates by SSI.
