Benefits Of CoreTrade Training Courses

The Construction Registration of Tradesmen (CoreTrade) is a registration scheme administered by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA), for skilled and experienced construction personnel in the various key construction trades.

What are the benefits of the CoreTrade Training Course?

Apart from equipping your workers with new knowledge and additional technical skills, your company can benefit by having them recognized by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and upgrading them into Higher-Skilled Workers.

By upgrading your construction personnel with a BCA-approved training course like CoreTrade, employers will pay a lower levy rate and extended maximum period of employment. Instead of 14 years for a Basic-Skilled Worker, Higher-Skilled Workers actually have their period of employment extended to a maximum of 26 years!

Signing your employees up for a familiarisation course provides a lot of benefits to you and your company. You get to keep your company’s high-performing construction personnel with additional training and testing through this CoreTrade Scheme.

No need to worry about re-hiring new workers all the time when you can keep the core group of personnel essential to your business for a long time.
