The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has cancelled the Accredited Training Provider (ATP) status of five training providers in Singapore.

The training providers who had their ATP status cancelled were Work Safe Academy Pte Ltd; Propel Consultants Pte Ltd; Regent Global Consultants Pte Ltd; Bright Training Centre Pte Ltd and Ark HSE Management Solutions Pte Ltd.

According to a MOM press release, these firms conducted malpractices which compromised the integrity of the Workplace Safety and Health (WHS) courses.

The MOM ATP scheme accredits training providers to conduct these WHS courses on behalf of MOM.

Acting on information received from the public and MOM’s regular audits, MOM investigated these five training providers, and found they “failed to conduct courses according to stipulated course durations, failed to ensure trainees’ language proficiency for the courses and failed to uphold the integrity of examination procedures.”

MOM added these providers will no longer be allowed to conduct MOM-accredited courses.

Furthermore, for two years from the date of cancellation, their directors will not be allowed to apply as an ATP director, principal and or trainer with MOM .

The Ministry revealed the accreditation status of 11 training providers have been cancelled by MOM for similar violations since 2010.

“MOM will continue to step up investigations and appropriate actions will be taken against errant ATPs,” the press release stated.
