Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is CoreTrade Registration Scheme?
The CoreTrade Registration Scheme was introduced, in Dec 2008, to facilitate the construction sector in building up a core group of competent and experience construction personnel in key construction trades to anchor and lead the construction workforce.

It provides a platform to retain these workers by providing them a clear career progression path and giving them due recognition through a registration system.

2. What are the benefits of workers registered under this scheme?
Foreign work permit holders, who are CoreTrade registered, are qualified as “Higher Skilled” workers. This will allow their employer to benefit from a lower foreign worker’s levy and a longer employment period in Singapore for the workers.

CoreTrade registered personnel are also required for manpower deployment under the Building Control (Amendment) Act 2007. This act requires licensed Class 1 General Builders to deploy a minimum of such registered workers in their projects.

3. Who are eligible for CoreTrade registration?
Workers who are eligible for registration include locals, as well as suitable longer-staying and experienced foreign workers who have been working in the Singapore construction industry.

Construction personnel, local and foreign alike, will be assessed based on their skill level and relevant working experience for registration under this scheme

4. What are trades available for registration?
Workers can apply for registration in any of the 17 trade categories. A total of more than 60 trades are available for skills assessment under these categories.

5. What are the registration criteria for CoreTrade Tradesman, Trade Foreman and Supervisor?
Besides academic or technical qualification, an applicant must also fulfil the minimum local construction work experience requirement to be eligible for registration.

Generally, a foreign work pass holder with a Skills Evaluation Certificate would need 4 years of local construction experience to be eligible for registration as Tradesman, 6 years for Trade Foreman and 8 years for Supervisor.

6. How much is the application fee for CoreTrade registration?
A non-refundable application fee of $10 is charged, currently, for each online application. When approved, applicants are required to enrol for the mandatory training course and skills assessment conducted at various BCA Approved Training and Testing Centre (ATTCs) and BCA Academy.

7. How do we enrol our worker for the required training and skills assessment?
