    To bring recognition to multi-skilled personnel, skilled trades, crafts & professions.


    Our Objectives

    • To help members achieve their personal aspirations, fulfil their career ambitions & develop their innate potential.
    • To support lifelong learning & encourage education in skilled professions.
    • To give professional recognition to those who provide a valuable contribution to society.


    Applicants will be assessed on their education, training, knowledge, skill & experience (K.S.E.). Due consideration will be given to those who are qualified only by practical experience.
