Funding under Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy (“MCES”)

1. MCES is an enhanced subsidy to encourage mid-career individuals to upskill and reskill, thereby helping them remain competitive and resilient in the job market. With this, all Singaporeans aged 40 and above will receive higher subsidies of up to 90% of course fee subsidy for SSG-funded certifiable courses.

2. Individuals/employers are not required to submit an application for the MCES. Those pursuing SSG-funded programs will be charged the appropriate subsidized fees if they are eligible for MCES. Individuals/employers will only need to pay the nett fee (full course fee after SSG’s grant).

Never have I attended such an engaging course and it makes my journey of Agile and Scrum journey much more fun and fulfilling. Trainer Stuart Mitchell has definitely take up the standard of teaching and coaching up many notches. Very insightful views from vast working experiences that Stu has. Highly recommended!

Edwin Anuruddha Chow

Event Manager


Dennis and team are just simply great to work with. They are prompt with their replies and clear with their instructions to ensure that learners get the best experience and learning journey with them. That's why I had chosen to go back to them for my CSPO course after taking my CSM course with them. I am looking forward to the post course gatherings and informal trainings which I heard they they organize after Covid.

Thanks for the CSM course, I found it a rewarding experience. The course was well set out, easy to understand, and had an amazing trainer and coach (Stuart). It wasn’t just about certification, but also gave insights to a lot of engagement techniques and real world experiences. I would highly recommend this course.

The CSPO course that I took recently from Agile Asia was excellent. The instructor Mr.Sam had made us understand the responsibility of a PO very easily, with good hands-on practices and Q&A sessions after each topic. I would recommend this course for anyone, who would like to acquire Agile skills in a short period.

One of the best providers in the agile training space. The facilitators Stu and Sam have been there are done Scrum in large organizations and bring a wealth of knowledge. They convey concepts so well during classes that even people without a prior background can assimilate the knowledge easily.
