  • To qualify for the funding, a trainee MUST successfully complete the course (including achieving at least 75% attendance and passing all assessments)
  • NTUC Members can enjoy up to 50% funding (capped at $500 per year) under the Union Training Assistance Programme (UTAP)

IBF funding is a nett fee model, meaning you generally don’t pay the full course fee upfront. Either self-sponsored or company-sponsored, you just need to pay the courses fees minus the funding support.

To successfully complete an IBF course and qualify for funding, you’ll need to meet two main requirements:

1. Attendance:
Each course has a minimum attendance requirement. This is typically enforced, so consistent participation is crucial.
Most courses are intensive, often lasting 2 consecutive days: from 9 am to 5 pm.

2. Assessment:
There will be an assessment component at the end of the course. This might include a test, project, or practical exercise.
Successfully completing the assessment is essential for receiving your IBF funding and earning any associated IBFQ certification (if applicable).

Tip: Check with the specific training provider for details on their attendance policy and the format of the final assessment.
