HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT

One of the most highly demanded ICV vouchers was in the area of HR. Hence SPRING Singapore saw an urgent need to certify HR consultants to cater to the demand from the SMEs.

The PMC-HR Framework will complement the PMC (Generic) Framework to facilitate a more robust certification for the specialisation of human resource management. The framework will cover the 6 areas of human resource management under the ICV (HR) programme. These 6 areas are sufficient to cover the broad scope of human resource management required by most of our SMEs. Click here to find out more...

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

To promote the importance of tapping on financial management advisory for their business growth, the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) is working with SPRING to reach out to SMEs that are interested to build up their financial management capabilities. At the same time, ISCA is also working with both SPRING and the Singapore Business Advisors and Consultants Council (SBACC) to better ensure that the financial management consultants engaged by the SMEs are qualified and competent in providing such advice.

A PMC-FM is a certified PMC who has all the capabilities of a PMC, plus the additional Financial Management expertise to help SMEs establish and implement strategically effective FM processes, programmes and practices relevant to his/her field of specialisation.

The Practising Management Consultant - Financial Management (PMC-FM) Framework is developed to certify and accredit financial management consultants who are keen to participate in the Financial Management Capability Program of SPRING Singapore.

The PMC-FM Framework will complement the PMC (Generic) Framework to facilitate a more robust certification for the specialisation of financial management. The framework will cover the 6 areas of financial management under the ICV (FM) programme. These 6 areas are sufficient to cover the broad scope of financial management required by most of our SMEs.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

PMC-IPM certification aims to advance the level of professionalism through the IPOS IP Competency Framework (IPCF) and provide professional and industry recognition via bodies such as SBACC. PMC-IPM certified professionals will be recognised by SPRING and be eligible to offer business and IP related consultancy services for SCOPE IP projects under the ‘IPM for SME programme’ and for grants such as the Innovation and Capability Voucher (ICV).

For legal / patent agency professionals, being PMC-IPM certified will not only allow you to be recognised by SPRING, but also provides the opportunity to offer business and IP related consultancy services as part of a full suite of services, which will, no doubt, be attractive to the SMEs. In addition, due to your legal / patents background and experience, it is likely that you will be *exempted from most, if not all, modules required to be PMC-IPM certified. As such, we hope that you will continue your support by being part of the PMC-IPM family. Click here to find our more...

At the same time, SPC is also working with both SPRING and the Singapore Business Advisors and Consultants Council (SBACC) to better ensure that the productivity consultants engaged by the SMEs are qualified and competent in providing such advice.

A PMC-PD is a certified PMC who has all the capabilities of a PMC, plus the additional Productivity expertise to help SMEs establish and implement strategically effective PD processes, programmes and practices relevant to his/her field of specialisation.

The PMC-PD Framework will complement the PMC (Generic) Framework to facilitate a more robust certification for the specialisation of productivity. The framework will cover the 4 areas of productivity. These 4 areas are sufficient to cover the broad scope of productivity required by most of our SMEs.

HALAL

The global Muslim population is growing at an annual rate of 1.8% and the market is valued at about US$560 billion a year. *This presents an excellent business opportunity for food companies looking to grow new markets to sustain their growth.  This is also a niche area where Singapore food manufacturers can develop to further differentiate themselves. Companies can get external assistance to obtain Majlis Ugama Islam Singapore (MUIS) Halal certification by engaging a certified management consultant who has the expertise and experience in this field.     

This domain certification is especially important for Practising Management Consultants that need to provide consultancy to help businesses to attain the Halal Certification. With proper certification, the companies are assured that the management consultant has the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to help them in their projects.  

Either during or after the PMC training, SBACC will arrange for the PMCs to undergo the Halal training at MUIS.
