The Construction Registration of Tradesmen (CoreTrade) Scheme was introduced to help the built environment sector build up a core group of competent and experienced workers in key construction trades and supervisory roles. These workers will, in turn, anchor and lead the construction workforce in raising quality and productivity levels.
The aim of the Multi-Skilling Scheme is to build up a pool of experienced workers that are competent to carry out more than one type of work task on-site. This gives employers the flexibility to deploy multi-skilled workers on-site, thus improving productivity.
The Direct R1 Pathway allows workers with higher skills, who may not have acquired the necessary years of local construction experience, to upgrade to become “Higher Skilled” R1 construction workers.
CET aims to continuously upgrade the construction workforce to support improvements in productivity, quality and safety.
This scheme aims to raise the skills, productivity and safety in the construction sector.
