How Does The BIM PCP Work?
A PMET is hired before undergoing training to take on a new job role. Training and work attachments will be provided through industry clients. This will allow the PMET to acquire the necessary competencies to embark on a career in the AEC industry. It is managed by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) with funding support from Workforce Singapore (WSG). Shortlisted candidates will then be employed full-time and sponsored for the training programme by PCP employers.
BIM PCP Structure
To facilitate PMETs in their new careers as BIM professionals, they will undergo a 12-month structured PCP including classroom training at BCA Academy, along with on-the-job training delivered by the PCP employer. Candidates with relevant built environment experience or qualifications may participate in the accelerated 6-month training programme.
BIM PCP Certification
Courses delivered under the PCP programme include a foundation module in Construction Management, Certification Course in BIM Modelling, Certification Course in BIM Management, as well as a Specialist Diploma in BIM. All courses are offered by BCA Academy.
The BIM PCP can be used to upskill existing employees to be redeployed in emerging job roles in Digital Construction. By working with Ace Industrial Academy, training programmes can be tailored to your staff’s work schedules. This would minimise disruption to your employees’ working hours.
