Over 500 graduates were awarded their diplomas and advanced certificates for successfully completing their National Infocomm Competency Framework (NICF) courses and Master of Business (ERP Systems) from Victoria University, Australia.
Mr. Ng Cher Pong, Chief Executive, SSG graced the event. Other distinguished guests included senior executives from the Singapore Computer Society, Lifelong Learning Institute, and Victoria University, Australia.

This is part of our larger efforts to equip existing Infocomm Technology (ICT) professionals as well as new entrants with industry relevant skills, to aid them in their career progression and for them to remain competitive in the ever evolving ICT industry."
Lithan Academy's NICF courses provide knowledge and practical skills that allow graduates to successfully assume high-demand job roles required by the infocomm industry. Examples of such job roles include those in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Business Intelligence (BI), Big Data Analytics, Systems Administration, Technopreneurship, and Infocomm Sales and Marketing.
"Our Cooperative Learning Just-in-Time education model ensures our graduates can be productive immediately from day one at their new jobs." said Leslie Loh, Chairman of Lithan Academy. "The combination of competency-based curricula, work-integrated experiential learning, blended learning and just–in-time delivery ensures our graduates have the exact skills and experience employers need."
Lithan Academy's NICF courses are also internationally recognized and enable individuals to continue to deepen their skills upon graduation. "Several of our NICF-accredited courses can be articulated to top foreign university degree programmes. For example, our NICF courses in ERP and BI have been articulated into Victoria University's Master of Business (ERP Systems)." said Krishna Ramoo, Chief Operating Officer of Lithan Academy.
Krishna further explained that "Our courses combine practical hands-on training, apprenticeships, and industry-relevant projects and case studies. So not only do our graduates receive NICF qualifications and a degree (for those who opted for advanced studies), they also receive industry certifications and valuable work experience."
