In view of the recent developments, we would like to reassure our clients and trainees that classes at Intellisoft Training will still continue. Learning is a crucial endeavor, and in times of constant change, it is even more important that we are equipped with the right skills and knowledge for the future.
Nevertheless, the safety and well-being of our clients, trainees and staff are our top priority. Since the start of the pandemic, we have put in place precautionary measures to safeguard our community against COVID-19.
Below are some of the updated precautionary measures:
- Temporary tightening of national Safe Management Measures (SMMs)
Key changes arising from the temporary tightening of national SMMs, effective from 16 May 2021 to 13 June 2021, are highlighted below:
a. Maximum class size. To minimize risk of transmission at CET venues, the maximum class size for all CET activities is capped at 50 persons (including the trainer(s)), including conferences and seminars.
However, SkillsFuture Singapore’s (SSG) prevailing guideline for a maximum class size of 40 persons (excluding the trainer(s)) for course quality reasons remains and takes precedence. Group work should be avoided. If required, group work should be done in groups of not more than 2 persons, in line with the permitted group size for social gatherings, which will be lowered from 5 persons to 2 persons.
b. CET delivery mode. Where possible, Intellisoft Training will convert in-person trainings to synchronous Virtual Live Classes between 16 May 2021 to 13 June 2021.
2. Updated and On-going SMM Measures
a. In tandem with the national roll-out, the TraceTogether-only SafeEntry (ToS) will be implemented across all Intellisoft Training venues from 17 May 2021. Learners are encouraged to bring along their Trace Together (TT) Token or have the App downloaded, to facilitate accurate contact tracing, should the need arise. At the point of entry into the training venues, if any learners forget to bring their TT token, they are required to download the TT App on their phones before they can be allowed entry. If they are unable to do so (e.g., phone is out of battery, or non-smartphone), we will allow learners entry by taking down their NRIC details. These records will be maintained for at least a month for contact tracing purposes. Intellisoft Training reserves the right to refuse entry to those who fail to bring the TT token or refuse to use the TT App.
b. Training venues. There should be fixed seating and safe distancing of at least 1m between individuals, where practicable. If this is not possible, we ensure that there is at least 1m distance between groups of no more than 2 persons in learning venues, except for instances where learners are required to move around the venue e.g. to handle machinery. we will also ensure that there is no congregation (i.e. large crowds of learners) in the premises.
c. Staggered entry and exit. To reduce inter-mingling between groups when learners enter and disperse from training venues, we will be making appropriate adjustments to the timetable to stagger lesson start and end times as far as possible.
d. Use of masks and face shields. Staff (incl. trainers) and learners must wear masks at all times, except when eating and drinking. Face shields are not allowed as substitutes for mask wear except for individuals who have medical reasons that require the use of face shields, or for staff when interacting with learners with hearing impairment. This will apply to trainers who previously had the option of wearing face shields in lieu of masks while teaching. For staff (incl. trainers) who have to wear face shields for medical reasons or when interacting with learners with hearing impairment, they must remain in a fixed position and maintain at least 2m away from any other persons.
Our Safety Management Officers (SMOs) will be present to remind trainees of these measures. Implemented together, the measures will serve as a layer of defense for our trainees and staff.
Thank you for placing your trust in Intellisoft Training for your training & upskilling needs. We appreciate everyone for doing their part in keeping good personal hygiene and taking social responsibility for fellow trainees.
We will continue to monitor the situation, take guidance from official advisories released by the authorities, and adjust our measures accordingly.
Let us work together, support each other, stay vigilant, and do our best to protect our community.
