What is NICF?

The National Infocomm Competency Framework, or NICF, is jointly developed by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) and Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), in conjunction with the infocomm industry, and is part of the Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) system. The NICF defines the competencies needed for various key infocomm job roles at different levels, and facilitates the skills development and career progression of infocomm professionals.

The NICF underpins skills formation and enables infocomm professionals to have greater access to competency-based training and to attain recognized certifications. Through NICF, infocomm professionals can continually upgrade themselves and companies can develop their staff, in both specific infocomm occupational skills and generic employability skills. Companies can also use the NICF to enhance their human resource and training systems.
