SkillsFuture, a Government statutory board under the Ministry of Education (MOE), is advertising a course on the “fundamentals of cockroach management” which will teach participants how to “identify and inspect cockroaches.”

The part-time course, which started on 27 June  and will end on 30 Aug, is being hosted on the MySkillsFuture platform. The training is provided by Gnowbe Pte Ltd – a company that calls itself a “pioneering mobile micro-learning and engagement solution to help the modern workforce learn faster and better. “

Participants who enroll in the course undergo 11 sessions, in which they will learn about the habits and behaviour of cockroaches, how to identify cockroaches, how to prevent cockroach infestations, how to inspect, find and assess cockroaches as well as how to treat and monitor cockroaches.

According to its website, MySkillsFuture is a “one-stop portal that enables Singaporeans of all ages to make informed learning and career choices, so that they can pursue their skills and career development throughout their lives.” The portal is administered by the SkillsFuture stat board, which primarily functions as a training grants scheme run by the Government.

SkillsFuture calls itself a “national movement to provide Singaporeans with the opportunities to develop their fullest potential throughout life, regardless of their starting points” on its website. The movement is aimed to “drive Singapore’s next phase of development towards an advanced economy and inclusive society.”

It is unclear how a course on “cockroach management” will drive Singapore towards and advanced economy and inclusive society. Check out the course details in full HERE.Follow us on Social Media
