Chances being selected via internet application are quite low.
If u want fast reply from them, try to apply on the spot during their recruitment roadshow.
U will get faster reply to go for police selection.

Spf shall be setting up booth at jobsdb career fair.
Maybe u can try ur luck there

can enlighten what is home team merit award? if your award has a direct link to the LMS or OMS,
then your path should be as of the senior officer.

So far I only know that fellow regulars (junior officers) doing part time degree are not able to get direct conversion from JO to SO. It requires u to earn your merit and experience to get to be selected for P/Insp course(9 mths in tracom) subsequently getting your inspector rank.This process can take as long as 15 to 20 years in force depending on your potential. Regards to stress and time factor, it all dependent on your vocation

if u are status now in a pnsf, then i guess the only way for u is to ord, get a degree and try applying directly as a senior officer; if that what u really want.

hope it answers abit of your doubts. correct me if i am wrong fellow seniors haha
oh damn, the coversion process can take 15 to 20 years!?! the award is open to current polytechnic students, basically get about 42k-46k depending on when the award is confirmed after that and career development opportunities as per other awards, bond period is 4 years, but will run concurrently with NS 5 years obligations for SPF or SCDF if NS has not being done, like me. the MHA recruitment officer was rather cloudy in her reply on the promotion process to SPO, she was like telling me "it is going to be VERY VERY HARD but we do have officers who get promoted" I intend to take on part time degree courses immediately after I finish the 6 months training. do you think if i actually resign after the 5 years and apply on to another agency under the home team, i will be better considered for a senior officer position. hopefully, if my plan goes nicely, i would have my part time degree before the end of my 5 years bond, much faster path than many others who would have to do 2 years ns, 4 years degree for mindef enlistees.

of cuz what i said here was not mentioned to the interviewers when they asked some of the questions

i checked with police on this before, they said can only start studying after 2 years as well. the mha recruitment woman told me that i can start studying from year 1 onwards as long as don't conflict. i think what they meant was

- official studies can only begin after 2 years, but obviously being official, i think can get leave, grants and some other incentives
- unofficial studies can begin even from day 1.

not very sure about this too, i am pretty sure when i start working next time. the admin policy with MHA and operating policy will conflict each other...

I'm filling the ICA application form also if my SPF application fail. I will submit it during the Career fair this weekend and hopefully I can get in. Salary wise is lower than SPF but still above the average executive pay in the private sector. Anyone considering this options as well?

I don't think that is the main deciding factor. I heard that you sometimes wonder how some people can still get into the SPF? They can be overweight and a pass in their cert. What they are more concern is your passion for this career.

I am applying for the SO position but if I apply ICA, still have to go through the ground work before going deskbound. At least ICA is recruiting 60 SO while SPF is recruiting 32. Customs no openings that I can find. I am now trying to find a way in first.

In a career fair held in 2008, I asked the recruitment officer if I can still apply for the JO position if there is no openings for SO. He told me that the officer will not take me in if I have completed my tertiary studies. So I replied, can I just apply based on my "A" level certificate. He said, providing false information is a crime and they did ask for my highest qualification in the form. He suggest that if I fail and there is no opening, just wait but JO is not a option for me liao. Siao la... I don't mind stamping passports though.

May I direct a question to those who have just went for the interview and assessment, how many questions were there in the Psychometric test, duration and nature? Care to share?
