congratz that was fast. . . . . i heard that ica now like no ippt but changing to ippt soon... i wonder it is true haha... i though all home team got ippt de.....
lol where u heard this from?

Unlikely. Yes it is one of home team agencies but bear in mind that it is not consider a uniform group though they do don uniforms while on duty

Oh well for the guys they do have to report for reservist so imagine they have to go thru 2 ippt

Anyone who is a ICA spec here? I wish to know the prospects in this field and benefits... Thx a bunch~!
I have no intention to dampen the atmosphere here.

Seriously bro, no basic degree... no need to talk about prospect. Spare yourself from the agony. You will start losing interest in the long run, when you see new young graduates coming in (no experience) and become your supervisor.

Majority those who are surviving are those who got no choice (got family to feed), enjoy the working environment (can be laid back and few those posted to better department) and waitingx3 for better job opportunity outside.

If you wish to remain and serve the organization, these are few part time courses which are popular among the home team officers.

For O levels
Diploma in Para-Legal Studies
Diploma in Police Studies & Security Management
Diploma in Security & Fire Safety Management

Click here for more details

For Dip Holders
BSc Management and Security Studies

Bear in mind you would probably be working shifts.... so self discipline and having a supporting teammates/supervisor/family members are important

I personal feel that for


Diploma in Para-Legal Studies <= If you are in SPF, you alreay know basic law & this will not help you to increase your chance to be promote compact to other Poly Dip. But it can help to to become a Legal Officer in law firm.


Diploma in Police Studies & Security Management <= Totaly no use. Waste time & $.


Diploma in Security & Fire Safety Management <= At less this can help you become a Fire Safety Managers but I belive NP DipTech (Building) cam help you more in looking for jobs.


So I advice that those in uniform group should get Poly Dip like Business or Engineering so that you can cross over to PTE sector or other non-uniform Public sector.
