the position of ICA specialist is being closed for application as of now.

Being a O level holder, is there any career prospect?

some recap questions you guys keep repeating:

[correct me if there's anything wrong]

Yes, you still need to report your yearly in-camp reservist and your non-ICT IPPT. ICA itself have no IPPT at the moment.

Salary is non-negotiable, Diploma with NS is gross $2076

rank wise doesn't serve anything any achievement, dip is sgt, below is corporal.

it's all uniform job.

after your 8 weeks, mostly the first 2 years attachment is at woodland checkpoint, that's where manpower need the most and people couldn't stand there.

the 1st week of training, you need to stay in, training is at home team academy near keat hong camp. take 975 from choa chu kang MRT. if not wrong, monthly pay for the 8 weeks training is $1400.

there will be fire arms handling and self defense training.

there are three shift each day and 1 day rest of the week.
depend on their schedule. as ICA always shortage of ppl, you may need to cover two shift and a bit more. sometimes you may need to blow your rest day...

1 shift = 8 hours

it's a zero tolerance, zero error job, you cannot effort to miss a passport without scanned.

the job throughout your 8 hours of the day will be the same in the day.

further studies wise - you only be sponsored a related degree if you qualify for their selection (scholarship). if you want to further studies non-related, i guess you have to quit the job.

studies wise - there's no need to think part time, their schedule always very pack, you will have no time.

mainly job scope is passport-handling, searching of illegal subject or object.
contraband = hand over to custom
illegal person = detain them, let police handle
rarely seen them do sentry work, mostly handed over to cisco security.

counter setup for checking subject is either us or Cisco
gantry setup for checking vehicle is by us.

[extra] as for the searching of vehicle, there's no need to tear open a huge vehicle if there is no paper warrant to detain the vehicle from higher ups. the Senior officer (i suppose) will elevate the issue, the specs will break open the vehicle.

you either will be given permanent or contract (1 year), depend on your interview. for the contract, they can decide whether to extend or not. if not, I guess you wasted a bit.

if not wrong, there is no bonus for ICA specialist but there will be a single increment of pay at the end of the year.

for the pay wise, example Dip w/- NS, no matter how much you worked for 1 month, your pay is always $2076. this explain why ppl overworked cause ICA need to use the most of you. and this explain why some ppl there wanted to work for less cause they still be getting $2076. hard truths...

think carefully before you join, but it's good career to stay on.

ICA recruitment is monthly basis, unless it's a walk-in or career fair.
the career@gov will update ICA monthly and consolidate all applicants. the things I dunno when is the start date and end date.

the usual waiting is 30 days, at least will inform you for submission of documents on the last day. between the submission and the interview is normally 1 week.

you need to take your height, weight, BMI will be auto calculated by them.

you need to convince them you can pass your non-ICT IPPT.
if you haven't or didn't. they don't like IPPT failures.

if you are called for submission of documents - you need to complete a ICA application form email by them, if you didn't received, email them.

during the submission of documents, they don't really care about your professional certification (example, MCSE, CCNA, or accounting cert that kind).

they only need your fitness, highest qualification, your commitment and someone who can speak for your character references (the last one if not wrong).


sorrie I didn't arrange the above according..

I wanted to join but haven't, the above is what I know. hope me success...

Shift is 7hours not 8???

Pay is not exactly always at $2076, I believe theres OT pay or if not OT hours exchange for leave/time-off.

depending on whether it is BOT or VOT

if its BOT, it has to be full shift.
if its VOT, it is dependable on the Duty officer

some might let u cover a few hrs.
some require u to do full shift.

so its up to u to tell the DO when u want to stop. some off course dont require want u to OT
