National Infocomm Competency Framework (NICF)

Singapore has developed the NICF as a joint effort between the WDA and the IDA to serve the businesses and individuals in the ICT industry, or the Infocomm industry.

The NICF is a manpower planning tool that details the competency requirements of key infocomm job roles and assists in the skill development and career progression of infocomm professionals. Besides serving as a national framework for training providers to develop and align their training programmes to, the NICF is used as a tool for businesses to develop its human resource capabilities. These may include the development of job profiles, recruitment and interview checklists, performance assessment and appraisals framework, training roadmaps and curriculum.
