Every day, over 3.5 million of commuter journeys are taken on the rail network. In the rail industry, we continually explore the "what if" and adopt new ideas and innovative formats to improve the way we work to build a more seamless and accessible public transport system for everyone.
To attract and develop engineering talent for the rail industry, LTA together with the Public Transport Operators and National Transport Workers’ Union have jointly developed the Rail Manpower Development Package (RMDP). It aims to help fast-track efforts in upskilling the rail workforce and attracting more engineering talents to join the sector. It complements the operators’ existing training schemes and allows more workers to undergo upskilling programmes in emerging areas such as data analytics, robotics and automation application, Internet of Applications to support both current and future needs.
As part of the RMDP, LTA will centrally manage the SGRail Industry Scholarship and Training Hardware Investments (THI).
