A successful career requires continuous learning, that’s why we established three academies to reskill and upskill our people with comprehensive training and exposure to the most advanced technology in the fields. Individuals will be trained and updated with the latest knowledge through programmes customized to fit their industries, levels, and stages of their careers.
The LTA Academy was established by the Land Transport Authority of Singapore, with the aim of becoming a one-stop global knowledge hub in urban transport and to promote best practices and experiences on land transport issues.
As the capability building arm of LTA, the academy strives to be the centre for sharing of experience and expertise on local land transport and to promote research and exchange of best practices from around the world.
To meet the long term manpower requirements of the rail sector, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has established the Singapore Rail Academy (SGRA) to build up and deepen local engineering and research capabilities.
The rail sector currently employs over 6,000 workers for rail operations and maintenance, of whom more than half are engineers and technicians. To support the expansion of the rail network to 360km by 2030, it is estimated that an additional 5,000 workers will be needed. The SGRA will therefore be instrumental in developing capabilities and ensuring that standards for rail engineering, operations, maintenance and safety will meet the demands of the expanding rail network.
The Singapore Bus Academy (SGBA) is established to offer enhanced training to all bus professionals. Besides foundation courses, SGBA will progressively introduce refresher courses and advanced modules for all bus professionals so they can undergo continual training and to deepen their skillsets. This is also a dedicated career resource centre for the public bus sector where interested applicants can receive most up-to-date information on career options and proficiency requirements.
