Technical Advisors


With the re-positioning of the Employees Retraining Board (ERB), our training services are more diversified and better geared with the needs of our wide-ranging clientele. To ensure that our courses cater timely for market changes and industry needs, the ERB has engaged the services of veteran practitioners in different industries in the capacity as Technical Advisors since 2008. Technical Advisors offer professional input to the course development and quality assurance work of the ERB, and their advice and support to the ERB have been very useful.
