To alleviate manpower shortage in construction industry, with the support of Development Bureau, the Construction Industry Council (CIC) launches the "Advanced Construction Manpower Training Scheme - Pilot Scheme (Structured On-the-job)" to train up semi-skilled workers to become skilled workers.
This scheme is open for application by employers. Prior to joining the scheme, employers are required to hire the semi-skilled workers they intend to upskill. The employers, main contractors, sub-contractors, trade associations and the members(employers) of trade unions who are interested in the Scheme need to submit an application form and other relevant documents. After the approval of the application, the employer will receive a written notice from the CIC. The training periods are set from 1 to 2 years depending on individual trades. For more details, please refer to the framework.
