Singapore, 30 October 2023 – AETOS Training Academy (ATA) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Advisory Council on Community Relations in Defence (ACCORD), Employer and Business (E&B) Council, established by the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF). As the first public-private partnership for ACCORD, this collaboration serves to not only strengthen national defence but also empower Singaporeans to further accelerate their careers in the sector post-National Service.

Through this strategic partnership, both organisations will jointly accredit full-time National Servicemen (NSFs) under the ambit of the Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) security courses, and enhance the security capabilities of Operationally Ready National Servicemen (NSmen) and NS Mark (Gold) accredited entities. Beyond core security modules, AETOS will offer a wide range of courses to further uplift individuals’ skill sets, including first aid, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) pilot training and certification, and WSQ Adapt to Change with an Outward Mindset for Frontliners among others.

“At AETOS, we understand the vital role that NSmen and NSFs play in safeguarding our nation’s security. Our collaboration with ACCORD underscores our commitment to help elevate the expertise of our NSmen and NSFs by aligning their security competencies and skill sets with industry standards. Beyond simply offering specialised security training, this strategic partnership reflects our commitment to empowering fellow Singaporeans to upskill and reskill, ensuring a seamless transition into the security sector and continued employment after NS,” said Mr. Alfred Fox, CEO of AETOS. “Together, we are equipping them with in-demand, relevant skills that will not only advance their professional growth but also enhance their employability in the long run.”

“The ACCORD (E&B) Council is MINDEF/SAF’s strategic partner to engender the employers and businesses’ support and advocacy for National Service (NS) and our NSmen. To enhance our NSmen’s employability, MINDEF/SAF has collaborated with ACCORD (E&B) Council to offer opportunities for NSmen to acquire skills to stay relevant in the workplace. On behalf of MINDEF/SAF, I would like to thank AETOS for their commitment to support the professional development of our NSmen. Going forward, MINDEF/SAF will continue to leverage on ACCORD (E&B) Council to explore other collaborative opportunities to enhance our NSmen’s employability and relevance in the future workplace,“ said BG(NS) Kenneth Liow, Director National Service Affairs, Head ACCORD (E&B) Council Secretariat.
