COMMUTABLE
CERTIFICATIONS
OTCi offers two pathways for our leaders to acquire the skills and knowledge to carry out their
union roles and responsibilities efficiently. With the completion of the LM Certification by OTCi,
leaders can pursue either the skills-based or academic-based track to continue upgrading
themselves and staying relevant. Under the skills-based track, leaders will be able to achieve
national and international certifications. The second track gives leaders an option to pursue
academic based certifications; diploma and degree programmes.

The key features of OTCi’s course offerings are greater flexibility, stackability of content and
commutability.

Flexible Choices — for Efficient Learning
Union leaders now have the freedom to choose the modules that they would like to attend,
at their convenience. The flexibility provided allows for just-in-time learning for our leaders
and encouraging them to take greater ownership of their learning. This supports continuous
updating and upgrading of skills and knowledge that is essential for effective union leadership.

Stackable Content — for Effective Learning
By making our certificate series stackable, it creates a series of ascending credentials that
allow our union leaders to progress from one level of certification to the next with no duplication
in learning. Moving forward, our leaders can also accumulate credits from OTCi courses and
apply the credits towards earning higher qualifications with other institutions / professional
bodies.

Commutable Certifications — for Recognised Learning
OTCi certifications now have the added advantage of being commutable. The IR modules our
leaders take can now add up in various combinations to contribute towards a skills-based
certificate, recognised by the Institute for Human Resources Professionals (IHRP) and/or
Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Leaders also have the option to
pursue an academic-based certification, through our joint Diploma in Employment Development
(DED) with the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS). The DED is now a credit unit-
earning programme and the credit units earned can be utilised for credit waiver at degree
programmes offered by the SUSS.

                                                                                                                5

    There are 3 levels to the OTCi’s Certificated IR Series — Levels 1, 2 and 3. Each level of certification can
    be attained in the following manner:
     Level 1   3 core modules with IHRP certification
     Level 2   Level 1 + 6 elective modules
     Level 3   Level 2 + 6 elective modules

    The 3 core modules in Level 1 cover topics that will provide a solid foundation for union leaders to progress
    to Levels 2 and 3.

    To enhance recognition of certification, OTCi has partnered with the Institute for Human Resource
    Professionals (IHRP), a tripartite setup, to accord recognition to leaders who met the requirements in
    applying basic Labour Laws.
    Upon completion of the 3 core modules, leaders can now progress to the next level through the completion
    of elective modules.

    The elective modules cover a comprehensive range of topics, pertinent to Protection, Privileges, Progression
    and Placement (see Pages 13-29 for the details).

IHRP Certification
The Institute of Human Resource Professionals (IHRP) is a HR professional body, jointly set up by Ministry of
Manpower (MOM), National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and Singapore National Employers’ Federation
(SNEF), in a bid to raise HR standards in Singapore. It is the only professional body in Singapore, authorised to
implement the national Human Resources (HR) credentials, which is known as the IHRP Certification.

As part of our efforts to provide recognised certifications for our union leaders, we have incorporated a
basic IHRP certification, into OTCi’s Certificated IR Series (Level 1) Certification. In order to attain the IHRP
certification, leaders will have to sit for an assessment (conducted by IHRP) at the end of Core Module 2 and
fulfil the requirements of the assessment, to achieve certification.

With this certificate, they will have proven their proficiency in understanding and applying basic labour laws.
Upon completing the remaining Core Module 3, the leader will have attained OTC Institute Certificated IR
Series (Level 1) with IHRP certification in Employment Law and Regulations (Basic).

                                                                                                               9

     The elective modules cover a comprehensive range of topics pertinent to Protection, Privileges,
     Progression and Placement. Modules under Protection and Privileges will cover topics related to
     workplace representation in workplace or employment-related issues and understanding union membership
     benefits. Modules under Progression and Placement will examine the topics related to understanding
     career progression and advancement, in the context of the CTCs.

     In order to attain Level 2 and Level 3 of the OTCi Certificated IR Series, leaders will need to complete
     6 elective modules for each level.

1. COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AND INDUSTRIAL ACTION
       Collective bargaining is the key mechanism our unions use in determining the working conditions and
       terms of employment for their members. The process also sets in place the rules and procedures in
       regulating the interactions between unions, employers and workers. This module addresses the
       knowledge and skills required for a successful collective bargaining process. It will also cover the

       Fees for union leaders: $45.00 per participant

     2. COMPANY RESTRUCTURING, TRANSFERS & REDUNDANCY
      Why do employers restructure their businesses? Some of the reasons may be to:
      • Survive or remain viable
      • Maintain competitiveness
      • Keep up with new technologies and enhance productivity
      • Streamline or expand their operations as a result of changing market or business trends
      • Align or meet with Government’s objectives

      With restructuring comes changes – changes in (1) operation, (2) HR policies and (3) manpower needs.
      This module will address the knowledge required during such times of restructuring and transfers, in
      order for our leaders to be able to protect the interest of workers.

3. DEVELOPING A WORKPLACE RISK MANAGEMENT PLAN (bizSAFE L2) [2 days]
  Jointly offered by NTUC WSH Secretariat and OTCi, with support from the Singapore Workplace Safety &
  Health Council, this programme serves as an important part of our plans to strengthen WSH capabilities
  and capacity in the Labour Movement, and to cascade national WSH efforts to every unionised company.

  The goal is to have at least one leader in every union and branch trained to be a WSH champion through
  this module, so as to engage the management on coming up with holistic approaches to workplace
  safety and health, robust risk management initiatives and raising awareness amongst members.

  Leaders will receive a bizSAFE Level 2 certification, upon completion of the module and passing the
  prescribed assessment.

  This module will cover the following:
  • Identifications of WSH hazards associated with any work activity or trade through hazard
     identification methodology for the workplace
  • Risk control measures methodology for the workplace to manage the identified risks to a level by
     following the principles of hierarchy of control
  • Development of a workplace risk management plan to implement hazard identification, risk
     assessment, and risk control measures
  • Communication and buy-in from all stakeholders, on the risk management plan

  Scheduled Dates:
     23-24 February

4. GRIEVANCE HANDLING, DISCIPLINE & DISPUTE MANAGEMENT
       Grievances are complaints, in the workplace, formally brought up by individual employees, through
       the official grievance procedure. Discipline refers to the formal actions taken by Management against
       an individual who fails to conform to the rules established by the Management within the organisation.
       Disputes refers to the issues relating to industrial matters (employment, terms of employment, conditions
       of labour etc). For the handling of these matters, a certain level of sensitivity and skillfulness is required,
       lest the issues escalate. Therefore, this module addresses the knowledge and skills required to handle
       grievances, discipline matters and manage disputes.

       This module will cover the following:
       • Knowledge and understanding of the key principles of grievance handling and dispute resolution
       • The grievance handling procedures and dispute management process
       • The key concepts of discipline handling and to know what constitutes minor misconducts and
          major misconducts
       • The acceptable punishments and dismissal process in Singapore

       Scheduled Dates: 12 April // 12 July // 13 September
       Full Fees: $406.60 (incl. GST)
       Fees for union leaders: $45.00 per participant

     5. HANDLING EMPLOYMENT DISPUTES: IR OR LEGAL APPROACH? (0.5 day)
       The way an employment dispute is handled can have long-term repercussions on the relationship
       between workers and employers and the workforce’s morale. It will also set precedence on how similiar
       cases may be handled in the future. While legislations and company regulations may have stipulated how
       such cases can or should be handled, it is always good to give additional considerations to other factors.
       This module will provide an overview of the legislation coverage on handling employment disputes and
       give insights through case studies, on whether to take a legalistic or industrial relations-based approach
       in handling the dispute.

     17. WORKPLACE INVESTIGATION & BOARD OF INQUIRY
       When allegations such as theft, violent behaviour, harassment and occupational health and safety
       complaints arise, the right precedent needs to be set, in the gathering of relevant information. The
       process should comply with legal responsibilities and adhere to best practices. The parties involved in

1. WORKPLACE PRODUCTIVITY WORKSHOP
       Companies often complained that they were unable to benefit fully from productivity improvements
       despite much efforts. This could be due to reasons such as weak employee support, uncoordinated
       efforts or adopting a piecemeal approach to improvement. Companies can achieve better results if
       they adopt an integrated approach to productivity improvement. This module aims to help learners
       understand and apply productivity improvement initiatives within their organisations that leads to better
       outcomes for companies and workers.

      At the 2019 National Delegates’ Conference, NTUC set a target of 1.5 million members by 2025-2030.
      This will enable the Labour Movement to be a representative voice of workers and a credible partner
      of the Government. To achieve the target, union delegates committed to three areas where the Labour
      Movement needs to innovate – (1) the union business model, (2) membership model and (3) training
      model. This module will focus on how to innovate the union business model, exploring digital possibilities,

4. John Kotter’s CREATE A STRONG BUY-IN
  Getting support for ideas can be difficult in an organisation when natural obstacles exist in the structure
  or culture. A leader who wants to advance an initiative for the betterment of the union and its members
  knows that he must first lower people’s intentional or unintentional resistance to new concepts. Backing
  from others is essential. The method for gaining buy-in taught in this module is counterintuitive. You
  learn the advantages of walking into the fray, showing respect for all, and applying well prepared tactics
  to build the support — even advocacy — necessary to launch and deliver on your innovation.

  This module will cover the following:
  • Leadership competencies in influence, communication, collaboration, strategic thinking and
     decision making
  • Evaluation on how much buy-in has already been achieved, how much more is needed and from
     whom for their initiatives
  • Creation of a step-by-step plan for advancing initiatives through building the necessary support
  • Application of tactics to increase buy-in and active support for their initiatives
  • The experience needed to apply this blueprint to advancing future ideas or initiatives
  • Tips, tools, and a plan to build success for their initiatives

  Scheduled Dates: 26 January // 5 October
  Full Fees: $802.50 (incl. GST)
  Fees for union leaders: $89.00 per participant

5. John Kotter’s LEADING THROUGH CHANGE
       Today, we expect leaders at all levels to deliver results under conditions of increasing change and
       uncertainty. However, many feel unprepared and ill-equipped to lead change. In this program, our leaders
       will first learn the components of Dr. Kotter’s 8 Steps for Successful Change and 4 Critical Leadership
       Principles that must be in place to ensure successful change. Secondly, they will explore and practice
       how to get and keep people on board and supporting change: learn the definition of true urgency and
       how to build and maintain it in their own context.

       This module will cover the following:
       • Core principles of effective change to own situation and identify ways to enhance its success
       • Recognition of the behaviours that occur when people are on board, bought in and actively
          supporting a change
       • Effective engagement of others in change by addressing their diverse needs
       • Application of tactics to increase urgency and active support for a change
       • The 8 Steps for successful change and related core leadership principles
       • Tips, tools, and a plan to build success for change

       Scheduled Dates: 10 March // 11 November
       Full Fees: $802.50 (incl. GST)
       Fees for union leaders: $89.00 per participant

     6. NEGOTIATION & CONFLICT MANAGEMENT
       Negotiation is a dialogue between two or more parties, intended to reach a mutually beneficial outcome
       over issues, where differences exist. Similarly, conflict management is the process of limiting the negative
       aspects of the difference while increasing the positive aspects. This module aims to equip union leaders
       with the knowledge and skill of negotiation and conflict management, so as to facilitate and arrive at
       win-win situations.

       This module will cover the following:
       • The principles and processes of negotiation
       • The different styles of negotiations and various negotiation strategies

7. OPERATIONS-TECHNOLOGY ROADMAPPING (OTR)
 Businesses today are transforming with technology adoption. However, technology is not always
 aligned to long term business strategies and manpower capabilities, leading to outcomes that are below
 expectations. Come and understand how to plan and develop a Operations-Technology Roadmap that
 will maximise the manpower in your company to ensure the optimal investment returns on adoption of
 new technologies.

 This module will cover the following:
 • The impact of business transformation strategies on organisation manpower
 • Developing a technology transformation strategy with the customer, operations and business in
    mind

8. PERFORMANCE AND REWARD MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR FAIR GAINSHARING
 Businesses can only successfully go through technology transformation and reap productivity gains
 if workers’ skills are also upgraded correspondingly. As such, workers too deserve to get a fair share
 for their contributions. However, it can be challenging to define productivity markers and accord the
 proportion of gains for performance and rewards. This module aims to help learners understand how to
 design a performance and reward management system to ensure fair gains sharing between companies
 and workers.

 This module will cover the following:
 • A total reward management system
 • Challenges in implementing a fair reward management system
 • Setting appropriate and measurable outcomes to justify rewards
 • Designing, implementing and evaluating a reward management system

 Scheduled Dates: 25 March // 25 August
 Full Fees: $406.60 (incl. GST)
 Fees for union leaders: $45.00 per participant

                                                                                                    27
9. SKILLS GAP AND TRAINING NEEDS ANALYSIS
       As technology transforms work, workers need to be re-skilled to be able to take up new job roles within
       the organisation. A properly executed training needs analysis and a resultant training plan is, therefore,
       needed to develop a competent workforce in the organisation. This module will help participants
       understand the different stages of a training needs analysis (TNA) as well as a skills gap analysis. They
       will learn what is involved in a TNA and be empowered to conduct a skills gap analysis in order to help
       companies enhance their manpower capabilities.

       This module will cover the following:
       • The various components of TNA
       • Identification of the skills and competencies required in job roles
       • How to use the Skills Framework as a basis for skills gap analysis

       Fees for union leaders: $45.00 per participant

     10. SUPPORTING INDIVIDUAL LEARNING THROUGH COACHING AND MENTORING
        Research informs us that formal learning events are only part of an effective learning and development
        strategy. Of equal importance are more informal learning opportunities, in the workplace, often supported
        through a coaching or mentoring relationship. This module enables leaders to develop the knowledge
        and skills required to be able to provide basic coaching and mentoring support themselves, as well as
        being able to support line managers in coaching and mentoring team members.

      This module will cover the following:
      • The nature, purpose and practice of coaching and mentoring
      • Application of coaching and mentoring models and techniques to support individual learning

11. UNDERSTANDING JOB ANALYSIS, EVALUATION & GRADING FOR WORKERS’
    PROGRESSION
  As jobs are being disrupted, new jobs are also being created. One area where unions can contribute
  is to be a part of this process of job redesign, to ensure better progression pathways for workers. This
  module aims to provide union leaders with the knowledge to analyse and develop job profiles, and how
  to integrate it with a grading system for performance management.

CD-M1. SUPPORTING INDIVIDUAL LEARNING THROUGH COACHING & MENTORING
       [28 hours / 6 credits]

     Research informs us that formal learning events are only part of an effective L&D strategy. Of
     equal importance are more informal learning opportunities, in the workplace, often supported
     through a coaching or mentoring relationship. This module enables L&D professionals to develop
     the knowledge and skills required to be able to provide basic coaching and mentoring support
     themselves, as well as being able to support line-managers in coaching and mentoring team
     members. The module begins with an introduction to the nature, purpose and practice of both
     coaching and mentoring, including the potential benefits to be gained by both parties. It continues
     with a practical exploration of some models and techniques and requires learners to demonstrate
     these within a coaching or mentoring conversation. Finally learners will consider how, and the
     extent to which, coaching and mentoring activity should be recorded and effective formats for
     doing this.

     This module will cover the following:
     • The nature, purpose and practice of coaching
     • The nature, purpose and practice of mentoring
     • Application of coaching and mentoring models and techniques to support individual learning
