Trainees are expected to be present at all scheduled sessions. If, for any reason, you are unable to be present, please email Course Chair and Admin Executive (Training) to apply for a leave of absence preferably one day earlier, citing the reason.
A trainee on medical leave is required to furnish the medical certificate to the Admin Executive (Training) by the following training session.
A minimum of 80% attendance of total course hours is strictly required. A trainee who is absent from class for more than 20% of course hours without notice and valid reasons may be deemed to have withdrawn from the course.
Additionally, 90% attendance is required every month for trainees who are Student’s Pass holders. CCC will notify the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority Singapore (ICA) whenever a Student’s Pass holder has a monthly attendance of less than 90%. Additionally, Student’s Pass holders who miss 7 consecutive days of class will be liable to have their Student’s Pass cancelled with effect from the 8th day and the Letter of Cancellation will be sent to the student’s place of residence in Singapore as registered with CCC.
