    Good luck for your personal career development!
    Oh, didnt know there is a different catergory for HR. Thought HR always cover everything. Do we need to have accounting background for the Payroll Administration?

      Is PSB Diploma in Human Resource Management good enough? Cant find the HR course in SIM website.

        I wouldn't recommend PSB because its not as recognised as SIM, as SIM is now knows as UniSIM, which is a true university. But I suppose its really what you want in further education and your background as well.

        If you already have a diploma in business, you will find similar subjects in PSB. And also it depends on your age because you will be studying most likely with some O/A level students? Do you want that kind of environment?

        On the other hand, the specialist diploma will put you in a more professional edge as you will be interacting with adult participants who have experience in their field, wherever they come from.

        Maybe you can give SIM a call to find out more, they might have revamped the course and that's why its not on their website anymore.

          For Payroll Administration, an accounting background is not mandatory although it help due to the fact that you have to run the IR8A every year and maybe even handle some tax matters. But I believe you can pick it up on the job.

            Hi, I need some advise again. Have call up SIM today, they are no longer running HR programe. Now is between 2 choice: PSB Academy(Dip in HRM) or Singapore Human Resource Institute(Dip in BHRM). Which school will you consider? Both school are able to offer the SDF under NTUC Surrogate Employer Programme(NTUC-SEP). Subsidze up to 80% of the course fee.

              Oh, they no longer have that course? Gosh, it was so popular, I am surprised they removed it!

              It really boils down to the curriculum of the diploma, so without that information, I won't be able to dispense advice.

                        blurblur..do u have a degree already? cos if so, i would suggest taking the grad dip instead of dip. grad dip is only 1 year..faster and cheaper. so long that u have degree already, they will accept u. otherwise, if you have dip but couple of yrs of relevant experience, also can

                          No, I only have Dip in BA. Currently doing some basic HR stuff (eg, expenses claim, applying for Employment Pass, tracking of leave) in my current office.

                              blurblur, if u want to consider grad dip instead, i think it is still worth a try because i do know of ppl with dip who got into grad dip class. no harm trying or to try applying for both

                                yes agree with fern, coz i took a Grad Dip with SIM before, and i know of students who only have a Diploma, but then it's preferrable that you have a couple of years of experience before they will accept you.

                                for those without HR experience, they might try the junior positions e.g. HR assistant as some companies do not mind training them. it will be helpful to have at least some HR knowledge e.g. studies though.
