Logistics Professional Conversion Programme
What is the LPCP?
The logistics Professional Conversion Programme (LPCP) helps mid-career professionals, managers, executives or technicians (PMETs) gain a foothold in the supply chain & logistics industry.
This is a company-sponsored programme. Hence, individuals don't pay for the training. It also means that interested candidates will need to be employed in a supply chain/logistics role before they can join the programme.
Be a Singapore Citizen or Singapore Permanent Resident;
Participant must be newly hired PMET and nominated by an eligible participating company for the PCP within 3 months of their hiring;
Participant must not be in a similar job role prior to joining PCP and have at least 2 years of working experience; and
Participants are expected to hold a minimum of a Diploma or equivalent.
Minimum starting salary of: $2,500.00
The LPCP is a 9-months long programme, consisting of:
There are 18 days of face-to-face training spread out over one year. Hence it will take one to two days a month. These include 8 Workplace Skills Qualification (WSQ) training modules and assessments, industry visits and expert talks.

Participants will receive a WSQ Statement of Attainment (SOA) for each module successfully completed.
At the end of the programme, they will receive an Advanced Certificate in Logistics Planning and Operations from SCALA.
Each participant will be assigned a seasoned mentor who will work with them over the course of the one programme. These mentors are usually senior members of supply chain/logistics companies, or have retired from these positions.
The mentor will journey with the participant, meeting one day a month, going over all matters of the PCP, the work, and even personal development.
We acknowledge that entering a new industry can sometimes be unsettling, and the mentors help ease the transition and provide a much-needed third-party support for our participants.
All participants will undergo 1,328 hours of in-company on-the-job training (OJT). This is stretched over the course of the 9-months programme.
Participants choose the modules in consultation with their supervisor, who will also be their OJT Trainer.
Modules chosen should be in line with the job the participant is doing at work. There are 8 standard OJT modules in SCALA curriculum. In addition to the standard modules, participating companies can also include their own OJT module to reflect the special needs of the company. They can also customise SCALA's standard framework to meet their needs.
SCALA assists in these customisations.
