Without PR you are wasting your time as nobody want someone without experience and furthermore, without experience you probably would never qualify for an EP.

Secondly, without a job you will not be able to apply for PR.

Thanks for your reply...

My husband is here on EP and is applying for PR, I d have exp in the field of training for 2.5 years ..over and above I was in the airline industry prior to that.
What I need to know is about ACTA certification...is it worth it? they told me it is the top most course in training in singapore..is it true?

coz currently I am doing a PG diploma from delhi from ISTD...but i heard it is not recognised here..although it has a lot ofweightage in India...

just want to know if I am in the right direction by going for ACTA will my chances of getting a job with ACTA and PR increase?

Kindly give me some info about the course...

I guess one thing that people find annoying, is not understanding all these abbreviations ACTA, that keep poping up. So how can anyone condsider the post.

If it is only directed to people within the industry ok, although you haven't been employed in 10 months, maybe you need to be more explicit of your skills...I mean Corporate trainer, soft skills, is another guessing game for many and I have also done corporate business English training.

Let me give you an example of what it feels like, people within my industry of experience may recognise some of the examples, others will be totally lost. This is specifically for the benefit of the original poster, to be more detailed, I don't mean to offend, but I am becoming quite annoyed with the bastardisation of English, just lately so here you are OP AAC, ATC, GPMG, AIIC.

You are probably highly skilled, but guidance and advice is restricted to people like SMS, who appears to know what you are talking about, would it be the accounting certification by any chance?
