not sure abt nationality, is there a recommendation? Requirements are household duties - cleaning, cooking, drop and pick up toddler from nursery and look after toddler as well.

RIP - you can take the course online:

http://cec.sp.edu.sg/webapps/login/

it's all quite simple and straightforward - basically pointing out the do/don'ts of hiring a foreign domestic worker. once you've completed the reading you take a test and then print out the certificate at the end to submit with your application when processing your FDWs paperwork.

you must have a FIN number (you will get this with either the employment or dependent pass) to take the test online. i took the test with my FIN number but our helpers paperwork was processed under my husbands name - so it's ok as long as one of you has completed the course.
