Yep, sure does. I've lost 4 employees over the past 15 months due to distance degrees. Looks like they are being looked at too kindly now days. But don't let that stop you from trying, the worst they can do is reject you. They don't cane you if you don't qualify. See if you qualify on the eligibility test on the MOM site. Surely, I needn't put the link here as you are an IT guru, you should be able to find it okay.

Congratulations. I like seeing cases like those. They tend to give hope to others who are sweating renewals due to certifications being scrutinized closer. It would appear not all distance degrees are created equal. That's good news.

I did distance education and this is my 4th year in Singapore. I had some problems when my EP was renewed for the 3rd year as it was rejected and had to go for an appeal before getting it renewed
