Collection & Refund of Deposits

Prior to 10 October 2022, IMAS collected full fees for company-sponsored individuals enrolling for our Core CPD & Financial Training Scheme (FTS) accredited programmes. These individuals must be from Singapore-based Financial Institutions (FIs) regulated by MAS (licensed or exempt from licensing by MAS) or Fintech firms certified by Singapore Fintech Association. Where applicable, the FIs/Fintech will submit their own funding claims for our Financial Training Scheme (FTS) programmes directly to IBF through their IBF portal.

From 10 October 2022 onwards , FIs and Fintechs will no longer be able to submit their own funding claims via the IBF Portal. As such, IMAS will be assisting participants who are eligible for funding with their funding claims. To facilitate this, IMAS will be collecting additional information, including NRIC number and date-of-birth from the participants and an upfront deposit amounting to the funding subsidies.

(a) The deposits collected will be returned to the participant’s designated bank account upon the successful claim of funding subsidies from IBF;

(b) As mandated by IBF, funding claims can only be submitted to IBF after the course end date. For the e-learning courses on iLearn, the course end date will be 6 months from the course start date;

(c) In the event the participant does not complete the programmes that are funded by IBF, the deposit will not be refunded as IMAS will not be able to make claims without the course completion.

(d) IMAS reserves the right to retain the deposit unless there are extenuating circumstances. The appeal will be assessed on a case-by-case basis;
