WELCOME TO SINGAPORE SPA INSTITUTE (SSI)
In December 2008, SSI was appointed by SkillsFuture Singapore – SSG (then Workforce Development Agency – WDA) to offer training for the spa sector under the Tourism Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ).
SSI offers an extensive range of training programmes from Certificate to Diploma levels catering to everyone in the spa and wellness industry, regardless whether they are new or seasoned practitioners.
SPA Institute Pte Ltd (hereinafter known as SPA Institute) was founded in 1997. Its historical focus has been providing consultancy, training and assessment in the spa industry, with a particular focus on spa therapists’ knowledge and skills.
Singapore SPA Institute (SSI) Pte Ltd was set up to merge the operations of the former SPA Institute Pte Ltd (established in 1997) and the newly acquired operations of a Spa Continuing Education Training (CET) Centre based on the WSQ framework. It is a 100% locally owned enterprise, incorporated in January 2009 to provide quality WSQ training and assessment for the spa industry.
Presently, SSI has a dedicated and professional team of trainers and administrative staff. Our trainers are all ACTA certified with the relevant qualifications. They also have many years of working and training experience in the spa and wellness industry.
SSI ensures that the training programmes and courses are developed according to the needs of the industry, such that they are:
- relevant to the spa industry
- attuned to industry standards, trends and demands
- accessible to industry personnel with minimal barriers
