At ACMI, we provide vocational and language courses for migrants living in Singapore to improve and expand their skillsets holistically. These courses aim to equip them with practical skills that they can apply in their everyday life or cultivate an interest that they may not have had the time to pursue previously. Through attending these courses, migrants also forge bonds with like-minded individuals, building additional pillars of support in the community.

Registration for our Skills Development begins on Friday, 5 April 2024 and ends on Sunday, 2 June 2024.

You can register for your desired courses here.

For any enquiries, please email sd.acmi@catholic.org.sg or call 6801 7444 / 6964 8000. Closed on Fridays, Saturdays & Public Holidays.
