CITREP+ and SkillsFuture Credit

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." - Benjamin Franklin

There are numerous investment options but one has to be careful in making the right choice. Unlike investing in traditional assets like a house or an object, which over time loses the satisfaction derived due to what researches call hedonistic adaptation, investing in improving knowledge sustains the level of satisfaction for a long period of time. When you learn something new, you look for applying the knowledge in different contexts and the knowledge continuously adds to your experiences.

Below are some of our courses to enhance your skills and experience.

Pursuit, accumulation and application of knowledge are the closest you can come to feeling fulfilled. What’s more, learning is an activity that puts you in the driver seat and gives you the autonomy to influence the direction. When you set learning as your goal, external factors such as market conditions, economic volatility etc., take a back seat. Achieving your learning goal is to a large extending dependent on you and not on external factors.
