Ms Aries Tan, 21, who graduated from Singapore Polytechnic last February with a diploma in accountancy, was one of those who took up the free CET modules. She attended four modules, which stacked for a Diploma (Conversion) in Web and Programming, from April 2020 to February this year.
Ms Tan, who is now doing a degree in accountancy at Nanyang Technological University, said she applied for the modules when her planned internship fell through due to the Covid-19 pandemic."I saw the opportunity to sign up for these CET modules as a good chance for me to level up my knowledge," she said. "Digitalisation and technology will affect my chosen field study which is accountancy. So the modules will equip me with the skills to help in my accountancy career journey."
Ms Tan said that the course gave her a foundation in computer programming language Python, which helped her in university where there was a related module. "It really helped me in my first semester when my classmates were struggling but I had the basic foundations from the CET course. If not for CET, I would not have picked up these technological tools like Python and Java that I find really interesting."
