OVERVIEW

The Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) of SPRING Singapore, with the support of Geotechnical Society of Singapore (GeoSS), Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and Land Transport Authority (LTA) has introduced an accreditation scheme for site investigation firms. As part of the accreditation requirements for site investigation firms, site investigation supervisors of the firms are required to undergo a training course on site investigation. Upon successfully completing the course, they can be registered as “Certified Site Investigation Supervisor” with GeoSS.
