In 2006, POLWEL was appointed by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) as an Approved Assessment Organisation (AAO) under the Security Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) framework.POLWEL AAO works closely with the Police Licensing and Regulatory Department (PLRD) and WDA in the conduct of assessments for more than 30 Security WSQ modules, ranging from Certificate to Diploma level.

As an AAO, POLWEL is responsible for conducting assessments on candidates for the private security industry under the WSQ framework conducted by various Approved Training Organisations (ATOs). Candidates who are assessed to be competent in a particular WSQ module will be issued with a Statement of Attainment (SOA) by WDA and permitted to be deployed to perform the relevant security functions.    
  The core functions of POLWEL AAO are:-
* To register and schedule candidates for assessment.
* To ensure the quality and consistency of assessment conducted.
* To ensure that the system of managing the assessment regime meets the service standards defined by the authorities.

POLWEL AAO also conducts assessments for candidates who wish to opt for the Assessment-Only Pathway (AOP) that allows exempted individuals to achieve a SOA directly without undergoing training at one of the ATOs. Please click here for more details on AOP.
