The main requirements are:

1) min 21 years old
2) min 4 'O' levels - there are tests you can take if you have this
3) Attend and pass the required RES exams

The RES will take about 3 months to complete including time for exams and result notification. The course itself is about 6-7 weeks depending on which school you go to.

The course and exam fees can be reimbursed if you are an NTUC member. Ask the school about this when you sign up.

You can take your time to decide which agency to join. Find a mentor with whom you are comfortable with and one that can help you progress.

I am an RES lecturer with a school.

You can write to me at fxnhomes@gmail.com to get more info.
