SAFVC Facts: How are SAFVC Volunteers selected?
“The SAF will screen through applicants carefully to find those with suitable aptitudes and skills to be pioneer batches of the SAFVC that can strengthen our national defence.” – Dr Ng Eng Hen, Defence Minister
To be an SAFVC Volunteer, you’ll first have to be a Singaporean or Permanent Resident between the ages of 18 and 45.
SAFVC Volunteers will need to meet the SAF’s requirements so that they can contribute in their roles safely and effectively. The requirements vary. Some of these include relevant work experience, physical fitness levels and aptitude. For example, requirements for the Field Psychologist role include a degree in Psychology and at least three years of professional work experience.
Like our active personnel and NSmen, SAFVC volunteers will also undergo the necessary screening to ensure their suitability for the various roles.
