To enhance quality assurance of CEF courses, the enhancement measures of CEF implemented from 1 April 2019 required all CEF courses to be registered under the Qualifications Register (QR). Previously registered CEF courses without the QR registration must obtain such registration within the transitional period of four years, or else the course registered under CEF will expire on 31 March 2023 as scheduled. Enrollment in courses without valid CEF registration will not be eligible for claiming CEF subsidy.
A batch of CEF courses will be invalidated on 1 April 2023 due to the absence of QR registration within the timeframe. Learners should choose prudently in enrolling in CEF courses and pay attention to the validity of the registration of the CEF courses to meet the eligibility to apply for fee reimbursement after successful completion of the course. Please visit the course search engine at the CEF website to ascertain the expiry date and other information of respective CEF courses on https://www.wfsfaa.gov.hk/en/resources/course_search/index.htm?category=cef. For enquiries, please contact the Office of CEF via the hotline at 3142 2277.
