Five Continuing Education Fund courses de-registered

     The Labour and Welfare Bureau announced today (October 17) that five courses offered by the Asia Management Education Centre had been de-registered from the Continuing Education Fund (CEF) with immediate effect.

     The decision was made on the grounds that the centre failed to comply with the conditions of approval for CEF registration.

     A spokesman for the Labour and Welfare Bureau said, "The centre is required to inform all affected CEF applicants about the de-registration. The centre must not accept new applications for the five courses or promote them as CEF reimbursable courses.  

     "The centre has to continue the registered courses which have already begun. For those which have not yet begun, the centre must refund in full all course fees and related payments to the CEF applicants."

     A list of the five CEF courses de-registered is at Annex.  The information is also available on the website of the Office of Continuing Education Fund (OCEF) (

     The spokesman stressed that the OCEF would continue to closely monitor CEF courses provided by training institutions. Apart from authenticating attendance records of learners, assessment results and their claims for reimbursement, it will conduct surprise visits to course providers to ensure that the conditions of approval are fully complied with.

     For enquiries, please contact the OCEF at 3101 5521 or write via email, post or by fax.
