The maximum duration for the Cyber NSF Scheme is 4 years. Hence, no extension is available for those who opt for 4 years of service. Cyber Specialist on the 3-year scheme may opt to switch to the 4-year scheme before they graduate from the Cyber Specialist Cadet Course (CSCC), depending on your performance
and MINDEF/SAF's operational requirements.
Once the contract is in effect, you will be subject to the terms and conditions of the contract. Cyber Specialists on the 3-year or 4-year scheme are expected to remain committed to their training and operational roles for the duration of their contract.
Cyber Specialists who are interested to continue serving in MINDEF/SAF may wish to consider a career in MINDEF/SAF. There are uniformed and non-uniformed options for service in cybersecurity vocations.
