Competence Assessor

Competence AssessorPurpose

The Competence Assessor course has been designed to enable delegates to assess competencies at all levels, rather than complete standard assessments measuring knowledge, giving organisations a clear and accurate picture of the competencies within their organisation. This is especially relevant in regulated environments.

Upon successful completion of the training and with evidence that the skills and knowledge have been successfully applied in the workplace , the delegate would be eligible to conduct workplace assessments, provided that they themselves are technically competent in the discipline being assessed.

Target Audience

Line Managers, Supervisors, Team Leaders, Safety Officers, any other management level employee.
