This module is designed to introduce participants to the basic concepts and theories involved in Competence Management Programs. Training employees is expensive and once they are trained, are they truly competent to perform the task? On the job training can be very effective but it is quite often unorganized and can put new staff in dangerous situations for which they are not always prepared. Competence Management Programs help to save cost on training, focus an employee on what they need to know and where they can find what they need. They also help put the minds of front line managers, and customers at ease when they know that their personnel have been assessed as competent.
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: 1. Explain competence in a work environment; 2. Relate how skill, knowledge and attitude are tied to competence; 3. Illustrate the basic outline of a competence management program; 4. Describe the role training and work instructions play in developing competent employees; 5. Explain what is meant by a gap analysis; and 6. Explain the basic structure of an assessment and verification.
