A look at how competencies can be used in courses


Although it is abstract to many, competencies are becoming more and more used in workplace employee job descriptions and often help drive the training path for the employee.

A Competency is the ability of to do a specific task correctly. Each of these competencies are usually further defined as a set of behaviours that enable the identification, development and assessment of the behaviours and competency in an individual. Competencies are often grouped into specific domains making a 3 tier system:

Domain → Competency → Behaviour.

This presentation will have a look at different approaches taken in two courses as to how competencies were defined, used and measured and reported on.
