Cat 1 Safety Competency Solutions

As we move into a more competence based training and assessments era in the rail industry your company needs to be aware of what will be required. 
Competence: is the ability to do a good job. Competence is fully satisfactory performance. The organization defines what is meant by fully satisfactory performance. For example, for most jobs it means being able to perform job tasks independently to the required level of quality, quantity, timeliness, cost-effectiveness, safety or outcomes.
For some positions, the organisation may define fully satisfactory performance at lower or higher levels. For example, it may be acceptable for a new employee undergoing training to perform some tasks at a lower level and guided by a supervisor or trainer. Organisations may designate higher performance standards for certain employees. For example, a team leader may be expected to perform job tasks independently and also trouble shoot unusual situations.
To define competence in your organisation we can:

  • Develop competency maps for jobs in the organization. Competency maps define the required general areas of competence and the specific skills, knowledge, abilities and behaviours of a job.
  • Set the performance standards required by the organisation.

How can we support you, we are respectful of diverse organizational cultures and will produce deliverables in line with your expectations.  We will train your employees to do the training development work in the future and will even leverage your existing training material to protect your previous investments in training programs.
