Skill brings together a persons learnt knowledge, and experiences and delivers an outcome to a defined work process, job task or skilful activity.
Skill examination is the assessment of a persons application of knowledge in a real world or simulated setting.
By observing a persons actions we can see how their personal attributes affect the application on knowledge in a skilful manner.
Staff arranges for Skill Examination between applicant and Examiner
Examiner performs On-The-Job Examination against Job Task List
Examiner confirms the practical application of knowledge
Examiner reports outcomes of skill examination to staff for certification fulfilment
Personal attributes measure a persons attitude to their surroundings, work and relationships.
Often a persons attributes can mean the difference between a valued service, a safe work environment, a caring manner, and a request to return or continue & complete a job task.
Attributes often predict a trait, level of risk, or potential to succeed.
Tools include personality profiling, risk analysis, and job fit analysis.
We aim to contribute to the success of every industry and to drive progress by having certified professionals in every country.
