What is competency-based training?
Competency-based training is a method of training that focuses on a learner’s ability to receive, respond to and process information in order to achieve competency. It is geared to the attainment and demonstration of skills to meet industry-defined standards, rather than to a learner’s achievement relative to that of others.
What is competency-based assessment?
Competency-based assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgements about whether a person has achieved competency. It is sometimes termed a criterion-referenced process, because it involves people being assessed against fixed criteria or pre-determined benchmarks – such as those expressed in units of competency.
