Competency Training’s Subject Matter Expert/Assessor will work with your company to map existing training content and outcomes to the units of competency.

As your employees complete their required training pathway and evidence of successful training completion is provided, the relevant units of competency/qualification will be awarded to the employees.

Where gaps are identified, other options such as training will be provided to meet the requirements of the units of competency.
