It’s not easy to gain commitment from all levels of the business to complete and update critical task analysis, develop assessment criteria or complete competence assessments which are ‘fit for purpose’ and based on *regulatory guidelines.

Effective competence management systems can help you to:

  • Achieve business objectives
  • Contribute to business performance improvements
  • Manage major hazards or business risks

How to do Competence Management?

Cogent Skills Training can help you with a Competence Management System Review.

We support our clients by developing a review, which identifies commercial and safety critical tasks to help businesses operate to industry best practice guidelines for Competence Management.

Every business operates differently, so our bespoke approach is to work together, to help you to examine, improve and develop:

  • Competence management, staff assessment and capabilities resources registers
  • Identification of strengths and areas for improvement within existing systems
  • Independent benchmarking against HSE inspection guidelines
  • Internal capabilities to deliver and embed a sustainable solution
  • Tools and techniques to equip key personnel with competence management and assessor skills.
  • Workforce Competence Management System policies and procedures

Since 2008, when Cogent Skills Training started tackling sector specific skills shortages by standardising training across an industry, we have been working with a range of companies to support these important activities and have a strong track record in helping businesses with Competence Management System Development.
