Developing Competency Frameworks for Industry

  1. 2. RABQSA designs, develops & delivers <ul><li>Accredited, Competency-based personnel certification </li></ul><ul><li>JAS ANZ accredited to ISO/IEC 17024:2003 (17024) </li></ul><ul><li>Internationally recognised </li></ul><ul><li>Involves the assessment of knowledge, skill and personal attributes </li></ul><ul><li>Competency-based personnel certification </li></ul><ul><li>Developed to comply with 17024 </li></ul><ul><li>Internationally recognised </li></ul><ul><li>Involves the assessment of knowledge, skill and personal attributes </li></ul><ul><li>Qualification-based personnel certification </li></ul><ul><li>Internationally recognised </li></ul><ul><li>Involves the recognition of education, qualifications, and industry experience </li></ul><ul><li>Recognition of professional development </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>RABQSA facilitates the design and development of industry-specific certification schemes, against the requirements of the 17024 standard </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluate competence of candidates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Review and validation of the scheme by the scheme committee </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Certification is not restricted by financial or other limiting conditions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Examinations shall be fair, valid and reliable </li></ul></ul>_industry
  3. 4. <ul><li>RABQSA facilitates the composition of the committee with the scheme owner. The committee is composed, generally, of the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Subject matter experts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Industry, association or union representatives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consumer interest groups </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Government </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NGO’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>RTO’s </li></ul></ul>_industry
  4. 5. The scheme committee comes together to determine the knowledge, personal attributes and skills an individual must demonstrate to be deemed competent. _industry
  5. 6. <ul><li>The committee convenes face to face one two occasions to discuss, agree and document the certification requirements </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Draft V1 is developed at conclusion meeting 1 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>V1 outlines examination of any applicable knowledge, skills and attributes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Review of documentation is completed electronically </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Draft V2 is compiled from comments of V1 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Committee convenes to approve V2 and discuss roll out, launch, training and support of the certification product </li></ul></ul>_industry
  6. 7. Knowledge competencies must be defined for the scheme to ensure any work place knowledge, education or further training is identified, measurable and assessable. These competencies are often underpinned by a certified training course. _innovation
  7. 8. Knowledge competency can be linked to a persons work experience, further training and education. Where these requirements become part of the certification scheme requirements, technical experts may be called upon to assist in the assessment and confirmation of competency. The scheme committee is often the source of technical experts, as they represent a specific portion of the industry and are classified as a key stakeholder. Technical experts can also be utilized to perform or assist at skill examinations, where the nature of the work is highly specialized. The results of examination by technical experts will be included as evidence when processing a persons application. _industry
  8. 9. A persons aptitude to their work has often proved the difference between a technical expert and a professional. Value is often derived from a persons ability to communicate the requirements and present a pathway to success. _innovation
  9. 10. <ul><li>Personal attributes can be defined and measured. For example, a professional can be defined by the following attributes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Proactive & Organized </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Systematic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Logical </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Decisive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Observant </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Diplomatic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flexible </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Process Focused </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>People Sensitive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adaptable & Resourceful </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Confident </li></ul></ul><ul><li>These attributes can be measured psychometrically and can identify where a persons strengths and weaknesses lie. </li></ul><ul><li>RABQSA utilizes a customized, online assessment called PAAS Master to measure these attributes. </li></ul>_industry
  10. 11. Knowledge and personal attributes are mute without the ability to deliver them. Skill is the ability of a person to apply what they have learnt and gathered in a practical application. _innovation
  11. 12. The scheme committee will decide on the types of skills that are to be demonstrated. The skills will need to be accompanied by evidence or performance guides to measure the person against. The committee will need to determine what attributes the examiner also must possess and demonstrate in order to assess a person. _industry
  12. 13. The scheme committee may be called upon to nominate technical experts to assist with the determination of technical details, training/educational requirements or even work experience for confirmation of competence. _innovation
  13. 14. A successful person that has been deemed competent in all areas of the certification scheme will receive recognition with certification. _innovation
  14. 15. Key to Success: 1. Engage stakeholders 2. Develop competencies 3.Certify training providers 4. Recognize competent professionals The Americas +1 414 272 3937 Asia Pacific +61 2 4728 4600 North Asia +82 2 855 7017
