Competency Based Training is training that is designed to allow a learner to demonstrate their ability to do something. This may be to make a coffee, create a brochure, lead a tour or deal with a difficult customer.
The key thing about Competency Based Training is that you either can or cannot (yet) do the thing that you are learning about. Learners are not expected to perform tasks better than others, or in competition to others. For example, there are no “extra points” for extra effort or performance. Learners simply have to demonstrate they can do a task, activity or exercise well enough to be assessed as “competent”. In other words, they must be successful at the task they are given to complete that unit of work.
There are no formal Learner pre-requisites.
