Competency verification methods: Going beyond checklists and skills fairs
Competency verification is necessary to measure an employee's skill level and satisfy regulators.

Learn how you can free yourself from the monotony and tedium of endless checklists and skills fairs and effectively measure a variety of skill domains - technical, critical thinking, and interpersonal.
