  3. The Verification of Competence Assessment Program

    Verification of Competence is based on the principle of assessing the level of competence of each individual and/or team – and then reporting any areas requiring improvement.


    The Technical Assessment consists of two parts: the assessment of the technical installation on functionality, state of readiness, instructions for use and level of maintenance; and the assessment of each individual in terms of their safety-critical competencies.


    The outcome of each assessment is captured in a spider graph with indicators for strengths and weaknesses – highlighting future training needs. In situations where the outcome of the assessment is below a predetermined level, refresher training will be proposed and delivered onboard if possible. In the management report – a ‘to do’ list will identify areas of concern that require immediate action. This list will be shared direct with the onboard management.
