The courses are designed to be portable, so that Competency Training can take everything it needs to wherever its clients need it.

Many of the courses currently on Competency Training's calendar were originally developed in response to enquiries from clients. In today's marketplace the skills present in your workforce represent your competitive edge. Courses can be delivered on almost any topic related to electricity in industry, and a few others besides.

Experienced electrical and instrumentation trainers and engineers

Competency Training's courses are developed and delivered by experienced engineers and tradespeople who have a depth of knowledge and experience that is second-to-none, as well as a genuine passion for training. All the company's trainers hold a Certificate IV in workplace training and assessment and have extensive experience working in the electrical and instrumentation industries.

Physical training and assessment aids

Training personnel utilise Competency Training's extensive collection of physical training and assessment aids to maximise the hands-on component of the courses, while ensuring that the underpinning knowledge is effectively transferred.

Their experience allows them to answer questions from participants clearly and meaningfully, relating the subject material directly to the workplace. This stimulates discussion and interaction between the attendees. Small class sizes facilitate this process.

The end result is training that connects with the participants and delivers the learning outcomes that employers require.
