Competency Management Process



Job Competency Profiling

Leveraging both our specialist resources around competency consulting and subject matter expertise, as well as our inventory of industry validated CMAPs, PetroSkills engages with the internal SMEs of an organization to methodically define the specific Skills, Competencies, and associated Levels of Proficiency that may be relevant to key site-specific job roles.

Through a series of Job Competency Profiling (JCP) workshops, a comprehensive Job Level Requirements (JLR) matrix is defined. This collaborative engagement ensures that the Job Competency Profiles created for an organization not only measure up to vetted industry competency standards, but also align to the site-specific requirements of each organization.
