Verification of Current Competency (VOCC)
Verification of Competency (VOCC) is a method of assessment that assists employers meet Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) requirements while ensuring staff have maintained a competent level of skills to operate equipment and perform their activities safely and in accordance with latest regulatory requirements.
New national OHS harmonisation laws, effective January 2012, bring a greater due diligence and obligation to employers to ensure every individual has “current competency”.
Assessing for Verification of Competency enables businesses to confirm that their employees are competent in their skills and using equipment. It is commonly used in many industries for pre-employment checks, contractual arrangements or site requirements.
AptLee Training Academy Pty Ltd recommends to all clients that they initiate a system of Current ‘Competency Verification’ regularly assessing existing workers and capturing new employees to identify any gaps in existing certification skills and to identify opportunities for employee up-skilling.
Our experienced and qualified trainers and assessors are readily available to perform ‘VOCCs’ for your teams, work closely with each client to ensure The Right Training | for The Right Price | and at The Right Timing before starting, and ongoing.
