A Tool for Trainers

National Occupational Standards are used as a benchmark to assess a worker’s skills and knowledge and ultimately, to determine if s/he qualifies for certification through the CMCP, but these documents have many other applications.

Train to the National Standard

Make your in-house training more efficient, while also developing a highly-skilled workforce that is trained to Canada’s national standard.

Perform a Skills Gap Analysis

Make training more efficient by using the National Occupational Standards to identify skills gaps and execute targeted training programs for new hires.

Facilitate the Transfer of Knowledge

Engage mature workers and help to capture and retain critical knowledge derived from experience within your company by facilitating knowledge transfer through mentorship. The standard can function as a tool for guided discussion to ensure critical knowledge related to the various tasks in a position is effectively captured and transferred to new, less experienced workers, or in the case of succession planning.
