Mind the (future) skills gap

Mind the skills gap

The “war on talent” and related skills gap are a serious mid-term risk for most industrial companies in developed countries according to BNR, the Dutch business radiostation.

For this reason it is highly recommended to improve HR retention rates and provide continuous education to your workforce.

DTC’s Education & Certification platform might assist you with this second objective.

Assessments explained

In order to determine the appropriate online training (level), we have created so-called “prior knowledge assessments”.

During the course, quizzes will be regularly used to verify the absorption of lessons and/or topics.

Once an e-learning course have been completed, we conduct a “final assessment” and may optionally certify “succesfull completion” of the course.

ISO 9001:2015 Clause 7.2 about managing competence

ISO 9001:2015 Clause 7 requires organisations to:

1. Establish the required competency requirements of person(s) doing work under its control that affects the performance and effectiveness of the management system,

2. Establish the competency of these persons. (IE: Appropriate education, training, or experience,)

3. Take appropriate actions where applicable, for persons to acquire the necessary competence, and then evaluate the effectiveness of these actions. EG: Training, mentoring, reassignment of currently employed persons or the hiring or contracting of competent persons.

Appropriate documented information needs to also be retained as evidence of competence.
