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.

In-house courses

Do you want to set-up online training courses for internal use ?

Upon request DTC may develop and/or host e-learning courses for in-house purposes.

Please feel free contact us for more information.

Course structure explained

Our e-learning courses are typically build from multiple building blocks called lessons.

These lessons are build with smaller building blocks called topics.

Quizzes may be used at course, lesson and/or topic level.

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.

Wat is a reference course ?

A reference course is a collection of knowledge & information bundled neatly together and wel organised, which people can refer to relevant sections of whenever they wish/need.

Often the info in a reference course might already be out there for free on the internet, but in a disorganized and low quality way.

By pulling it all together in one place and teaching it in a clear way, we hope to create real value and help to solve people’s problems.
