The Competency-Based Training (CBT) program is an approach to vocational education and training that places emphasis on what a person can do in the workplace as a result of completing a program of training. The training is based on curriculum development from the competency standards specified by the industry and the learning is modular/self-paced in its structure wherein the trainee is allowed to progress at his/her own pace. It allows for multiple entry and exit in the system. It also recognized both on-and off-the-job delivery modes. After successfully completing the program, the trainee is required to undergo competency assessment and acquire a National Certification.
Each training program consists of competencies that a person needs to achieve based on the given qualification in their chosen field of occupation. It describes the core, common and basic competencies required for the performance of a specific occupation. A value-adding feature of the CBT program approach is the integration of the basic computer literacy, work ethics and values development, entrepreneurship development, leadership and gender sensitivity training.
These programs are nationally promulgated to ensure that the trainees receive quality, relevant and employable skills, knowledge and attitude. Free Training Courses:
