Competency Management Systems

  • "We have delivered a workable competency framework in the North Sea for all offshore positions.  We have started recording progress and can confidently measure where our competency gaps are.  As a start up company with no competency framework in place this has been an invaluable service and has made a worthwhile contribution to our expected success."

  • "Working with Polaris Learning, we were able to create in-house competency standards which we are able to manage, saving us time and money, and our assessors benefit from a tailored course working around our own standards.  I would recommend Polaris Learning for the time and effort they take to understand your needs as a company and what you are looking for."

  • "Working with Polaris Learning, we received more clarity on how to structure our CMS system, guidance on paperwork required to manage our CMS and training for those involved in our system.  A major benefit to us was Polaris Learning's experience of working with big clients in the same industry, we could benefit from knowing what has and hasn't worked for them."

    Crewing Manager Topaz Energy and Marine, Dubai
  • "I wasn't sure what to expect and how my previous experience would relate - the trainer was excellent at using my own experiences to highlight the training points at hand."

  • "The content of the course was well defined and I only had a few concerns when it came to gathering evidence and answering some of the knowledge questions.  My assessor was able to guide me through some of the more challenging questions and shed light on what evidence was needed."

Working with Northern Offshore

Northern Offshore initially needed help to get their Competency Management System working.  We started to overhaul the system by streamlining the set-up and ultimately getting the system back on track.

We continue to work very closely with the team at Northern Offshore to support the entire running of the Competency Management System. This includes onsite support to their rigs based in Europe and other international regions.
