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."
"The service provided by Polaris Learning in terms of assessor training, internal verifier training and consultancy has supported Odfjell Drilling (UK) at all levels within our organisation in maintaining our Competence Assurance Management System."
"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."
“Effective knowledge of our company competence program, well taught.”
"We are now in a stronger position to manage our competency management system with a good ratio of assessors to candidates. Polaris Learning have always shown to be professional and courteous towards myself and others that we have placed on training with them."
"I found the assessor course to be very effective when I was gathering my evidence, making me realise just how important it is to be able to correctly assess someone's knowledge and competency and how that can reflect on their abilities in the workplace."
"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."
"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 services from Polaris Learning has given us more employee buy-in to our competency system. We are now more educated on competency and have a better quality product. 80% of our employees are now inducted on our competency system."
"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."
Our experience puts us in a great position to understand what will give you the best result for competence and risk management. We can help you with the strategic decisions and the short term requirements.

TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS
We have provided a range of services to Well Ops to enable them to get their Competency Management System on track:
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.
