Competency Modeling (Free, Members Only)

This one-day class is the debut of our course created by lifetime WRIPAC member, Rod Freudenberg, PhD., and Shelley Langan.  Through a combination of lecture, discussion, and individual and group exercises, participants will gain an understanding of the terms and application of "Competency" and "Competency Modeling" and how it complements Job Analysis.  This course will address issues that competency modeling might resolve, design parameters, key design features, rating and sorting duties and competencies and how to apply competencies in examination design.

Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of a classification specification for their organization for use in class activities.  It is preferred that the classification be a fairly general, widely known job type for ease in group activities.

Additionally, if possible, participants are encouraged to bring a laptop computer with an up-to-date version of Excel for group activities throughout the day.  (The laptop is not required but will enrich the day.)

Pre-requisite:  Completion of formal training in job analysis or experience conducting job analyses with a reasonable-sized sample of incumbents.  When registering, please specify your training/experience in this area.
