3.1 Managing Competency and Training

WINS 18 Jul 2022

The nuclear industry is highly regulated and requires individuals responsible for tasks that may affect safety or security to be suitably qualified and experienced.

A competency framework provides assurance that the licensee is implementing effective and proportionate arrangements for sustaining the competence of all personnel whose activities are under regulatory control.

This WINS International Best Practice Guide provides an explanation of competency-based professional development across an organisation, because security-focused professional development cannot be adopted in isolation. This Guide will explain terms such as demonstrably competent as well as how to develop a professional competency framework for security management and regulation. It then outlines the steps in developing a training programme and managing the personal development of staff to support the development, management and self-assessment of competency in an organisation.
