Verification of Competency


Verification of Competency (VOC) is a method of assessment used to demonstrate the worker's ability to operate equipment and/or undertake the responsibilities of these roles in the workplace. Baseline Training offers a VOC service that can be conducted onsite without interrupting productivity and contextualised to meet the organisation's operational readiness. It is commonly used in many industries for pre-employment checks, contractual arrangements or site requirements.

Under the 2012, National OHS harmonisation laws, greater importance has been placed onto employers for their due diligence and obligation to ensure an individual has “current competency”.
Assessing for Verification of Competency enables organisations to confirm their employees are competent in the knowledge and skills to use various equipment in the workplace. 

  • Employers require evidence that employee’s skills are current, which is achieved through the validation process of VOC sessions.
  • Due to some legislative and industry requirements, organisations are required to conduct “refresher course/s” for various units of competency (UoC).
  • While UoC’s do not have expiry dates, there is a requirement for currency to meet legislative requirements. (It should be noted, that this requirement may not extend to high-risk licences; which expire every five years)
 Working with industry leading clients, Baseline Training develops a structured process allowing for flexibility to meet client needs whilst maintaining a high standard of assessment. Assessors will always be an industry expert holding all relevant qualifications, either working within the industry and/or having industry currency; together with years of industry and Vocational Training experience.
