Individual Competence Certification

Simple, user-friendly competence management

Essentially, competence management is a combination of knowledge, skill and experience that taken together indicate that a candidate is capable of performing the duties of a given role in a wide range of circumstances. Obtaining externally verified certificates of competence is important both for individual candidates and operating companies.

The majority of contracts now require that personnel can demonstrate competence, and employers are increasingly preferring candidates with robust, external certification to less rigorous in-house schemes.

The practice of demonstrating competence in the offshore industry has come a long way in recent years, driven in part by our efforts to rationalise and streamline the process to the benefit of both individuals and operating companies.

For individuals, we offer a straightforward, streamlined route into the MTCS Competence Programme. This is in the form of the Individual Competence Assessments (ICA). These assessment packs require the individual and their assessor/witness to complete simple forms, which are then externally assessed with supporting documentation.
