Validation of Competency (VOC)

Employers have a duty of care under Work Health and Safety/ Occupational Health and Safety laws to ensure that there employees/contractors are competent in equipment operation and the tasks to be performed.. It is no longer acceptable for employers to “assume an employee is competent”, which makes Validation of Competency assessment ideal for contractual arrangements and pre-employment competency checks.

WA Advanced Training Academy can verify competencies on all High Risk Licence and Non-High Risk competencies.

Our VOC’s are derived from Nationally Recognised units of competency, Australian and International Standards, Manufacturer’s Manuals, Legislation and company procedures. We are approved to undertake Validation of Competency Assessments on behalf of BHP, RIO, Freo Cranes, Qube, Toll and Bechtel to name a few.
