Great content is competency-based

Technical education is about mastery of skills

Competency-based education is a method of teaching and assessment that is based on students demonstrating mastery of the skills they are expected to learn as they progress through their education.

Competency-based means that mastery of skills is the measure of success, not time spent in the classroom.

Once a student masters a competency, they move on to the next one.

This allows everyone to learn on their own terms, lowers stress for the student, and increases student success.

Great content is easy to organize

Our competency-based skills course library allows you to organize content into learning paths that align with:

  • job descriptions
  • organization-wide goals
  • departmental goals
  • academic programs
  • employee advancement opportunities
  • employee-defined learning goals
  • compliance-driven learning goals

Each skills course in our library teaches a single competency making it easy for you to create learning paths for every imaginable learning outcome.
