Continuing Competence Training & Assessment Preparation

(1 day course with simulated mock test)

Preparation is key.....

Serac UK has developed a course based around the Continuing Competence Syllabus to prepare you for your continuing competence test. As part of the Serac UK course, delegates will be able to sit a simulated Competence Assessment.

Quote from Wamitab;
‘In England and Wales only, CIWM and WAMITAB's Operator Competence Scheme has a requirement for individuals to keep their competence up to date. Therefore all competent persons falling within the Scheme are required to demonstrate ‘Continuing Competence’ and this will be appropriate to the level of proportional risk posed by the facility.
Continuing Competence tests that were required to be achieved by 29th February 2012 have now concluded. If you were required to achieve your test by the 29th February 2012 but have not done so, please refer to your Environment Agency regulator for further guidance.
The second period of Continuing Competence testing has now begun, lasting from 1st March 2012 to 28th February 2014.’

Individuals will gain an understanding of applicable generic legislation, generic health and safety, and generic environmental protection required by the Syllabus of the CIWM and WAMITAB’s Operator Competence Scheme.

This interactive one day course is designed to equip Learners with the knowledge and understanding of these Generic sections of the Continuing Competence test, and to undertake a simulated mock competence assessment test.
