New WMO Guide to Competency published

22 February, 2018

The CAeM Expert Team on Education and Training (ET-ETC) and the WMO Education and Training Office (ETR) has jointly prepared a new WMO Guide to Competency under the expert leadership of Andrea Henderson of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (core member of ET-ETC). The guide will meet a great demand within the international community as it includes general material on defining and writing competencies, implementing competency frameworks that meet organizational needs, assessing for competencies, competency-based training and QMS-compliance. Furthermore, the new guide will interface with examples of various competency frameworks that already exist or that are being developed in a WMO context (e.g. for aviation, marine, etc.).

The new WMO Guide to Competency is available via the WMO e-Library as publication WMO-No. 1205. Direct link to the English language version is available here. Translation into other official languages will follow soon.
