Training on-the-job has added benefits

Training in the workplace with the nationally recognised qualifications Competenz supports is an effective way to build skills. Employees:

  • learn using their workplace equipment and processes – so the learning’s relevant to the business they work in 
  • gain skills that meet industry standards and qualifications that are recognised across New Zealand
  • learn in the workplace – meaning few absences and little downtime.
