Steps to take

  • Q: How will I be evaluated?
    A: Different methods will be suggested for the evaluation of each of the competencies you want to have recognized. For example, a content specialist may, with your permission and that of your employer, come to your workplace to observe you performing a task. In other cases, you might have to do an assignment at home and then meet with a specialist who may ask you questions about the method you used or ask you to make modifications. There are many different evaluation methods, and you will be able to discuss them with the specialists and the counsellor in charge of your file and to agree on the methods that are best suited to your situation.
  • Q: Will I have to go back to school if I need training because I still need to acquire competencies in full or in part to achieve my goal?
    A: Determining the training you need and, if applicable, proposing different means of doing so are an integral part of the recognition of competencies. At the end of the process, you will receive a report containing the list of competencies recognized, recommended training and suggestions as to how to go about acquiring the missing competencies.
