Extending beyond competency tracking, CMDS offers comprehensive eLearning content that can aid in employee development and training
Required certification (i.e. First Aid training, and H2S training), as well as mandatory reading (i.e. COP's, SOP's, and SSOP's) are also tracked and assigned through CMDS
Real time reporting allows for quick access and evaluation of employee training, competency, and overall compliance
Easily administered in-house, CMDS is accurate and reliable
The Competency Management and Development system (CMDS) provides a "line of sight" tool to measure, track, and prove competency, visible online, to all levels of supervisors. In existence for 17+ years, CMDS has established a competency library of over 4,000 competencies used to form job profiles that encapsulate job roles in the Oil and Gas sector.
Online web based system, available through any internet connection, and accessible 24/7
Competencies have been developed by industry Subject-Matter-Experts and training consultants
Competencies are linked to specific eLearning training resources (modules) that include the information (knowledge) the competency is measuring
Track and store other company specific documentation (Codes of Practice (COPs), Safe Operating Practices (SOPs) and Training Guides)
Track the status of worker "Time Sensitive Safety Certificates" such as First Aid, H2S, WHMIS etc., which may be required for the worker to work in the industry
The Competency Management and Development System (CMDS) is designed to provide a comprehensive competency based approach to training by measuring and tracking worker competence and by providing relevant specific training.
Certification is equivalent to attending a one year day time program at the college
Certification can be applied to the Petroleum Management Diploma
FPHO eLearning course prepares individuals to successfully challenge the ABSA Fired Process Heater Operator examination
FPHO eLearning course is approved by Alberta regulatory agencies (ABSA and Alberta Municipal Affairs)
FPHO eLearning course addresses the training requirements for fired heaters which are used extensively throughout Western Canada
The system's data (worker self-assessments and validations) is not only audited by industry Subject-Matter-Experts (SMEs) but also by college representatives, as workers are able to receive certification through Lakeland College in Alberta when they complete eligible profiles. CMDS also includes a Fired Process Heater Operator (FPHO) eLearning course which was developed to address the need to provide workers in industries using “fired heaters” with the knowledge to be able to safely operate and to recognize the hazards associated with operating fired heaters.
