Competency Model

About the Database

The database contains resources that list, describe, or are based on competencies, such as apprenticeship work process schedules, assessment instruments, curricula, and skill standards. These resources have been assembled to provide background information for developing and customizing competency models, career lattices, stackable credentials, and other workforce development products. Each database entry provides a description of the resource and a link to its location on the Web. To facilitate searching, the resources are categorized by 'type' (e.g., career lattice, curriculum model) and are linked to industry clusters that are economically important, projected to have long-term growth, or are being transformed by technology and innovation. If the resource contains competencies related to an occupation, the resource is also categorized by an O*NET Occupation Family.
