Job Analysis is the foundation of assessment and classification, and incorporating competency models extends the usefulness of the job analysis data to performance management and employee development. In four half-day sessions, you will learn a simple process for identifying the right competencies, and collecting and analyzing job analytic data.

Part I - Competency Modeling

Through a combination of lecture, discussion, and individual and group exercises, participants will gain an understanding of the terms and application of "Competency" and "Competency Modeling" and how it complements Job Analysis. This course will address issues that competency modeling might resolve, design parameters, key design features, rating and sorting duties and competencies, and how to apply competencies in examination design. Participants will receive an electronic copy of the WRIPAC Competency Framework. 

Part II - Job Analysis 

This interactive two-session workshop will focus on the WRIPAC Job Analysis Method. This comprehensive method is designed to identify the essential job tasks and associated knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) and Competencies required to satisfactorily perform those tasks. The WRIPAC Job Analysis Method is flexible enough to be used in any jurisdiction and for a variety of classifications. It is compliant with the 1978 Federal Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures and 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. This workshop includes group discussions and practical exercises.
