Our Trainer Michelle Edwards travelled to Asturias March 2016 to deliver the OPITO Competence Assessor training to three Instructors at the Spanish Maritime Safety Agency.  Michelle was warmly hosted by the centre’s Quality Manager Margarita Lobera Mancha, who had – along with another colleague – completed OPITO Assessor and Internal Verifier training with ITB in October 2015.  The three delegates successfully built their evidence portfolios with the support of Assessors at ITB and obtained the OPITO Competence Assessor awards. 


The OPITO Competence Assessor award is designed for any organisation where assessments are required as part of a competence management system. The training consists of a two day learning programme which equips the delegates with the skills and knowledge to carry out competence assessments in their workplace. The training will be followed by practical exercises allowing delegates to rehearse their skills, knowledge and understanding of the Competence Assessor role.


ITB Competence Assurance provides high quality training and support to help delegates achieve the key qualifications they need in the workplace - no matter where in the world they are based. ITB strives to inspire clients to build a competent workforce through training and competency support services, offering a one stop shop for Competence Management Systems.
