Analyser technician competency documents released

The Analyzer Technician Opportunities Project (ATOP) has announced the completion of the Analyzer Technician Competency Model, a formal document defining the skills and competencies needed for analyser technicians working in the field.

ATOP worked with industry experts and representatives from the Analysis Division of the International Society for Automation (ISA) in the USA to build on the industry-based Automation Competency Model developed by the Automation Federation and the U.S. Department of Labor to develop the Analyzer Technician Competency Model.

Several data collection and review meetings, including face-to-face working sessions and a national validation, where conducted to complete this occupation-specific model.

An occupational competency model is a clear description of what a person needs to know and be able to do-the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to perform well in the prescribed occupation.

Competency models are developed with national collaboration and industry validation. The Analyzer Technician Competency Model defines the five industry-based tiers, including personal effectiveness competencies, academic competencies, workplace competencies, industry-wide competencies, and process analyser technical competencies.
