Competency/Performance-Based Training Systems

Competency-based training is a systematic approach aimed at improving the teaching/learning process. By definition, competency-based training refers to a system whereby tasks or competencies are identified to define the content of training. Competency-based training may also be known as "performance-based training," "criterion-referenced training," "mastery learning," or "instructional systems design." Regardless of the label, the training process is essentially the same. Following is a list of essential concepts that must be understood and implemented for competency-based training to be successful.
