Verification of Competency (VOC) Courses

Verification of Competency (VOC)

Civil Trans Training can provide Verification of Competency to organisations and employers who require it. 


What is a Verification of Competency or VOC?

A VOC is a method of determining the skill level of a person against a defined competency standard in order to evaluate the person’s ability to carry out the activity or works their employer requires them to do.

A VOC helps ensure that employers and organisations in a variety of civil industries are meeting Work Health and Safety requirements (WHS) and have competent skilled staff working with and for them. 

Why do we need a VOC?

    • To assist in the maintenance of work health and safety requirements
    • To manage the currency of your employees
    • Can be utilised as part of pre-employment checks
    •  As part of ongoing site requirements to maintain competency and safety standards.


How does it work?

    • Our trainers will come to your business location or you bring your equipment to us (eg. crane truck/tow truck). 
    • We review the organisation policy and procedures to establish the benchmark
    • We review work documents and logbooks to determine the level of competency required
    • Perform on the job observation and checks for each staff member who requires verification. 
    • Prepare an assessment report for each staff member for your records.
    • Supply of VOC (email PDF)


Before you engage a training organisation, consider the following to help identify the service you require:

1. Does your organisation require an updated Statement of Attainment or a VOC?


2. Which version of the unit(s) do your employees currently hold?
    If a unit has changed, is a “refresher course” required with the VOC to get the most up to date unit of competency?

3. What if your employee is not competent?
Part of the solution is assessment of any additional/gap training required before further assessment is conducted.

If your employee is not competent we will advise on ways to fill the gap.
