Competency based training
Competency based training (CBT) places emphasis on what a person can do in the workplace as a result of completing a training program.
CBT programs are often comprised of modules broken into segments called learning outcomes. These modules are based on standards set by industry, and assessment is designed to ensure each student has achieved all module outcomes.
Progress within a CBT program is not based on time. When a student completes the requirements in a module, they can move to the next module. Therefore they may be able to complete a program of study quickly.
However some CBT programs will only be available within fixed timeframes and some have on the job and outside the job components.
