Competency-based Training

Effective date: December 1, 2019

DWD-DET defines "competency-based training" as a program that requires its students to demonstrate they have successfully acquired a set of skills or knowledge base prior to completing the program. Compare to a "time-based" training program that results in successful completion if the students participate in a certain number of instructional hours.

DWD-DET uses 29 CFR § 29.5 on registered apprenticeships to help define the term "competency-based training."
