I think what we need to clarify the definition of competence in the training sector. What level of competence are we gauging? Does knowledge and theory with minimal practical experience deem you competent in your chosen course?
Are we overstating the obvious that competence comes with experience over time (12 -18 months), with repetition. What we deem competent in the training world is theory based competence. I feel we tend to over dramatise the term competence by overstating its definition.
