Classroom Scenario Competency Assessments

Tidal Training is now able to bridge the gap between directed learning and competency-based practice.  As an addition to the course you select, we can deliver an addon session of simulated classroom-based scenarios to enhance your manual dexterity and build up your confidence as you start your competency journey. This practical session will supplement the directed training you have already had and prepare you better for competency-based assessment in the workplace.  We will provide each delegate with a competency workbook which they can take back to their place of work following the course.
