Viscar Industrial Capacity limited is spearheading a drive towards local certification in specific skills required by the industry. Certification provides independent verification of a certain level of expertise in a specific area. This confirmation is often, but not always, provided by some form of external review, education, assessment, or audit. Basically, it means you have completed the steps required to receive a designation. Some of the existing international certifications include PMP, CFOT,FAT etc. Whereas international certifications are credible, most have tended to be abnormally expensive to acquire yet some do not address local problems.
It’s envisaged that this initiative will contribute a lot in enabling Kenyans acquire relevant skills required by the industry based on industry occupational standards. Employers, in turn, will be assured of competent workers able to drive their businesses towards high performance and profitability. As part of the efforts to ensure that we offer the industry what it wants, we are carrying out a survey among specific sector stakeholders. By sparing 10 minutes to respond to this questionnaire, you will have played a critical role in ensuring that in future you are guaranteed of the competency of staff you employ in specific areas.
IMPORTANCE OF CERTIFICATION
- Improved staff efficiencies: Certified staff are more productive and perform better.
- Improved availability and risk mitigation: Employees with the right skills can identify problems and provide solutions with ease.
- Superior business agility: Upskilling staff with professional certifications makes an organization more agile and serves to improve performance.
- Improved productivity and reduced cost: Employees with certifications tend to stay with organizations longer, reducing hiring costs and minimizing disruption to the business.
