Using National Occupational Standards
Occupational standards for supply chain roles can be used by:
Employers, in developing job descriptions, competency profiles and job-performance tools, planning employee education and training programs, and establishing succession plans.
Employees, in identifying skills and knowledge needed for particular occupations, assessing their abilities and training needs, and identifying clear career paths.
Learning providers, in designing training and educational programs that meet industry needs.
Developed in partnership with CSA Standards and with significant input from supply chain stakeholders, the standards include: a position description; required qualifications, in terms of education, training and related work experience; a list of the tasks performed by employees in the role; tools and technologies used on the job; a catalogue of the knowledge, skills and personal attributes needed to succeed in the position; and, an essential-skills profile.
