“CABEM has everything we were looking for from an LMS. On top of that, the competency management features have boosted our efficiency and work quality.”
Telemedicine Director, Behavioral Health Group
The CABEM Competency Manager is a workforce development system that provides an at-a-glance view of an organization’s competency framework for every location, department, role, and individual across the enterprise. CABEM recognizes that competency is attained by methods not typically embraced by the functionality available within an LMS, such as online training and tests. People become competent through not only formal but experiential learning.
The Competency Management platform aggregates multiple completion methods for learning and development, such as witnessing, approvals, and traditional LMS techniques. It eliminates the need for spreadsheets and filing cabinets with document libraries to retain user records and information for current and past years. The platform identifies learning/development pathways to help organizations comply with quality management standards with document tracking, archived training materials, version control, and more, allowing organizations to pass audits easily. It provides the ability to manage risk, automate certifications, and publish reports on actionable data, improving efficiency overall across the enterprise.
User Profiles and Dashboard
Easily accessible and built to manage workflows and priorities.
Assign tasks, requirements, training, or competencies according to the needs of your organization. You can configure the system to support the unique needs of your organization.
Set the requirement and the configurable options for managing the Activity.
Once an Activity is set up with all of the necessary requirements – the Completion Method must be assigned. Use one completion method, or many, and sequence them as needed.
Competency Manager Confirmation Methods
One of the key differentiators of the Competency Platform is the variety of learning completion methods available within the system that can stand alone or be aggregated as workflows to satisfy competency requirements and expectations. Examples include User/Manager/SME approvals, performance assessments, proficiency scales, mentor oversight, automated expiration and renewal of certifications, event attendance, and proof through required upload of documentation. The built in LMS includes test taking, video playback, instructor led training and guided learning. Employees avoid missing key deadlines with automated notifications. Users are alerted to new and overdue competencies, certification renewals, and approaching requirements and trainings.
Ensure oversight across the organization by requiring approver signoff as a simple standalone requirement or as a final task in a multi-step process, such as achievement of certification.
Grow employee confidence and awareness on internal policies and external regulations by requiring user sign-off.
Capture experiential learning on-site through Witnessing. Subject matter experts can quickly and easily administer on-the-job training through custom assessments. All the information needed is recorded in the system via multiple formats like video upload. Move beyond checking boxes to make an impact on the behavior, culture and values across your organization.
With the built-in LMS, you can build tests to quiz your learners at every point of the journey, leveraging a wide variety of question formats. Set passing percentages and define the number of attempts your learners have to retake quizzes. Administer required or optional standalone training courses or require them as steps to achieve competency or certification.
Track event attendance at instructor-led training courses, community outreach, or instructional webinars.
Require document upload to maintain proper employee training, certification, and compliance records. Quickly verify whether an individual or project team has all the documentation required for their work and provide evidence of certification to auditors, vendors, customers, and suppliers.
Leverage the competency manager’s built-in survey features to learn and adapt your learning and competency program accordingly.
Develop relevant learning paths through employee development plans that drive performance, compliance, and career goals with current and target proficiency scales, including the Dreyfus Model.
Mentoring development plans are customizable learning paths that allow mentors to guide mentees through suggested or on-the-fly activities as their knowledge and proficiency progresses. Use knowledge retention activities to help your workforce apply what they learn to take their expertise to the next level.
Activity Grids & Reporting
CABEM’s Competency Manager includes powerful reporting capabilities out of the box. The interactive Activity Grid matrix is a skills inventory that makes it easy to zero in on user progress toward completion. The Activity Grid allows Managers, Mentors, and System Administrators to view the details of a user’s progress for all assignments, as well as the ability to act through approval signoffs, assessments, and multiple other actions right from within the same screen. Discriminating filters provide the most efficient way of accessing important business intelligence in real-time.
With built-in reporting the Gap Analysis, Activity Metrics, Training metrics, Risk Analysis, or Role Compliance reports will give you the feedback you need to make sound business decisions or pass your upcoming audit.
Our LMS or SCORM – Or Yours
CABEM’s Competency Manager makes learning accessible to the entire workforce through its many options for implementing blended learning. With SCORM compatibility and a built in LMS, the Competency Manager provides a central framework for all your content, no matter the source. Centralized learning materials allow your organization to stay organized and provide consistency, two essential elements of increasing learner engagement. Easily import existing training programs, build your own tests and assessments, track attendance, administer guided learning. Create a learning ecosystem by integrating with your existing LMS or pull in content from third party content providers.
With the Competency Manager there’s no single right way to offer learning options to your workforce!
