Competence Based Development

Users have the option to allocate competence areas to their tasks.

The 5 broad core-competence areas cover the technical and professional skills and knowledge required of a well rounded engineer. Users can determine areas where they are strong and areas which may need more development.

Plans & Reports

The OPD Tool is based on plans which are made up of individual tasks that provide complete flexibility. The more you put in, the more you get out of it!

Reports are filtered and created from the plans, allowing reports to be customised to user needs.

Fully Integrated with Professional Registration

The core competence areas in the OPD Tool have their basis in the Chartership Structure and are an international benchmark for Engineers.

Users continue to enjoy full access to all core features like plans and reports while applying for Chartership.
