What is the SPE Competency Management tool?

The SPE Competency Management Tool (CMT) is a free online service to members designed to help individuals manage their professional development throughout their careers. The CMT provides an easy way to assess one’s current capabilities against specific competencies modeled for key E&P job positions. Once the assessment is complete, a learning plan addressing identified competency gaps can be generated offering suggested training and technical resources to help fill those gaps.

SPE has collaborated with IHRDC, a respected provider of training and competency development for the oil and gas industry, to help design and offer this service.
