Ready-to-Go and Customized Competency Profiles

Define Your Own Competency Profiles

Compass is completely customizable, allowing you to build an unlimited number of competency assessments for every instrument, test, or platform in your organization. Competency assessments can include:

  • Online quizzes and courses (provided by MediaLab or customized by you)
  • Online POCT assessment checklists
  • Links to policies or procedures in Document Control
  • Uploaded Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and PDF files (to read or to fill out and re-upload)
  • Documentation of any other activities, including direct observations, review of test results, quality control records, instrument maintenance, and proficiency testing.

You can reuse activities across competency profiles and assessments. Customize the activities required for initial assessment, six-month assessment, and annual assessment, to reflect changing requirements. Update your competency assessments every year without losing records of prior completions.
