When should VOCs be undertaken?
Q: We are creating a new training program and need some clarification on when a verification of competency (VOC) should be completed. The program will involve an induction and on-the-job training. We are hoping to have VOCs created for tractor operation, side-by-side utilities, horse-riding and cattle-handling. Is there an agreed industry timeframe for when VOCs should be completed? Must it be before undertaking the work?
