New Changes to the Continuing Competence Scheme:
CIWM and WAMITAB have announced changes to the Continuing Competence Scheme which will take effect from 1st March 2014.
- A "Rolling Programme" will replace the current two year fixed competency period.
- Certificates will be issued with a 2 year date stamp i.e. the certificate of competence will expire 2 years after the date was passed and must be renewed by that date.
- The current 2 year period remains in force ie all existing Technical Competent Managers must have passed the test or qualified between 1st March 2012 and February 2014.
- For those completing the test in the period up to February 2014 their certificate will have an expiry date of 29th of February 2016.
What this means for holders of TCMs(Technically Competent Managers)
All candidates must have either validated their TCM by completing the test before February 2014 or otherwise qualified by this date. From then onwards they will need to ensure that they renew their competence before the expiry date stamped on their certificate.

All managers providing operator competence, including those previously assessed by the Environment Agency and deemed to be a technically competent manager (TCM), must refresh their knowledge every two years by passing a continuing competence test. Mayer holds day training courses designed specifically to prepare candidates for the continuing competence test.
Metals Recycling, ELV and WEEE continuing competence course was developed on behalf of the BMRA.
We knew we were going to have to raise the bar across the group with respect to operator competence. We entrusted Mayer to lead our in-house delivery training to ensure everyone was up to scratch. Mayer didn’t let us down and all our guys passed with flying colours. Now we can focus on the business, safe in the knowledge we are fully compliant.

It is a steady old subject, but was put across in a positive manner. Excellent delivery.

The course delivered by Mayer was expertly honed with reference to our industry. This precision enabled a lot of relevant information to be covered in just one day. We would normally expect to see this amount of relevant information covered in a two-day course.
