The content is deliberately generic (i.e. not specific to any one specialist function) to provide employers, engineers and those developing training courses with an industry-recognised standard against which to map their training and development. It identifies where those skills, knowledge and behaviour areas are fundamental to this occupation as well as including others that should be considered in order to provide a broader context of requirements for those working in this occupation at different levels and functions.
