ILEVE Competency Matrix

The Competency Matrix identifies the key skills, knowledge and expertise needed by all those involved in exhaust ventilation at work, including owners, installers, operators, maintainers, suppliers, manufacturers, inspectors, commissioners and sales people. It sets out what is needed in each of these roles to be competent.
The Competency Matrix can be downloaded by anyone who wants to understand what they need to know about local exhaust ventilation, and where they can go for appropriate training and guidance.
