The DACUM Model is an engaging and systematic way to:
- Perform occupational competency analyses
- Develop competency-based training
- Administer competency-based human resource programs.
Coined DACUM for Developing A CurriculUM, the model was created in Canada in the 60s. Originally designed and implemented as a total system for organizing, delivering instruction and managing the learning process, DACUM has evolved into a model that aims to enhance occupational or organizational competence .
The foundation stone of the model is the DACUM Analysis. Universally recognized for its accuracy, thoroughness and cost effectiveness, the DACUM Analysis has become a standard in many organizations, across all sectors.
DACUM’s main users are employers, training providers and governments.
For Training Providers
Training providers rely on DACUM to develop competency-based training programs and to ensure that their training offerings meet the demands of the various sectors of the economy.
Competency-based training, or CBT, is a flexible and learner-centered method which aims at enabling individuals to acquire the competencies that are required to exercise a given occupation or function.
