WMO Competency Frameworks


The WMO Technical Commissions have developed a series of competency frameworks in several areas of service delivery. These frameworks help WMO Members design their services for effective delivery, assist in staffing decisions, guide the performance assessment of staff members, and offer recommended learning outcomes to use in planning training programmes. 

WMO-No. 1209, Compendium of WMO Competency Frameworks, provides easy access to the latest published versions of each of the competency frameworks. 

WMO-No. 1205, Guide to Competency, provides guidance on developing, implementing and/or maintaining competency-based training and assessment programmes based upon the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) competency frameworks established in the Technical Regulations, Volume I (WMO-No.49).
