The Engineers Development Framework is one of the projects of Jadarat Vocational Academy. It is a Competence Assurance Management System (CAMS) based development framework (DFW) that ensures the competence of everyone of your engineers. It is a development and growth roadmap for your workforce that tells you what everyone needs to be competent and to make the jump to his next career level, and tells you how these needed skills can be acquired step by step.
