Skill examination is the assessment of a persons application of knowledge in a real world or simulated setting. By observing a persons actions we can see how their personal attributes affect the application on knowledge in a skilful manner.
16 Personal attributes measure a persons attitude to their surroundings, work and relationships. Often a persons attributes can mean the difference between a valued service, a safe work environment, a caring manner, and a request to return or continue & complete a job task.
