Each STK consists of a manual, covering several modules and self-assessment questionnaires that will help in pinpointing the modules where skills would benefit from further enhancement. The STK also contains final assessment questionnaires that will help the employee understand whether he has progressed to a stage where he is competent in the modules identified as critical by the training needs self-assessment.
