Suggested Competency Models

NIH has created suggested competency models for a variety of occupational series. Employees and supervisors have the flexibility to decide which competencies are most necessary for success in a position. It is recommended that a custom model is created using a combination of competencies from the applicable sections of the NIH Competency Dictionary.

Suggested Competency Models for Job Series

If there is not a suggested model for an occupational series, it is recommended that the appropriate competencies are selected from the NIH Competency Dictionary.
