Background

The AMCF Web Portal expands upon the original AMCF document delivered in February 2020 in an easy to use, accessible, and openly available format. This web portal also contains new features not included in the original document, including new templates and tools, improved AM Competency descriptions, new AM Functional Areas and AM Roles, and more! (Go to the AMCF Development Process section for full details.)

The development of this web portal will be an ongoing process as we look to add more features, resources and content to help you and your organization with your competency management activities. CNAM welcomes your feedback and suggestions on improving the AMCF Web Portal. Please provide your comments to competency@cnam.ca.

How to Use This Web Portal

This portal provides a more user-friendly way to engage with the AMCF content, allowing users more freedom to find what they need when they need it. It also allows for more opportunities to create customized strategies for individual AM Competency development and organizational AMCF implementation.
