What may be required to document competency if based on previous work history.

For example, a position has a job description defining the key responsibilities and core competencies. An employee has performed this job for several years and his/her manager is intimately familiar with their quality and work history. Can the manager sign-off a simple declaration statement, as apposed to say completing a detailed evaluation checklist based on work samples/observations/etc.
Does previous work history actually show competency? I don't think so... In fact, I'll disagree with John that "grandfathering" isn't "OK" it's very risky.

Competency is defined as "the demonstrated ability..." What is being found by management when they actually ask their 30+ years experienced people is that they are NOT competent with certain tasks. I'd suggest that doing demonstration of skills and knowledge is going to highlight a train wreck BEFORE it happens...

Awesome answer, that what I was looking for. Yes, on critical jobs and/or where safety is a concerns, I think periodic training/evaluations are necessary.
