Abstract:The ICT penetration in the life of the average person, digitisation of things and the easy access to information from many and different sources gradually shifted the emphasis in the learning process from acquiring knowledge toward building skills and competencies. In the course of the training in hard skills, it becomes more and more important that the acquired knowledge be applied rationally in the solving of sudden problems.
The main issues that are encountered in the learning process are the abundance of information sources, difficulties in selecting appropriate learning literature, and defocusing learners from the main purpose of learning. A good solution is a frequent control over the knowledge imposed from the lecturer, who check the acquired knowledge, analysing the results and guide the learners to their specific problem through a suitable solution and appropriate literature.
The result of entering of the model in the learning process has a positive influence on demonstrated student knowledge in the form of more and better-solved tasks during the learning process and a greater number of faithful answers during the exam. This gives reason to believe that the model can affect the same success in other hard skills disciplines.
Keywords: Building competencies, a system for testing of knowledge, learning process, education, hard skills.
