Enhancing today's workforce through tailored performance solutions.

For over 12 years we have been serving the needs of our business and industry clients as The Whitener Group, a subsidiary of NOCTI (the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute). The Whitener Group now has a new name, Nocti Business Solutions (NBS). Nocti Business Solutions, a company dedicated to standards and assessment development is presenting a new face to the world.

As NBS we bring a new focus, a new energy, updated resources, and an increased desire to help business and industry and related associations increase their productivity while staying grounded in technical education and training development. We're talking about an expected, validated set of norms that govern the way technicians accomplish work in your business or association.

Those familiar with performance standards know there are many models available. One such model is the Department of Labor's Competency Modeling System. Graphically, the DOL system looks a bit like a wedding cake, with five or six layers of skills that individuals must acquire. These skills range from basic education skills to soft skills to advanced technical skills. Nocti Business Solutions (NBS) can help no matter what level of skill your company or association is trying to measure and/or certify. We have worked to establish and measure international workplace readiness skills, as well as technical skills, for all industry clusters including alternative energy.

These performance standards, the technical assessments that go with them, and the resulting score reports can provide the tools your organization needs for a quality improvement cycle. They can also provide individuals within your organization with the opportunity to advance and improve their individual skill sets, thus improving overall productivity.

We are skilled at legally defensible, psychometrically sound customized test development. If we can help in any way with your assessment needs, please don't hesitate to contact us. NBS strives to be an important partner in helping prepare the workforce of the future. Contact us at or 800-334-6283 and let us show you what we can do.
