How does a company suspend or restore a project, site or zone based competency?

Occasionally, it may be necessary to suspend a cardholder’s project-based competency.  If the competency is a requirement of a job role, in the event the competency is suspended, the job role will become invalid. 


In addition, if that competency is assigned as a requirement (for entry to a Network, project or site), suspending the competency would prohibit the cardholder from accessing the network, project or site having this requirement.
