Following the separation of practitioner and management subgroups, a new classification standard for each subgroup was developed with a view to ensuring that each of the following elements are considered when evaluating and classifying each LP subgroup´s job description:
- critical thinking and analysis,
- communication and interaction,
- physical and visual effort, and finally
- work environment.
The classification standard allocates certain point ratings to various levels within the elements described above for the purposes of ranking jobs that fall in one of the 5 subgroups of LPs (excluding LP-00).
