You must have knowledge of documentation according to current legislation. As a person, you are calm, confident and secure in your role and have a good ability to act in a professional manner in all situations that arise. In the business, physical activities occur together with users and you must therefore have a basic physical ability and an interest in planning and carrying out activities.
