    Plural of Competence

    I have to deal with the topic "competence management". Is the plural of competence competences or competencies?

    Are competence and competency synonyms? According to the thesaurus, they are, but are they commonly used interchangeably?

    Thanks
    Seeking

    "Competency" is a rare word. It's not commonly used at all.
