    Can i say : ...out of my professional competence

    Please go through the following scenario and let me know the following statement is correct..


    Incident : The company requested it's one of employes to perform some tasks which are not matching with hi/hers professional or academic competency. ex: A medical doctor is asked to fix hardware issue of a Completer system.

    so Can he say? "......the above tasks are out of my professional competence and I donít possess adequate expertise on them" ? is it odd ? or what is the correct way of expressing this ?

    Re: Can i say : ...out of my professional competence

    How about outside my area of expertise/my professional field?

    Yes, and it's also wrong to start a sentence with a lower case letter and to use three question marks.

    is it correct now ?


    the above tasks are outside my area of professional expertise and I don’t possess adequate competence on them.

    Re: Can i say : ...out of my professional competence

    Here are the most important rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Capitalise all proper nouns (English, Hindi, Shakespeare, Microsoft etc).
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Read those rules, then look at what you wrote in post #5 and see if you can spot (and correct) the errors.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
