You have to develop your own procedure... NAS410, Paragraph 8.6, "The employer shall develop and implement a documented annual process to verify technical proficiency for each
method during the certification cycle for all levels of personnel processing or inspecting hardware."

The best for this can be Rolls Royce specification, in this spec you can find a format to perform the annual maintennance or the performance annual review were you need to check: vision test, previous records filled by the inspector, continuity in NDT, working as Level 2 in the method and a practical examination.

May be this helps.

Regards
