Having issue retaining multi checked box value php

Am having trouble retaining the value for my multi checked box array. Have look on this site and have applied the answer to mine, but for some reason is not keeping the checked value. ** here is my PHP **

<?php

// start session
session_start();

// i user is not log in redirect back to index
if(!isset($_SESSION['user_type'])){
header('Location: index.php');
}

// include data based connection config
include_once('include/connection.php');

// incluude header ttile page
$title = "Edit User Profile";

// set user session variables
$userId = $_SESSION['user_id'];
//$userName = $_SESSION['user_name'];
$temp = $_SESSION['user_name'];

//$competency = "";
// if user update the data
if(isset($_POST['update'])){

// define post variable
$firstname = trim($_POST['firstname']);
$lastname = trim($_POST['lastname']);
$email = trim($_POST['email']);
$user_name = trim($_POST['user_name']);
$profession = trim($_POST['profession']);
$phone = trim($_POST['phone']);
$hobbies = trim($_POST['hobbies']);
$skills = trim($_POST['skills']);
$competency = implode(', ', $_POST['competency']);
$postcode = trim($_POST['postcode']);
$address = trim($_POST['address']);
$bio = trim($_POST['bio']);
$dob = trim($_POST['dob']);
$gender = trim($_POST['gender']);
$country = trim($_POST['country']);


// ************* UPDATE PROFILE INFORMATION ************************//
if(!($stmt = $con->prepare("UPDATE user SET firstname = ?, lastname = ?, skills = ?, competency = ?, profession = ?,
user_name = ?, phone = ?, address = ?, email = ?, bio = ?,
gender = ?, dob = ?, country = ? WHERE id = ?"))) {
echo "Prepare failed: (" . $con->errno . ")" . $con->error;
}
if(!$stmt->bind_param('ssssssissssssi', $firstname, $lastname, $skills, $competency, $profession,
$user_name, $phone, $address, $email, $bio,
$gender, $dob, $country, $userId)){
echo "Binding paramaters failed:(" . $stmt->errno . ")" . $stmt->error;
}
if(!$stmt->execute()){
echo "Execute failed: (" . $stmt->errno .")" . $stmt->error;
}


if($stmt) {
$_SESSION['main_notice'] = "Successfully Updated!";
header('Location: profile.php');
exit;

}else{
$_SESSION['main_notice'] = "Some error, try again";
header('Location: '.$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']);
}

$stmt->close();



}

$stmt = $con->prepare("SELECT firstname, lastname, skills, competency, user_name, avatar, profession, email, dob, gender, country, phone, bio, address, created_at FROM user WHERE id = ?");
$stmt->bind_param('s', $userId);
$stmt->execute();
$stmt->store_result();
if($stmt->num_rows == 0) {
echo 'No Data Found for this user';
}else {
$stmt->bind_result($firstname, $lastname, $skills, $competency, $user_name, $avatar, $profession, $email, $dob, $gender, $country, $phone, $bio, $address, $created_at);
$stmt->fetch();

$stmt->close();

}
?>


* And here is my HTML *

<div class="user-details">

<form name="update" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" id="UploadForm">

Here is my updated code hopefully there is something causing it.

Answer

Try this (updated) :

<?php $competency = explode(', ', $competency); ?>
<tr>
    <td>        
            <label >Competency:</label>
            <input type="checkbox" value="RRT" name="competency[]" <?php if(is_array($competency) && in_array('RRT', $competency)) echo 'checked="checked"'; ?>>RRT<br>
            <input type="checkbox" value="ESD" name="competency[]" <?php if(is_array($competency) && in_array('ESD', $competency)) echo 'checked="checked"'; ?>>ESD<br>
            <input type="checkbox" value="SDT" name="competency[]" <?php if(is_array($competency) && in_array('SDT', $competency)) echo 'checked="checked"'; ?>>SDT<br>
            <input type="checkbox" value="CAR" name="competency[]" <?php if(is_array($competency) && in_array('CAR', $competency)) echo 'checked="checked"'; ?>>CAR <br>
            <input type="checkbox" value="DH" name="competency[]" <?php if(is_array($competency) && in_array('DH', $competency)) echo 'checked="checked"'; ?>>DH<br>
            <input type="checkbox" value="MEDS" name="competency[]" <?php if(is_array($competency) && in_array('MEDS', $competency)) echo 'checked="checked"'; ?>>MEDS <br>
     </td>
</tr>

Also make sur that your form method is post:

<form methos="POST" ...
