Auctioneering Training Certificate Program 93-1001. Final Report.
Clark, Charles H.
A project was conducted to prepare a catalog of duties and tasks, performance objectives and guides, and instructional materials that would enable schools to develop instructional programs designed to prepare persons to enter the career of auctioneering. An occupational survey of auctioneers was conducted; a writing team of auctioneers prepared the performance objectives; a draft copy of the "Auctioneer's Catalog" was prepared, field reviewed, evaluated and finalized; and a statistical summary of the occupational survey was developed. These two publications form the bulk of this document. The summary of occupational tasks showed that the auctioneers who perform the widest range of tasks are those who are selfemployed fulltime and who are associated with an auction house. It also showed that a wide range of duties are performed and should be incorporated in the catalog. The catalog contains tasks, performance objectives, performance guides, goals, and equipment needed by auctioneers. The 65 tasks covered in the catalog are organized into the following categories: obtaining sales merchandise for auctions; appraisal of items; maintaining a business office; advertising; pre-auction procedures; auction procedures; and post-auction procedures. A bibliography is also included in the catalog. (KC)
