Competency Index for Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Programs in Missouri. A Crosswalk of Selected Instructional Materials against Missouri's Competency Profile.
Missouri Univ., Columbia. Instructional Materials Lab.
This index was developed to help air conditioning and refrigeration instructors in Missouri use existing instructional materials and keep track of student progress on the VAMS system. The list was compiled by a committee of instructors who selected appropriate references and identified areas that pertained to Missouri competencies. The index lists competencies in these 11 areas: safety; basic refrigeration; tubing and connections; basic electricity; controls; domestic refrigeration; commercial refrigeration; residential/light commercial cooling/heating; diagnosing and problem solving; fundamentals of air conditioning; and customer sales and relations. Each competency is then listed in a matrix that identifies where it appears in one or more of the 15 texts selected to be used in the course. (KC)
