Power Equipment Technology. Ohio's Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
Developed through a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) process involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives in Ohio, this document is a comprehensive and verified employer competency profile for power equipment technology occupations. The list contains units (with and without subunits), competencies, and competency builders that identify the skills needed to enter these occupations. The occupational, academic, and employability skills for this occupation or occupational area are included. Within the outline are three levels of items: core, advancing, and futuring. Core items identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for entry-level employment. These items are required to be taught and will be the basis for questions on the state vocational competency tests. Advancing items identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to advance in the occupation; futuring items identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to enter and remain in a given occupation 3 to 4 years from now. This profile contains 24 units: professional behavior; hand tools; shop equipment; fasteners; welding, soldering, and heat-treating equipment; manufacturer's parts, service, and software materials; disassembly, inspection, and reassembly of two-cycle and four-cycle engines; ignition systems; fuel systems; governor systems; lubrication systems; cooling systems; lighting, accessory, and charging systems; engine tune-up; removing and stalling engines; power takeoff accessories; motion drive systems; frame, suspension, and steering systems; tires, wheels, and brakes; servicing multicylinder engines; troubleshooting; equipment maintenance and storage; customer relations; and employability skills.
