University of South Florida, Tampa. Dept. of Adult and Vocational Education.
The program guide for residential heat and air conditioning courses in Florida identifies primary considerations for the organization, operation, and evaluation of a vocational education program. Following an occupational description for the job title for air-conditioning installer-servicer, window unit, and its Dictionary of Occupational Titles code, the guide contains six sections providing: (1) a description of program content, including a curriculum framework, student performance standards, major concepts, and laboratory activities; (2) program implementation information, such as teacher characteristics, student admission criteria, cooperation education program description, and student organizations; (3) 12 resources listed by performance standards; (4) information on facility design; (5) a list of suggested equipment related to student performance standards; and (6) information on teacher professional development resources and organizations. The attached Career Merit Achievement Plan (Career MAP) for residential heat and air conditioning charts the competencies required for entry into the field of residential heat and air conditioning. It was developed to display the student performance standards required by the local education agencies and to document the level of achievement on student performance standards that individual students demonstrate.
