This Occupational Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP) for masonry occupations contains a competency list verified by expert workers and developed through a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives from Ohio. This OCAP identifies the occupational, academic, and employability skills (competencies) needed to enter masonry occupations. The competencies are clustered into 12 units that cover the following topics: safety; masonry materials; materials preparation; laying brick and block; jointing; blueprint reading, record keeping, and estimating; job site preparation; masonry construction; reinforced concrete masonry; special masonry applications; chimney and fireplace construction; and basic welding and cutting. In addition, employability competencies are grouped into 12 units: career development; decision making and problem solving; work ethic; job-seeking skills; job retention and career advancement skills; technology in the workplace; lifelong learning; economic education; balancing work and family; citizenship in the workplace; leadership; and entrepreneurship. The units detail the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (competency builders) needed to perform each competency. Within the competency list are two levels of items, core items essential for entry-level employment, and items needed to advance in masonry. The OCAP guide also contains an academic job profile based on the Work Keys system that identifies the level of applied academic skills that students must master to qualify for and be successful in their occupations; a total list of academic competencies in communication, mathematics, and science that all students should master; and a specific list of academic competencies needed for masonry occupations .
