A Study to Determine Competencies Needed by Employees Entering Agricultural Mechanics Occupations.
Bishop, Douglas D.; And Others
Part of an ongoing study to provide information for curriculum development and the institution of agricultural education programs to meet manpower demands in Montana, Phase II concerns itself with the judgments, skills, and attitudes needed to qualify for available jobs in agri-business and agricultural production. Each report is a composite of competency interviews with employers in a particular job cluster and a compilation, evaluation, and analysis of the data. In this report, requirements for entry-level employment in each of 12 job classifications in the cluster of agricultural mechanics occupations are identified and rated on a scale of relative importance, to assist prospective employees in assessing their qualifications, to aid counselors in guidance, and to provide program planners with a basis for development of curriculum materials utilizing performance objectives and for defensible training programs.
