Engineering and Industrial Fields. Revised Summary Report: Technical Employment in Northeast Florida.
Baker, William E.; And Others
The document is one of five summary reports, all part of a Pre-Technical Curriculum Planning Project for secondary students who aspire to technical employment or post secondary technical education. This report represents the results of an assessment of the northeast Florida area's technical occupations in engineering and industrial fields. A three-phase approach was utilized: (1) the identification of four broad career clusters in electromechanical, building and construction, climate control, and transportation fields; (2) development of a survey instrument; and (3) a review of data collected. The following occupations are analyzed according to tasks and corresponding skills/knowledges: electronics technicians, electronics maintenance, sales, radio and television repair, electromechanical technicians, computer maintenance, air conditioning service, heating and power plant technician, sheet metal work, automotive repair, service station business management, drafting, surveying, electrical trades and mechanical trades, such as plumbing and industrial sheet metal work. Employment statistics and projections, conclusions and recommendations complete the document. (MW)
