The Canadian Classification and Dictionary of Occupations (CCDO)-A National Classification and Counseling Instrument.
This document is a review of Canada's attempt to develop a standardized, multipurpose occupational classification system suited to national requirements. The main objective of Volume 1 the CCDO is to provide an instrument for use in manpower research and analysis, for statistical survey purposes, census taking, and for operational activities such as placement, counseling, training, and immigration. The basic principle used in the development of categories is the "kind of work performed." There are three distinct categories, including: (1) 23 major groups which describe broad fields of work; (2) 81 minor groups which are further subdivisions of related fields of work; and (3) 498 unit groups which describe related groups of occupations. CCDO Volume 2, "Occupational Qualification Requirements," provides a useful instrument for vocational and career counseling, as well as placement, by stressing the common requirements for broad groups or clusters of similar occupations. Each chapter in Volume 2 introduces the reader to the variety of work performed in the occupations comprising the chapter, including: (1) a summary of what the workers do; (2) a qualifications profile summarizing requirements for the group of occupations; (3) a narrative section which describes the data presented in the qualification profiles; and (4) a section on advancement and transfer possibilities within the group of occupations.
