Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Vocational Education.
The curriculum guide for air conditioning/refrigeration is one of five guides written and field tested in a project to develop statewide articulated competency-based curricula in selected vocational education programs. Two separate curricula, one for the vocational-technical level and one for the associate degree level, are presented. The six study units at the vocational-technical level are: Refrigeration Tools and Materials, Theory of Refrigeration and Component Parts, Basic Electricity, Room Air Conditioners, Central Air-Conditioning Units, and Commercial Refrigeration. For each of the units, the terminal objective is stated, and the task analyses, performance objectives, and criterion-referenced measures are listed. The associate degree program is oriented towards specialized training and education in air-conditioning systems layout and design, as well as equipment selection, cost estimation, and optimization. Following a brief description of the program, a job description, task analyses, terminal objective, performance objectives and criterion-referenced measures, and a criterion test item are detailed for each of seven job titles.
