National Occupational Competency Testing Institute Bulletin of Information for Candidates.
National Occupational Competency Testing Inst., Albany, NY.
This bulletin describes the National Occupational Competency Testing Program, which is designed to give experienced craftsmen objective evidence of their competency in order (1) to obtain academic credit toward a degree, (2) to gain certification as an industrial teacher, or (3) to enroll in an industrial teacher education program. Information is supplied on registration, examination results, types of tests (the examination in each field consists of a written test for technical and factual knowledge and a performance test for manipulative skills), and test preparation. Sample questions are included as illustrations of the multiple-choice written test. A description of the examination's scope is provided for each of twenty-six trades. Besides summarizing the subjects covered on each test, this section indicates the percentage of the test devoted to a particular topic. It also lists any special materials that the candidate is expected to bring to the test site. The twenty-six trades covered are as follow: air conditioning and refrigeration, airframe and power plant, architectural drafting, auto body repair, auto mechanic, building trades maintenance, cabinet making and millwork, carpentry, civil technology, computer technology, cosmetology, diesel engine repair, electrical installation, electronics communications, industrial electrician, industrial electronics, machine drafting, machine trades, masonry, mechanical technology, plumbing, printing, quantity food preparation, sheet metal, small engine repair, and welding.
