Automotive Body Repair Competencies.
D'Armond, Jack; And Others
Designed to provide a model curriculum and guidelines, this manual presents tasks that were identified by employers, employees, and teachers as important in a postsecondary auto body repair curriculum. The tasks are divided into ten major component areas of instruction: metalworking and fiberglass, painting, frame and suspension, glass and trim, estimating, electrical, cooling systems, accessories, servicing, and welding. For each task statement, the task analysis identifies the competency required, the criterion of satisfactory performance, the skills or process the employee must have or follow in performing the task, the knowledge or theory one must know to perform the task effectively, and attitudes and values needed to be successful in carrying out the task. Following the task analyses, a curriculum model provides a curriculum description, courses by quarters, and course descriptions with the suggested tasks to be taught in each course. (The task inventory is appended.) (LRA)
