Electrical Installation and Maintenance: A Competency-Based Curriculum Manual.
Ball, Peggy, Ed.; And Others
Described is a competency-based community college curriculum for programs in electrical installation and maintenance. The initial curriculum development project involved identifying career opportunities, determining the skills (tasks) required for each job, and analyzing each task for necessary competencies and performance criteria. Project participants then developed a curriculum model and guidelines. Presented in this document are the resulting task analyses and curriculum guide. In the task analysis section, 17 tasks are delineated by subtasks, competencies and evaluation criteria. The curriculum guide section provides a model for a four-quarter sequence designed to prepare individuals to enter employment with electrical contracting firms as advanced-level apprentices with the basic skills and knowledge of electrical installations.
