Hepburn, Larry; Shin, Masako
This document, one of eight in a multi-cultural competency-based vocational/technical curricula series, is on maintenance mechanics. This program is designed to run 40 weeks and cover 5 instructional areas: basic electricity (14 weeks); maintenance and repair of heating (4 weeks); maintenance and repair of air conditioning (12 weeks); maintenance plumbing (3 weeks); and maintenance carpentry (7 weeks). A duty-task index lists competencies in each instructional area that the student should be able to perform at the end of the program. For example, in the residential air conditioning section, a student should be able to (1) add oil to a hermetic system; (2) add refrigerant to a hermetic system; and (3) install a filter-drier. In section 1, each instructional task area contains a list of performance objectives, evaluation criterion, performance guide, and a list of tasks to be covered. In section 2, the introduction and duty-task index is repeated in English, Spanish, and Laotian. In section 3, a listing of technical terms concerning maintenance mechanics are listed in English, Spanish, and Laotian. (CT)
