Auto Mechanics. Ohio's Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This comprehensive and verified employer competency list was developed from a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) process involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives from Ohio. This competency list contains 11 units (with or without subunits), competencies, and competency builders that identify the occupational, academic, and employability skills needed to enter the repair business as an auto mechanic. Within the outline are three levels of items: core (required, the basis for state vocational competency tests); advancing (needed to advance in an occupation); and futuring (needed to enter and remain in a given occupation 3 to 4 years from now). The units cover the following: (1) safety and housekeeping; (2) engine repair; (3) automatic transmission/transaxle; (4) manual drive train and axles; (5) suspension and steering; (6) brakes; (7) electrical systems; (8) heating and air conditioning; (9) engine performance; (10) nonmechanical body trim and upholstery; and (11) employability skills.
