Welding. Ohio's Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This Ohio Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP), derived from a modified Developing a Curriculum (DACUM) process, is a comprehensive and verified employer competency list for a welding program. It contains units (with or without subunits), competencies, and competency builders that identify the occupational, academic, and employability skills needed to enter this occupational area. Within the outline are three levels of items: core, advancing, and futuring. Core items are essential to entry-level employment and are required to be taught and will be the basis for questions on the state vocational competency tests. Advancing items are needed to advance in a given occupation. Futuring items are needed to enter and remain in a given occupation 3 to 4 years from now. This OCAP contains 10 units: (1) safety and housekeeping; (2) materials science, inspection, testing; (3) blueprints; (4) oxyfuel welding; (5) shielded metal arc welding; (6) thermal cutting; (7) gas metal arc welding; (8) gas tungsten arc welding; (9) flux core arc welding; and (10) employability skills.
