Autobody Technology. Technical Committee Report.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise. Div. of Vocational Education.
This Technical Committee Report prepared by industry representatives in Idaho lists the skills currently necessary for an employee in that state to obtain a job in autobody technology, retain a job once hired, and advance in that occupational field. (Task lists are grouped according to duty areas generally used in industry settings and are used as the basis for modules in the statewide curriculum guide development process and for generating student profiles.) The first section of the guide is the task profile, which provides the Idaho code number for the occupation and outlines major concepts/content, laboratory activities, teaching considerations, and intended outcomes. The guide then lists the following 18 tasks with subtasks (competencies) for autobody technology: Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) and employability skills; safety; tools and equipment; identification of automotive bodies and frames; management and inventory of disassembled parts; cutting and welding; basic panel repair; panel replacement; body and frame alignment; steering and suspension; electrical systems; trim, accessories, and hardware; thermoplastic and fiberglass repair; glass replacement; painting and refinishing; estimating; detailing and preparation for delivery; and miscellaneous techniques and services.
