Automotive 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 automotive 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, intended outcomes, and level of instruction. The guide then lists the following 10 tasks with subtasks (competencies) for automotive technology: shop safety, work ethics and responsibilities, and employability skills; basic knowledge of automotive technicians; electrical and electronic skills for diagnosing malfunctions of electrical/electronic components; engine performance service; engine repair service; automatic transmission/transaxle service; servicing manual drive trains and axles; steering, suspension, and wheel service; automotive brake service; and cooling, air conditioning, and heating service.
