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 industrial maintenance 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 28 tasks with subtasks (competencies) for industrial maintenance technology: employability skills; general safety precautions; blueprints; shop skills; hand tools; portable power tools; stationary shop equipment; troubleshooting; gas welding and cutting; arc welding and cutting; electricity and electronics; elements of mechanics; lubricants; drive components; bearings; pump maintenance and repair; piping systems; hydraulic systems maintenance and repair; troubleshooting hydraulic systems; air compressors; pneumatic systems; industrial pollution control systems; rigging; equipment installation; machine shop turning operations; machine shop milling operations; machine shop job analysis; and maintenance management systems.
