Applied Welding 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 applied welding 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 10 task areas with subtasks (competencies) for applied welding technology: employability skills; general safety skills; basic trade skills; oxyacetylene welding; oxy-fuel cutting; shielded metal arc welding; gas tungsten arc welding; gas metal arc and flux cored arc welding; carbon arc cutting; and plasma arc cutting.
