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 printing and graphic arts 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 20 task areas with subtasks (competencies) for printing and graphic arts technology: employability skills; introduction to the printing industry; paper; clerical administrative support operations; mechanical and creative support operations; pre-press operations; offset press operations; finishing and binding operations; reproduction process operations; estimating operations; graphic design operations; typographical operations; copy preparation operations; line photographic operations; graphic arts halftone operations; color reproduction operations; stripping operations; proofing and platemaking operations; offset operations; and finishing operations.
