Precision Metal Fabrication. Florida Vocational Program Guide.
University of South Florida, Tampa. Dept. of Adult and Vocational Education.
This guide identifies considerations in the organization, operation, and evaluation of secondary and postsecondary vocational education programs. It contains both a vocational program guide and Career Merit Achievement Plan (Career MAP) for precision metal fabrication. The guide contains the following sections: occupational description; program content (curriculum framework and student performance standards); program implementation (student admission criteria, cooperative education, and student organization participation); instructional resources (student reference materials, service manuals, and periodicals); facility design recommendations and safety, maintenance, and liability; suggested equipment list; and professional development (technical updating and teacher standards and related professional organizations and support services). The 13 intended outcomes establish students' proficiency in the following: basic metal fabrication skills; read plans and drawings; measuring and layout operations; describe metals and their properties; operate metalworking machines; metal fabrication operations; gas welding and cutting operations; electric metal-bonding operations; assembly operation; apply geometric form and position control; organize and plan work; practice employability skills; and entrepreneurship. The Career MAP displays student performance standards and documents the level of achievement on the standards for each of the 13 student outcomes. (NLA)
