SCANS Occupational Profile Handbook for Electrical Engineering Technicians.
Lovelace, Bill E.; Teddlie, Jessie
This handbook provides a description of the national and Texas initiatives for building a world-class competitive work force using education and training programs that are driven by industry via the National Skills Standards, SCANS (the Secretary of Labor's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills), and the Texas Skill Standards and Certification Projects. It was developed as part of the Education 2000 initiative to make the U.S. work force competitive in a world economy by upgrading basic and technical skills. The handbook describes the procedures for the development and the potential uses of a SCANS Occupational Profile. The handbook also presents other occupational profiles for electrical engineering technicians that will be of value in restructuring and enhancing the technical curriculum through the integration or inclusion of the SCANS skills and the National Skill Standards into existing technical curricula. Each of the occupational profiles contains task analysis sheets that include the following: occupation, duty area, competency, technology performance skills (tasks), tools and equipment needed, communication skills, mathematics skills, reasoning skills, and SCANS resources, information, and skills required.
