This document contains 27 units to consider for use in a tech prep competency profile for the occupation of electronics technician. All the units listed will not necessarily apply to every situation or tech prep consortium, nor will all the competencies within each unit be appropriate. Several units appear within each specific occupation and would need to only appear once if the user is compiling a cluster of occupations. The first three units are divided into subunits. These units (communications literacy, mathematics literacy, and science literacy) list the competencies for each subunit. The remaining units are divided into competencies, followed by a listing of competency builders. These units are as follows: technology literacy, employability skills, professionalism, teamwork, quality assurance, technical recording and reporting, computer literacy, workplace safety, basic electronics, fundamentals of electronics technology, troubleshooting and repair, microcomputer electronics technology, instrumentation control technology, communications electronics technology, industrial electricity, electrical test and measurement equipment, drafting technology, computer-assisted drafting and design (CADD) fundamentals, intermediate CADD, equipment installation, equipment maintenance, electromechanical technology, hydraulics and pneumatics, and programmable logic controllers.
