This document contains 33 units to consider for use in a tech prep competency profile for the occupation of mechanical 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, supervision, troubleshooting and repair, industrial electricity, drafting technology, computer-assisted drafting and design (CADD) fundamentals, intermediate CADD, equipment installation, equipment maintenance, mechanical power transmission, electromechanical technology, precision machining, fundamentals of machine anatomy, hydraulics and pneumatics, industrial manufacturing technology, programmable logic controllers, computerized numerical control, industrial engineering basics, basic materials science, welding basics, metal stamping dies, press technology, and sheet metal fabrication.
