This document contains 23 units to consider for use in a tech prep competency profile for the occupation of tool and die 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, drafting technology, computer-assisted drafting and design (CADD) fundamentals, equipment maintenance, precision machining, computerized numerical control, basic materials science, welding basics, basic diemaking, basic moldmaking, metal stamping dies, press technology, and sheet metal fabrication.
