Agriculture Products Processing. Occupational Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This Occupational Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP) contains a competency list verified by expert workers and developed through a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives from Ohio. This OCAP identifies the occupational, academic, and employability skills (competencies) needed to enter agriculture products processing occupations. These 23 units are included: general safety precautions; sanitation; meat processing industry; livestock purchasing; slaughtering; carcass grading; wholesale cutting; retail beef cutting; retail pork cutting; retail veal and beef-calf cutting; retail lamb, mutton, and goat cutting; miscellaneous meat merchandising; dairy and other pasteurized products; eggs; processed foods; fish and fish products; fruits and vegetables; grains; preservation of agricultural products; customer service; marketing; product handling; and business management . The units detail the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (competency builders) needed to perform each competency. Within the competency list are two levels of items, core items essential for entry-level employment, and items needed to advance in agriculture products processing occupations. The OCAP guide also contains an academic job profile based on the Work Keys system that identifies the level of applied academic skills that students must master to qualify for and be successful in their occupations; a total list of academic competencies in communication, mathematics, and science that all students should master; and a specific list of academic competencies for agriculture products processing occupations.
