Commercial Truck/Equipment Technician. Occupational Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This Occupational Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP) for commercial truck and equipment technician is an employer-verified competency list that evolved from a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) job analysis process involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives throughout Ohio. The task list of the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) makes up units 1-8 of the OCAP, covering the 8 truck areas that may be certified: (1) gasoline engines; (2) diesel engines; (3) drive train; (4) suspension and steering; (5) brakes; (6) electrical and electronic systems; (7) heating and air conditioning; and (8) preventive maintenance inspection. Unit 9 contains additional competencies important to the success of entry-level auto collision technicians in Ohio. Competencies for employability also are listed. Each OCAP identifies the occupational, academic, and employability skills (competencies), clustered into broader subunits and units, and coded by priorities needed to enter a given occupation or occupational area. The OCAP guide also includes an academic job profile showing levels of proficiency in academic areas needed for commercial truck and equipment technicians; a total list of academic competencies as well as a list of the competencies needed for these occupations; and a list of the members of the verification panels.
