Competencies for employability also are listed in 12 units: career development, decision making and problem solving, work ethic, job-seeking skills, job retention and career advancement skills, technology in the workplace, lifelong learning, economic education, balancing work and family, citizenship in the workplace, leadership, and entrepreneurship. The OCAP guide also includes an academic job profile for commercial photography; 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.
