Illinois Occupational Skill Standards: Landscape Technician Cluster.
Illinois Occupational Skill Standards and Credentialing Council, Carbondale.
This document of skill standards for the landscape technician cluster serves as a guide to workforce preparation program providers in defining content for their programs and to employers to establish the skills and standards necessary for job acquisition. These 19 occupational skill standards describe what people should know and be able to do in an occupational setting. Each skill standard contains at least these three areas: performance area (summary of work to be performed); skill standard with conditions of performance, work to be performed, and performance criteria; and performance elements and assessment criteria. These sections may also be included: performance area and assessment and credentialing approach. Introductory materials include the developmental process; assumptions for landscape technician cluster standards; table of contents; and performance skill levels. Standards include: market and promote landscape services and products; answer customer questions; plan, design, and price a landscape; install and maintain plants in the landscape; prune plants; and control weeds, pests, insects, diseases, moss, and plant disorders. Appendixes include a glossary; lists of committee and council members; and workplace skills. (YLB)
