Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Career-Technical and Adult Education.
This document contains an introduction to the Ohio Integrated Technical and Academic Competency (ITAC) and Specialization ITAC; an overview of the drafting industry; a list acknowledging professionals who helped develop the competency list; and the comprehensive list of the professional or occupational competencies deemed essential for graduates to be able to perform proficiently when they graduate from an Ohio specialization workforce development program on drafting. The introduction explains the following: (1) critical academic, employability, and information technology skills have been integrated throughout the list to support the technical skills; (2) the competency profile can be used as the basis for curriculum development in Ohio's secondary, adult, and postsecondary programs; and (3) the specialization competency profile is organized so that it can be clustered or grouped in a modular approach. The overview of the drafting industry describes general duties, some specific tasks, employment opportunities, length of program, type of program (classroom instruction and/or work experience), and types of certificates and/or degrees. The competencies are grouped under broader skills that are, in turn, categorized under these 11 major topics: orientation to the drafting industry; safety in the drafting industry; basic drafting lab skills; geometric constructions; orthographic projections; pictorials; development drawings; dimensioning techniques; machine drawings; residential architecture; and electrical and electronic drawings.
