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; (3) the specialization competency profile is organized so that it can be clustered or grouped in a modular approach. The overview of the electronics profession 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 nine major topics: electronics orientation; basic electronic theory; basic electronic skills; basic troubleshooting and repair; troubleshoot and repair common consumer and business office equipment; computer applications and servicing; electro-optic technology applications and servicing; professionalism in electronics; and academic skills in electronics.
