Illinois Occupational Skill Standards: Welding Cluster.
Illinois Occupational Skill Standards and Credentialing Council, Carbondale.
These Illinois skill standards for the welding cluster are intended to serve as a guide to workforce preparation program providers as they define content for their programs and to employers as they establish the skills and standards necessary for job acquisition. They could also serve as a mechanism for communication among education, business, industry, and labor. An introduction provides a sample format, occupational earnings and employment information, and performance skill levels, a table that cross references performance skills to these occupations: production welder; fitter or fabricator welder; maintenance welder; construction or code welder; and leadman or supervisor. Each skill standard contains these components: performance area; coding that identifies the state, fiscal year in which the standard was endorsed, subcouncil abbreviation, cluster abbreviation, and standard number; conditions of performance; work to be performed; performance criteria; performance elements; and performance assessment criteria, including product and process. The 89 skill standards are categorized into these 11 areas: analysis (5 standards); setup (11); material preparation (7); shielded metal arc welding (17); gas metal arc welding (10); flux core arc welding (7); submerged arc welding (2); gas tungsten arc welding (14); surface welding (1); quality assurance and documentation (8); and automated and mechanized welding (7).
