Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Avionics Maintenance Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Avionics Maintenance Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Critical Thinking. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Avionics Maintenance Technology majors need more than the average amount of Installation, Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, Equipment Selection, Troubleshooting, Operation and Control, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Programming, Technology Design, Science, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, Operations Analysis, Mathematics, Systems Evaluation, Systems Analysis, Critical Thinking, Complex Problem Solving, Time Management, Persuasion, Coordination, Negotiation, Active Listening, Management of Personnel Resources, Service Orientation, Judgment and Decision Making, Social Perceptiveness, Reading Comprehension, Monitoring, Speaking, Active Learning, Writing, Learning Strategies, and Instructing.
These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Avionics Maintenance Technology majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Installation is very distinctive for majors, but the Critical Thinking, Reading Comprehension, Active Listening, Quality Control Analysis, Operation Monitoring, Complex Problem Solving, Science, Speaking, Judgment and Decision Making, Troubleshooting, Time Management, Writing, Monitoring, Equipment Maintenance, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Mathematics, Active Learning, Repairing, Social Perceptiveness, Operation and Control, Learning Strategies, Coordination, Instructing, Operations Analysis, Persuasion, Service Orientation, Negotiation, Management of Personnel Resources, Equipment Selection, Installation, Programming, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, and Technology Design are the three most important skills for people in the field.
