Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Alternative Fuel Vehicle Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Repairing. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Alternative Fuel Vehicle Technology majors need more than the average amount of Installation, Repairing, Equipment Maintenance, Equipment Selection, Troubleshooting, Operation and Control, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Technology Design, Service Orientation, Systems Evaluation, Systems Analysis, Programming, Time Management, Critical Thinking, Complex Problem Solving, Judgment and Decision Making, Coordination, Active Learning, Monitoring, Management of Financial Resources, Active Listening, Management of Material Resources, Persuasion, Management of Personnel Resources, Social Perceptiveness, Learning Strategies, Instructing, Speaking, Negotiation, Operations Analysis, Reading Comprehension, Writing, Science, and Mathematics.

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 Alternative Fuel Vehicle 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 Repairing, Troubleshooting, Operation Monitoring, Equipment Maintenance, Operation and Control, Quality Control Analysis, Critical Thinking, Active Listening, Judgment and Decision Making, Complex Problem Solving, Equipment Selection, Active Learning, Monitoring, Service Orientation, Time Management, Speaking, Systems Evaluation, Reading Comprehension, Coordination, Systems Analysis, Writing, Social Perceptiveness, Persuasion, Installation, Instructing, Learning Strategies, Management of Personnel Resources, Negotiation, Mathematics, Science, Operations Analysis, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, Technology Design, and Programming are the three most important skills for people in the field.
