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