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