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