Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Vehicle Maintenance & Repair Technologies field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Vehicle Maintenance & Repair Technologies majors need many skills, but most especially Repairing. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Vehicle Maintenance & Repair Technologies majors need more than the average amount of Installation, Repairing, and Equipment Maintenance.

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 Vehicle Maintenance & Repair Technologies 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, and Operation Monitoring are the three most important skills for people in the field.
