What type of training does the DACUM International Training Center provide?

The DACUM International Training Center at The Ohio State University’s Center on Education and Training for Employment (CETE) provides comprehensive job and task analysis training to participants either in Columbus, OH or at your organization.

DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) is a quick, low-cost method of analyzing jobs and occupations that has been used worldwide for more than 40 years. A job analysis determines the duties and tasks performed for a given job. During a job analysis, subject matter experts working in the identified job team up with a facilitator to list all of the major duties of the job and the tasks that make up each duty. When a job analysis is complete, you can use the information  to write job descriptions, determine the skill and compensation levels for the position, and create training materials.

SCID (Systematic Curriculum and Instructional Development) is designed to produce relevant, high-quality, competency-based instructional materials based on the job analysis developed using the DACUM process. SCID is complementary to the DACUM job analysis materials and follows the ADDIE framework. It answers the question, “How can you most effectively teach what needs to be taught?” You can use SCID to develop curriculum and instructional materials needed to train tomorrow’s workforce. It works for schools, colleges, companies, and government agencies.
