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