A data base was prepared which describes the tasks to be performed by air pollution control agency personnel and the skills and knowledge they must have to perform those tasks effectively. Guidance concerning the use of the data base in making staffing decisions was also prepared. Agency personnel were interviewed and they described their jobs in detail. The data supplied from interviews with over 200 agency personnel in all areas of agency activity were submitted to task analysis. The purpose of the analysis was to identify representative tasks, describe them in detail, and identify required skills and knowledge. Groups of related tasks which could be performed by identifiable occupational categories were determined. A group of occupational categories which are capable of efficiently learning to perform sets of related tasks within agency function was developed. (Modified author abstract)
