What are NOC Skill Types and Skill Levels?
The first digit of the NOC 2006 code identifies the Skill Type of an occupation. For example, Health Occupations start with the digit 3. Management Occupations, which are found across all Skill Types, from 1 through 9, start with the digit 0.
The NOC 2006 consists of four broad skill levels identified as A through D. These levels correspond to the kind and/or amount of training or education required for entering an occupation. Management occupations are not subject to the skill level criteria as entry into management is often dependant on previous occupational experience or expertise and other factors.
Occupations in Skill Types 1 through to 9 are classified under Skill Levels A, B, C or D. Management occupations, which span all Skill Types, are found above the Skill Level categorization in the NOC Matrix 2006.
Skill Level is referenced by the second digit of the NOC 2006 code. The second numeral in the NOC 2006 code for an occupation identifies the Skill Level as follows:
1 corresponds to Skill Level A
2 or 3 correspond to Skill Level B
4 or 5 correspond to Skill Level C
6 corresponds to Skill Level D
Skill Level A represents occupations usually requiring university education. Skill Level B refers to occupations usually requiring college education or apprenticeship training. Skill Level C occupations generally require completion of secondary school and some job-specific training or completion of courses directly related to the work. Skill Level D occupations usually require on-the-job training, short demonstration sessions or instruction that takes place in the work environment.
