Safety Instruction: Electrical and occupational safety will be presented as part of the laboratory instruction. Safe and proper methods of using tools, meters, and equipment in the lab will be presented. Safety instruction as it pertains to the electrical occupation will be presented. Safety films, lectures and demonstrations will be used. Safety instruction will be presented throughout the course.
The courses listed above will be taught in sequential blocks of instruction. Successful completion of a course is required before the student can progress in the program. If the student fails any math, theory, or lab course, then that course must be repeated and a passing grade obtained before the student can advance in the program. The student must exit the program and make up their deficiency through Technical General Education or other appropriate methods. The student will then be allowed to repeat the course at the next available program opening.
Based on your keyboarding skills, you may be required to take a 1 credit Keyboarding class in order to meet the competencies of the program.
