Program Policy: Coursework and delivery design.
Math, lab theory, and technical support courses are interrelated and must be taken concurrently during each session. Quantity as well as quality of completed work is a basic requirement for Electromechanical Drafting. Math and theory courses are applied in the drafting lab assignments. Because of this design, students will not be permitted to take technical nor technical support courses independent of each other.
The courses listed above will be taught in sequential blocks of instruction. If the student fails a theory or lab course, then that course must be repeated and a passing grade obtained before the student can advance in the program. If the student fails a math class, they must exit the program and make up their math deficiency. Then at the next available opening the student will be allowed to reenter the program, repeat the math course and progress in the program.
Students who demonstrate adequate academic skill to succeed in the occupational content courses of the program will be given an "S" grade for EMDR 100, 101 and will not be required to attend the initial semester.
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.
