Implemented Courses

Skilled Trades 1201

Skilled Trades 1201 provides students with an experiential introduction to six specific residential construction-based skilled trades. Exploration of carpentry, plumbing, electrical, drywall, plastering, painting and masonry will take place within a series of modules designed to emulate the real world as closely as possible with the lab environment. Providing career exploration of the trades while focusing on skills, education and other requirements to attaining certification in these trades, this course consists of three distinct units:

  • Unit 1 Apprenticeship and the Skilled Trades
  • Unit 2 Courses common to all trades
  • Unit 3 Experiencing the trades modularly.

Students will work with tools and equipment to complete tasks associated with internal aspects of residential construction.

Design and Fabrication 1202

In the production sector, design and fabrication are mutually dependent and interrelated activities. Design and Fabrication 1202 provides an introduction to design and the design process. Students will develop products using a variety of drawing tools and computer-aided design (CAD) software and then create their designs in the fabrication lab. Working in small and large groups students will experience the process of design, product formulation and fabrication common to industry. The hands-on portion of this course will constitute upwards of 60% of the class time and enable students to become proficient with a variety of hand, power and stationary power tools. The course consists of six units:

  • Unit I: Introduction to Design
  • Unit 2: Fabrication Techniques
  • Unit 3: Introduction to Shop Practices
  • Unit 4: Graphical Communications
  • Unit 5: Introduction to CAD/CAM
  • Unit 6: The Design Project

Authorized resources

  • Design and Fabrication 1202 Curriculum Guide
  • Solid Works 2007-2008 Computer Aided Design Software
  • Solid Works Curriculum Supplementary Disk
  • Solid Works Instructors Software

Residential Construction Technology 2201

A part of the exploring Skilled Trades concentration of courses, Residential Construction Technology 2201 provides opportunity for students to explore trades experientially. Focusing on residential construction, students will be involved in the finishing aspects of carpentry, electrical and metal work both inside and outside the house. The course involves design techniques, building codes and construction methods to plan and carry out construction activities.

The three main units are:
  • Unit 1: Introduction to Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship
  • Unit 2: Courses Common to all Construction Trades
  • Unit 3: Career Exploration ¿ Learning and Work

The methodology of instruction for this course, and the previous Skilled Trades 1201, is modular-based. Students will experience the trades by rotating through a series of set-piece modules within the Fabrication Lab. Instructors are expected to provide general demonstrations followed up by facilitation and mentoring.

Authorized Resources
  • Residential Construction Technology 2201 Curriculum Guide

The following resources were provided as part of the Skilled Trades 1201 course and are still applicable to the 2201 course:

  • Modern Carpentry
  • Carpentry & Building Construction
  • Electrical Wiring Residential
  • Basic Blueprint reading and sketching

(These resources are provided as classroom-based resource sets)

Design and Fabrication 2202

Design and Fabrication 2202 is a two credit course within the Engineering and Engineering Technology concentration of courses. Although there are no prerequisites for this course, it is expected that this course will be linked to Design and Fabrication 1202. The syllabus involves students working through the Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) sequence of advanced design and automation. Production will include tools for stock preparation and automatic routers.

The main units are:

  • Unit I: Engineering Design and Manufacture
  • Unit 2: CNC Programming Basics
  • Unit 3: Basic CNC Operations
  • Unit 4: Three-Dimensional Computer Aided Design
  • Unit 5: Computer Aided Manufacturing
  • Unit 6: The Design Project
  • Unit 7: Careers in CAD/CAM/CNC

The methodology of instruction for this course is also modularly based. In this instance students may be covering certain modules using computers while others will be engaged in hands-on activities.
