Electricity Theory I (Tier 1)
#1ELT01 | 180 hours
This course covers the two modules required by the Electricity board to complete the first 150 hours of tier 1. Included in Module I is jobsite and electrical safety, introduction to the NEC and Process, DC/Alarm Theory and Basic Math. Module II covers Electrical Bonding and Grounding, Low Voltage Systems and Controls, Fire Warning and Security Systems, Design and Testing (NFPA 72).
In addition, students will learn about the fundamental circuits and how to correctly apply them. They will develop an understanding of the terminology used in the field. A focus is the development and interpretation of wiring diagrams, and understanding of the stock required and the development of the stock list for each project.
#1ELT02 | 15 hours
Students will be oriented to safe practices in the shop and with all equipment at tools. At the completion of this course students will obtain the OSHA 10 certification.
Electricity Applications I
#1ELT08 | 200 hours
The project-based course provides students with the opportunity to apply theory to practice. Through this course, students will develop the skills required to complete the basic installation of electrical power in a residence. Students will actively wire receptacles, switches, and lights, adhering to the required of the National Electrical Code (NEC).
#1ELT08 | 15 hours
This course is designed to provide students with job readiness skills to meet the challenges in today’s workforce. It enables students to enter the workforce with an understanding of what is needed and expected from them in their job search. This course will also address some common job readiness skills such as cover letter preparation, resume preparation, and more.
Electrical Theory II (Tier 1)
#2DAT10 | 45 hours
Expanded Functions with Laboratory is a performance based course which covers the additional delegable dental duties not covered in Chairside and Prosthetics Laboratories. Dental assisting skills presented in this section include fixed prosthetics, oral surgery instrumentation, dental sealant application, coronal polishing of primary and adult dentition, the administration of a variety of topical fluoride treatments, application of desensitizing agents, fabrication bleaching trays and procedure, fabrication and insertion/removal of provisional crowns and bridges, removal of temporary cement, placement and carving of various restorative materials, and the monitoring and recording of vital signs are practiced. The composition and properties of the dental materials used will be taught at an in-depth level. General lab assignments are part of this course. Prerequisite: Fundamentals of Dental Assisting Lab, Prosthetics Lab, and Chairside Lab I
Electricity Applications II
#2ELT07 | 175 hours
This second semester project based course builds on previous learning. Students will learn the basics of installing electrical systems in commercial applications.
