Course No. Course Title Credits
ECM 121 Fundamentals of Electricity 3
This course covers general safety principles, basic construction guidelines, laws governing electricity, basic hand tool usage, print reading, electrical safety, circuit construction and operation. This course will also begin to outline use and interpretation of the National Electrical Code (NEC).
ECM 122 Introduction to Residential Wiring 3
This course will provide information on conductor ratings, wiring styles, grounding, and practical experience in basic residential electrical wiring. DC circuit theory will be introduced in this course.
ECM 123 Principles & Applied Practices of Residential Wiring 3
This course is a continuation of Introduction to Residential Wiring with advanced practical experience in lighting branch circuits and special purpose circuits. DC circuit theory will continue to be discussed in this course.
ECM 124 Advanced Residential Circuit Installation 3
This course will teach advanced residential wiring. In addition to practical application, examination of skills, troubleshooting, and the maintenance and repair of electrical circuits, the course will cover NEC requirements and installation of residential electrical services. AC circuit theory will be introduced in this course.
ECM 125 Service Installation & Troubleshooting 3
This course is a continuation of electrical residential wiring. The focus of the practical experience and problem solving skills are in panel board selection, electric service, and overcurrent protection such as fuses and circuit breakers, as well as low voltage lighting and cooling systems. AC circuit theory will continued to be discussed in this course.
ECM 126 Commercial Wiring 3
This course provides information and practical experience in installation of electrical systems for commercial buildings, reading architectural drawings, and branch circuit feeders and installation, as well as appliance and special systems found in commercial buildings. Students receive practical experience in conduit bending. Three phase circuits and inductive loads will be covered in this course.
ECM 221 Industrial Motor Control 3
This course will introduce the basic principles and practices of motor control pertaining to magnetism, AC/DC contactors and motor starters, time delay and control devices, motor types and motor theory.
ECM 222 Advanced Motor Control Circuits 3
This course is a continuation of theory and practice in reversing motor circuits, power distribution systems, solid-state electronic control devices, electro-mechanical relays, reduced voltage and accelerating/decelerating methods. Also covered is an introduction to programmable logic controller (PLC) wiring and programming.
ECM 224 Industrial Maintenance I 3
This course covers the theory and practice of industrial mechanics including calculations, rigging, lifting, ladders, hydraulics, lubrication, flexible belt drive systems, vibration and alignment.
ECM 225 Industrial Maintenance II 3
This course covers the service and repair principles and practices for industrial electrical systems, industrial electronic devices, programmable controllers, welding, boilers, HVAC, mechanical and pneumatic and fluid power systems.
ECM 206 Applied Practice and Special Topics 4
This course provides the opportunity to integrate all theory and practical experiences learned in previous modules. It is intended to be student project based which will prepare students for an entry-level position. In addition, special topics such as high voltage will be introduced to further enhance their problem-solving and practical skills.
ECM 207 Internship 4
This work experience is designed to expose the student to an industrial, commercial, or clinical environment. Students are placed into a contracted facility after completing 50 credit hours, having a 2.00 GPA, and meeting all other program prerequisites and academic requirements prior to their final spring semester. Students are expected to adhere to all policies and regulations associated with the facility. Students will work on projects selected to expose the student to “live” work situations, while building upon the student’s knowledge, skill and attitude as an entry-level technician and will be used to grade the student’s performance for the course. The schedule for meeting the requirement of this experience will be arranged between the student, faculty member and internship site. (200 Hours) (No compensation)
ECM 208 Cooperative Educational Experience 4
This work experience is designed to expose the student to an industrial, commercial, or clinical environment. Students are placed into a contracted facility after completing 50 credit hours, having a 2.00 GPA, and meeting all other program prerequisites and academic requirements prior to their final spring semester. Students are expected to adhere to all policies and regulations associated with the facility. Students will work on projects selected to expose the student to “live” work situations, while building upon the student’s knowledge, skill and attitude as an entry level technician and will be used to grade the student’s performance for the course. (200 Hours)   (Compensation)
AMT 221 Programmable Logic Controllers 4
This course begins with an introduction to programmable logic controllers (PLCs), their uses and configurations. The course continues with an examination of the different types of hardware devices that are used in conjunction with PLCs. This course will cover the programming of PLCs from the simple relay logic functions to advanced functions used in PLCs. An emphasis is placed on programming projects throughout the course.
CCM 220 Residential Construction Prints 1
This course is designed to introduce the students to the views, callouts, materials and methods that are prevalent in residential construction. The areas of focus include the creation of residential prints, sketching of details, materials and finishes used in residential construction, and related construction methods. The course is intended to give the students an understanding of residential construction prints.
CCM 227 Commercial Construction Prints 1
This course is designed to introduce the students to the views, callouts, materials and methods that are commonly used in commercial construction. The areas of focus include the reading and interpretation of commercial prints, sketching of details, materials used in commercial construction, and the design and material differences as compared to residential construction. The course is intended to give the students an understanding of commercial construction prints.
CCM 228 Construction Safety 1
This course is an industry-designed course covering safety topics specific to the construction industry. Students who successfully complete the course will earn an OSHA 10 hour card. The course is taught by a certified OSHA 10 trainer.
