Electrical A

Residential Prints & Standards

Students learn to interpret electrical codes, regulations and residential construction drawings. These skills and knowledge will enable the student to plan and layout the electrical installation of a residential building. Students learn to search for and find the required information to complete a material list necessary for the installation of a residential service and associated branch circuits.

Introduction to Renewable Energy

Students explore alternative energy sources with emphasis on solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind turbines as they relate to the electrical construction industry. Students examine the basic economic model that underlies the need for alternative sources of energy generation. A road map for future development of the smart grid is explored by students. Students follow lab instructions related to the design and installation of solar PV plants. Other topics explored by students include performance modelling, performance tracking and troubleshooting in solar and wind turbine operating and maintenance programs. Students explore the basics of the electrical grid and how it is morphing to reflect present day technical, social, economic, cultural, legal, and environmental concerns etc. Students also experience the basic fundamentals of installing plumbing fixtures.

Electrical Trade Safety

In this course students are taught how to stay safe in a potentially dangerous environment. Students learn about the common causes of workplace accidents, how to foresee and prevent them from happening. Personal and workplace safety includes: Lifts, ladders, harnesses and explosive tools.

Early Childhood Education

Interpersonal Communication & Early Childhood Educator

Students will develop their ability to communicate professionally within the field of Early Childhood Education. Through reflection students examine topics related to interpersonal communication. Students explore basic interpersonal communication skills and concepts related to the self as the communicator, the components and complexities of communication, perceptual barriers, active listening, assertiveness as they relate to interacting effectively with others.

Public Safety

Police Career Preparation

Students examine the opportunities, duties, responsibilities and demands of a career in policing. They consider the competencies needed to succeed including selection requirements and processes. Students explore the development, structure, services and career opportunities provided by a wide range of police organizations. Students assess their interests, values and abilities to identify possible career paths. They investigate structured and extra-curricular learning opportunities to maximize their personal development. Students develop a personal learning plan to prepare for the highly structured and competitive police hiring processes.

Youth in Conflict with The Law
