POWER MECHANICS 20G | POMR2G – 1 CREDIT
This course will survey the basic operating principles of tools and routine service procedures of the automobile and small engines. Students will complete theoretical as well as practical work on engine assembly, basic ignition, braking, charging, fuel delivery, tires, electrical, lubrication, cooling and starting systems.
POWER MECHANICS 30G | POMR3G – 1 CREDIT
This course offers practical as well as theoretical assignments in electronic ignition, standard transmissions, differentials, brake, electrical, drive trains, lubrication and cooling systems. Students will be servicing lubrication, cooling, brake and starting/charging systems. They will perform minor tune-ups and routine maintenance service on live vehicles. They will be taught how to use service and reference manuals. Prerequisite: Power Mechanics 20G
POWER MECHANICS 40G | POMR4G – 1 CREDIT
This course is designed on a more independent study basis, and is useful for students who want to service the more complicated automotive systems on their own vehicles / or planning a career in automotive, aircraft or heavy equipment mechanics trades.
Topics to be covered in theory and practical work are: electronic ignition, power trains, fuel delivery, starting/charging, electrical, steering, suspension, exhaust and emission control systems.
Students will also learn the use of advanced automotive testing equipment such as: engine analyzer, battery load tester, starting/charging analyzer and emission control testing gauges. Prerequisite: Power Mechanics 30G
APPLIED AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY - APPRENTICESHIP PREP. 40S | APTR4S – 1 CREDIT
This course is an outcome based advanced automotive technology practicum with a secondary focus on school-to-work transition. Students will receive both the theory and practical application on the following topics. A.B.S. braking systems, advanced fuel injection technology, welding technology and fabrication, advanced automotive electronics. Advanced steering and suspension systems. There will be an apprenticeship practicum with employers that is optional for students.
Prerequisite: Students must have a complete POMR3G to enroll in APTR4S Apprenticeship Prep. Students may be enrolled in POMR4G as well as APTR4S Apprenticeship Prep. Primary consideration will be given to students who have complete POMR4G.
