NEW COURSE OFFERED FOR 2nd SEMESTER
School Based and Dual Credit Trades course. There are 2 Parts to this program for 4-16 credits
Part 1: “Tool Time” (with Tim): Arouse your spirit of inventiveness and develop confidence and competence as you become an expert at using a wide array of hand and power tools as well as stationary equipment in a fun and safe setting. Tool timid? You’ll get over your inhibitions as you experience success using all sorts of new tools. Bit of a tool expert? Take it to the next level and enhance your skills by creating and building cool artifacts with your new found expertise.
Students who successfully complete this course will not only have a wealth of new skills and knowledge, but they will earn 4 credits for a “dual credit” college level course for the online learning component as well as a 4-credit Tech Ed course. The dual credit college course also serves as a prerequisite to Camosun College’s NEW Marine Industry TASk Program (running this summer) as well as meeting the common core tool competencies for Camosun College’s Plumbing and Pipe Trades Foundation program and the Electrical Foundation program. Upgrade your skills and qualifications as well as acquiring valuable life skills by enrolling in Tool Time with Tech Ed teacher, Tim Lockhart in second semester.
