It is the intent of this course to prepare students for NCCER certification examinations, entry level employment, and/or postsecondary programs. Students electing to take a second year will have the opportunity to specialize, participate in work based learning experiences, possible apprenticeships, Skills USA competitions with scholarship possibilities, dual enrollment opportunities, and other activities that will prepare students for the electrical industry. Personal transportation is required for the second year program.
Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Advanced CAD
This class offers a hands-on approach to the field of Computer Aided Design (CAD). It is a great class for students who like drawing, creating, and designing. Both mechanical and architectural drafting/CAD concepts will be covered, while students create both 2D and 3D objects using advanced computer software such as Autodesk AutoCAD, Inventor, and Revit. Students who successfully complete CAD may apply to take Advanced CAD during their senior year.
