Architecture, Construction, and Manufacturing

This is the foundation course for the Architecture and Construction career cluster. This course may be offered to students in Grades 9-12; however, it is not required for entering a specific pathway. Course content provides students with an overview of the Architecture and Construction career cluster, which contains three pathways- Construction, Design and Preconstruction, and Maintenance and Operations. Students who choose to complete a pathway in the Architecture and Construction cluster are engaged in challenging curricula and develop technical skills in the areas of safety, related mathematics, usage of hand and power tools, blueprint reading, basic rigging, and basic employability skills. 

Direct Current

This one-credit course is designed to provide students with the fundamental knowledge and skills for this area of the electrical industry. Emphasis is placed on job safety, sources, terminology and symbols, components of a basic circuit, electrical quantities and measurements, characteristics of resistors, Ohm’s law in direct current circuits, circuit construction, and troubleshooting. Upon successful completion of this course, students perform basic tasks related to the electrical industry.

Alternating Current

This one-credit course is designed to provide students with the fundamental knowledge and skills needed in the electrical industry. Emphasis is placed on job safety, terminology and symbols, magnetism, electrical quantities, Ohm’s law in alternating current circuits, and reactive circuits. Upon successful completion of this course, students are able to perform basic tasks related to the electrical industry.
