General Requirements for Certificates

Effective fall Semester 2003, several academic policy changes were implemented to ensure that students are adequately prepared to meet business and industry standards. All Undeclared or newly Declared Students enrolled in regularly scheduled postsecondary courses must be enrolled in or must have completed developmental coursework for Math and English or have successfully placed into post-secondary Math and English (or equivalent).
 
Students must fulfill the English general education requirement by the time they have enrolled in 12 credits of classes. This means that students may take only nine (9) credits before they must begin meeting the general education requirements. All declared students in Certificate programs will be required to successfully complete minimum general education course requirements. For more information, refer to the Admissions Information, General Education Policy section of this catalog.
 
A. General Education Requirements
Students must demonstrate proficiency in reading, writing, understanding and speaking English as indicated by one of the following:
Test out of the English Placement Test (or equivalent), or
Satisfactory completion of EN096 or EN097 courses
and
Test out of the Math Placement Test (or equivalent), or
Satisfactory completion of MA096 or MA098 courses
 
B. Technical Requirements
Total Technical Requirements vary by program.
 
C. Related General Education & Technical Requirements
Total related General Ed/Technical Requirements vary by program.
 
Minimum Total Credits Required for a Certificate           30
* No course may be counted for both Technical Major and Science/Technology General Education requirements.
** Placement testing is not mandatory for admission to the College. Completion of placement testing, however, is required for enrollment into English and mathematics courses. Therefore, students who plan to enroll full-time in a program should take the placement test to be eligible for a full load of courses.



Upon successful completion of the Certificate in Construction Technology program, students will be able to:
  1. Demonstrate basic skills needed to function as an entry-level worker in at least one construction trades concentration area in accordance with industry safety standards: carpentry; electricity; heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC); masonry; plumbing; reinforcing metal worker; or welding.
  2. Exhibit entry-level knowledge in chosen construction trades concentration area.
  3. Demonstrate professionalism as related to the construction trades industry.

CT197B Shielded Metal Arc Welding II

This course builds on the content addressed in CT197A, focusing on the skills and academic competencies necessary for safe, professional and effective practice in intermediate shielded metal arc welding. This course concentrates on knowledge and skills necessary for completion of Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) open V-butt welds in all positions. Emphasis will be placed on core principles in shielded metal arc welding, including use, care, safe operations and maintenance of welding tools; the use, care and safe handling of supplies and materials; the development of an appropriate attitude as related to professional work, and the acquisition of knowledge and information essential for success in initial pursuit of a career in the field of welding.
