This course covers welding methods used for securing body sheet metal including the thinner, high-strength, low alloy steels. Some of the methods covered in depth are: arc, oxy-acetylene, MIG, and TIG welding. Emphasis is placed on proficiency in repairing steels found in panels and vehicle frames, the use of heat as a straightening medium is investigated, and choosing welding equipment for a body shop, sheet metal fabrication and fuel tank repairs are included.
This course provides instruction and practical experience in wrecker operation including hook-ups, winching, dolly use, wheel lifts, and safety. It includes instruction and practical experience in auto body damage estimate writing and analysis.
This course is designed to provide instruction in the diagnosis and repair of electrical circuits, alternators, distributors, starters, and fuel systems. Basic wrecker operation and the use of manuals and computer information services are also included.
The application of several common welding methods in use in the heavy repair field is covered in this course. Actual welding using arc, gas, MIG, TIG, and spot are practiced in the lab. The safe use of the cutting torch and plasma cutter and "booth time" is supplemented by the use of various processes in the actual repair of vehicles and equipment.
This unit of instruction is designed to train high school graduates and adult learners in the service and diagnosis of light truck brake, steering, and suspension systems. Vehicle alignment, tire balancing, and vibration diagnosis are included. Students will be trained to operate a variety of brake, suspension, and alignment equipment while performing actual repairs, adjustments, and diagnosis. This training will supplement the students' truck education in preparation for entry-level employment.
The students will become proficient in diagnostics and repair of ignition systems, fuel systems, charging and starting systems, electrical & computer applications, emission systems, and complete engine diagnostics.
This course includes lab application of vehicle exhaust, tires, preventive maintenance, and annual safety inspection checks. Repair techniques to insure driver comfort and engine efficiency through the control of heat are studied as they apply to auto cooling, heating, and air conditioning systems.
This course covers all facets of welding as they apply to the servicing of cars and light trucks. Some methods covered are: stick, oxy-acetylene, MIG, and TIG. The safe use of the cutting torch and plasma cutter and "booth time" is supplemented by the use of various processes in the actual repair of vehicles and equipment.
