AVC 110 Safety/OSHA 10

The 10- Hour General Industry Outreach training Program is intended to provide entry-level general industry workers broad awareness on recognizing and preventing hazards on a general industry site.  The training covers a variety of safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter at a general industry site.  OSHA recommends this training as an orientation to occupational safety and health.  Workers must receive additional training on hazards specific to their job.  Training will emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards.  Instructional time will be a minimum of 10 hours.

AVC 112 Blueprint Reading

This course is an introduction to reading and interpreting blueprints. Topics include blueprint views, lines, dimensions and tolerances and blueprint symbols. Working in an interactive online environment students’ learn a systematic approach to reading blueprints.

CFT 101 Introduction to Composites

Introduction to Composites is an introductory course into the materials and processes associated with polymer composite structures, components and design. Emphasis will be placed on material properties, manufacturing process and safety. Hands on lab activities will supplement classroom content. This course provides students with the fundamentals of composite theory in an interactive on line environment.  Students then apply the concepts to industry based projects in a 3D interactive online environment and a world class composite laboratory.  Topics include the materials, equipment, processes, components and design of polymer composite structures.  Prerequisite: AVC100, AVC102

CFT 106 Composite Finish Trim

This course provides students with an understanding of the processes and procedures use to finish trim composites parts. Topics include safety, documentation, tools, procedures and inspection. Top of page Prerequisite: CFT 101, CFT 130, AVC100
