Courses

ADVANCED AUTOMOTIVE
Advanced Automotive is designed to expand upon the concepts of Consumer Automotive. Students will spend a greater amount of time in the lab applying skills and concepts learned to service vehicles and complete assignments. Proper tool usage and safe lab practices will be stressed throughout this course. Prerequisite: Completion of Consumer Automotive.

AGRICULTURAL CONSTRUCTION (ROP)
Students will be able to expand on the skills developed in prerequisite classes. These students will be able to select a specific area of interest, which will enable them to construct projects of any size. FFA material will be covered and each student will have a Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE). Projects are required. This is a two-period class. Students are required to participate in 6 FFA activities per semester. Prerequisite: Basic Agricultural Mechanics or Welding.

AGRICULTURAL LEADERSHIP (ROP)
These courses are designed to develop students’ skills and abilities in the field of judging agricultural commodities as a member of a team. The following areas of judging skills are studied: dairy cattle, dairy products, meats, livestock, horses, parliamentary procedure, public speaking, and welding. FFA material will be covered and each student will have a Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE). Students are required to participate in 12 FFA activities per semester.

AGRICULTURAL MAINTENANCE (ROP)
Students will be able to expand on the skills developed in prerequisite classes. These students will be able to select a specific area of interest, which will enable them to construct projects of any size.

CONSUMER AUTOMOTIVE
Consumer Automotive is an ideal course for the present or future automobile operator. All areas of automobile operation, maintenance, and ownership will be explored. By completing projects individually or in groups, students will learn proper work habits and tool usage. Students will have the opportunity to service their own vehicles, although school supplied vehicles are also available. This class is articulated with Cuesta College, which means that a student can receive credit at Cuesta through an examination process, when the full year course (both semesters) are completed.

WELDING
Welding will provide an understanding of the principles of electric arc welding, oxygen-acetylene welding and cutting, selection of welding equipment and plasma cam. Students will be exposed to career opportunities in welding and development skills necessary to advance in the agricultural mechanics program. FFA material will be covered, and each student will have a Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE). This class is articulated with Cuesta College and West Hills College, which means that a student can receive credit at Cuesta or West Hills through an examination process. Students are required to participate in 6 FFA activities per semester.

WORK EXPERIENCE
Work Experience provides elective credit for working at a job. Students must obtain, on their own, a job that meets the course requirements of: working as an employee (not an independent contractor), receiving a paycheck showing taxes are withheld from wages, working for an employer who has Worker’s Compensation Insurance, and working for an employer within the school district boundaries. Students earn one period of elective credit for working at least 10 hours per week, and two periods of elective credit for working at least 20 hours per week.
