Dual Credit

Motive Power Dual Credit

Semester Two high school credits and two college courses

Applied work practice is often considered the foundation for all other courses in the Motive Power program.

Overview

Applied Work Practices I – TTM4T (College Course: MPM026)

The topics of this course will focus on skills and knowledge as they pertain to safety, tool recognition and maintenance and appropriate procedures used in a typical Motive Power shop environment.

Engine Systems Part I – TTG4T (College Course: MPM015)

In this course, students will learn about the mechanical aspects of the internal combustion engine and its subsystems. Students are given an opportunity to examine the basic operating principles of the engine and to identify the component parts. A significant portion of time is devoted to engine component assessment, with hands-on activities on sample engines. To enhance the students’ understanding of engine diagnoses, live engines are used to challenge students’ investigative skills.
