Metals I introduces various processes and job opportunities in manufacturing with emphasis on machining metal parts. Topics include safety, math, measurement, blueprint reading, layout, bench work, sawing, drilling, turning, and milling.
Metals II provides advanced instruction in manufacturing and introduces computer-assisted drafting/manufacturing and numerical control processes. Topics include safety, environmental protection, quality control, metallurgy, materials, layout, assembly, sawing, turning, milling, grinding, computer numerical control, computer-aided manufacturing, welding, and maintenance.
Introduction to Trade and Industrial Education introduces students to concepts needed for careers in Trade and Industry professions including Advanced Manufacturing careers. Skillsets specific to Trade and Industry careers will be provided to include key concepts from a systems approach, including those used in manufacturing processes and will incorporate problem-solving, design, technical communication, modeling, testing, evaluation, and implications of technology.
Classroom in Action
Both courses reinforce English language arts and mathematics. Work-based learning strategies appropriate for these courses include apprenticeships, cooperative education, internships, and job shadowing. Skills USA competitive events, community service, and leadership activities provide the opportunity to apply essential standards and workplace readiness skills through authentic experiences. Geometry is recommended as preparation for both courses.
