First Term

TRUCK DRIVING 1 (10458100)

1.00

Introduces learners to the laws, regulations and various certification levels of a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). Learners will be instructed on the legal and situational components covered in the testing for a Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP). During this course, learners will have the ability to successfully complete the Department of Motor Vehicle administered CLP testing. Introduces learners to the inspection and basic operation of a Class A Commercial Motor Vehicle.

TRUCK DRIVING 2 (10458101)

4.00

Prepares learners in the operation of commercial motor vehicles. Extensive hands-on training will be implemented throughout the course on tractor-trailers, giving the learner the skills needed to test for a Class A Commercial Driver’s License. Limited lecture will be used to inform students of industry regulations, driver safety, inspections and communication.

TRUCK DRIVING 3 (10458102)

4.00

Builds on skills learned in Truck Driving 1 and 2, as students hone skills and practice to test for a Class A Commercial Driver’s License. This course will focus on hands-on training in advanced driving operations, backing skills, weight distribution techniques, and trip planning.

COMMERCIAL LEARNERS PERMIT PREP (10458104)

1.00

TBD

Second Term

INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY 1 - DIRECT CURRENT ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS (10660123)

1.00

Introduces the fundamental principles of direct current (DC) and the effects of resistance, capacitance and inductance operating within the DC electrical and magnetic fields. Circuit analysis utilizes project based labs where students experience the practical application of Ohm’s, Watt’s, Kirchhoff’s and Lenz’s laws. Learning experiences in IET 1 will be continued and expanded upon in IET 2.

NTC Assessments Offered:
