Course Activities and Design
Because LBME Apprentices come from a wide variety of occupations and because Related Training Courses complement the Apprentice's On-The-Job (OJT) Training, this course is primarily lecture with accompanying homework assignments using Del mars standard textbook of electricity and the american electricians handbook, providing students with a solid knowledge base.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
Procedures will be discussed at the first class session and the instructor's grading policy will be referenced on the class syllabus. A pass/no pass grading option is not available for any APR(Apprenticeship) Course.
