Energy and Power
In this course, students analyze energy sources and explore the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity using the Energy Industry Fundamentals modules from the Center for Energy Workforce Development (CEWD). The course provides math, science, and technical-writing skills through hands-on application. Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.
Students have an opportunity to take the Energy Industry Fundamentals Certificate Assessment.
