CORE COURSES


ECONMT 100 (OSHA) Safety Standards:
Construction and Industry (2)

Lecture: 2 hours

This course provides instruction on industry safety and health
rules as it applies to workers and employers within the
construction industry. Topics such as fall protectio
n, lock out tag
out procedures, PPE, excavations, etc. are covered. Participants
that meet the required hourly attendance and successfully pass
the final exam will be eligible to receive their OSHA (30 hr)
safety
-
training certificate.


ECONMT 105 Fundament
als of Solar Electric
i
ty
(3)

Lecture: 3 hours

This course is designed
for
students interested in a career in the
solar industry. The fundamental principles and functions of photo
voltaic industry will be introduced. This course covers planning,
installatio
n, maintenance and all the necessary components for a
photo voltaic system. The transmission and distribution of electric
power will be reviewed. Basic concepts of electricity,
identification, functions and operations of components will be
surveyed.


ECONM
T
115

Fundamentals of DC Electricity

(3)

Lecture, 3 hours

The basic principles or resistive circuits, Ohm’s Law,
Kirchoff's
Laws
, and circuit analysis are covered in this course.


ECONMT 151
Estimating and Blueprint

Reading
(3)

Lecture: 3 hours

The study
of blueprints and related documents.


OR


ETNTLGY 166 Fundamentals of DC/AC (3)

Lecture, 2 hours

Lab, 3 hours

Instruction is given in basic electrical concepts, electron theory,
Ohm's Law, Kirchoff's Laws, series circuits, parallel circuits, and
combinat
ion circuits. This course offers the Theory of DC/AC
Electronics as it applies to basic and advanced circuits found in
analog electronics. The students study their applications in
electronic systems and become familiar with the various
components used to m
ake a viable circuit. In class, the students
will also learn to construct and troubleshoot DC/AC circuits.


ECONMT 171 Electrical Codes and Ordinances I

(3)

Lecture: 3 hours

Basic electrical codes and ordinances are the focus of this course.
General codes
, wiring methods and fittings, and circuit
requirements specified in the various ordinances are reviewed.


ECONMT 205

Fundamentals of Solar Electric
ity
(2
)

Lab
:
6

hours

This course is designed for individuals that have the basic
electrical and mechanical s
kills of an energy technician or
electrician and are looking to expand into the renewable energy
field. This is a hands on class to develop the fundamental
principles and practices for installation and maintenance of solar,
wind, and similar renewable ener
gy systems. This course covers
basic planning, installation, and maintenance of the necessary
components for various renewable energy systems.


ELECTIVES


ETNTLGY 167

Fundamentals of
Semiconductor
Devices Circuits

(3)

Lecture, 2 hours

Lab, 3 hours

Applic
ations of semiconductor devices. Included are photo voltaic
cells, PN junction diodes, Zener diodes, rectifiers, transistors,
switched
-
mode power supply, DC to DC Converter and operational
amplifiers. The student measures and analyzes the parameters
and ch
aracteristics of semiconductor devices and becomes
familiar with the use of transistor testers. The student also
constructs, tests, and analyzes power supply circuits.
Troubleshooting procedures and techniques are introduced.
