I just wanted to keep you in the loop and let you know how I was doing. I’ll be training with a senior tech and Wednesday is my first day out in the field. Here is a photo of me with the van. Thank you for everything!”

Accounting Operations
The Accounting Operations students are also diligently working on their assignments. This week focused on analyzing business transactions.

The Administrative Office Specialist students are progressing along nicely in their program. This week the students analyzed how the office environment is changing in the business world today.

Automotive Collision Technology Technician
One of the processes that an Automotive Collision Technology Technician student must learn is “nib and buff”. After a vehicle part is refinished it must be checked for blemishes, like dirt, fisheyes, solvent popping, and clear runs. When these blemishes are spotted they are removed by sanding in stages of 800, 1200, 2000, and 3000 grit wet sanding paper. The student pictured has been practicing those skills and perfecting his craft!

ADULT EDUCATION

Adult Basic Education/GED® Prep/ESOL
This week in Adult Education, students in the HVAC Integrated Education and Training program continued to press on towards the goal of GED practice tests and official testing. Their focus this week was on a carbon monoxide integrated lesson. This activity included flame-roll out, acceptable %, health risks, chemical compounds, effects of geography, specific gravity, and tools to detect monoxide gas. Did you know that more people die from carbon monoxide poisoning in the Southern states than anywhere else in the country? Non-ventilated generators used during storms are the leading cause of monoxide deaths more than anywhere else in the country. Students also worked on Charlie’s, Boyle, and the Perfect Gas Laws involving solving for missing variables and linked GED algebra components to the HVAC laws.

Congratulations to our most recent GED graduate, Sydney!! She successfully passed all sections of her GED examination and is preparing for post-secondary training to begin her career.
