Learning Competencies

Competency #1: "Electrical Safety in the Workplace": Students will demonstrate knowledge and skills related to the practice of electrical safety in the workplace to include:
1. CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) 29 CFR 1910.147 OSHA Lock out/Tag out
2. NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 70 E, Handbook for Electrical Safety in the Workplace
3. Characteristics of Electricity as they relate to the human body.

Competency #2 "Meter Usage": Students demonstrate the ability to decide what type of meter to use to measure electrical component characteristics (resistance, voltage, current) and must decide where and how to connect a meter in an electrical circuit (series, parallel, series-parallel) to measure specific electrical characteristics.

Students apply the knowledge gained in the classroom setting investigating types of meters and how to connect them in specific electrical circuits (series, parallel and series-parallel) to measure specific electrical characteristics (resistance, voltage, current). Students demonstrate the ability to decide which meter to use and how to connect them in an electrical circuit that they have constructed in a real world electrical trainer with real world components in a lab environment demonstrating the practical application of that knowledge. Every instance a student is in the lab environment, meter use procedures are followed demonstrating practice toward competence of the objective. At the end of the semester a verbal final proving acquired knowledge and applied skills is administered using the uploaded documents as rubrics to measure competence and collect data. See rubric for each IST class in the Industrial Systems Technology folder in the document directory.

Competency #3: Decide which fluid power theory(s) and/or formula(s) can be used to explain observable properties (pressure, temperature, volume and flow). Please view the detailed progression of learning objectives which support this program competency in the document directory in the Integrated Systems Technology > IST 1610 Fluid Power folder and IST1611 Fluid Circuits folder.

Competency #4: Decide where and how to connect fluid power components and match the requirements of a fluid powered circuit to the characteristics of actuators, pumps, valves, pressure and flow gauges, hoses and fittings. Please view the detailed progression of learning objectives which support this program competency in the document directory in the Integrated Systems Technology > IST 1610 Fluid Power folder and IST 1611 Fluid Power Circuits folder.

Competency #5: Calculate and measure mechanical drive assembly operating characteristics, install, operate and remove mechanical drives components such as alignment of shafts, couplings, bearings and gears used in industrial motor mounting and mechanical drive systems and applications. Please view the detailed progression of learning objectives which support this program competency in the document directory in the Integrated Systems Technology > IST 1660 Mechanical Drives folder and IST 1661 Mechanical Drives Assemblies folder.

Competency #6: Interpret motor control diagrams to configure, build and operate motor control circuits and operate DC and AC electric motors.

Competency #7: Connect programmable logic controller hardware for specific industrial applications, decide what programmable logic controller software commands should be used to control industrial equipment operation and identify potential faulty components based on stored and reported data. Please view the detailed progression of learning objectives which support this program competency in the document directory in the Integrated Systems Technology > IST 1810 Programmable Logic Controllers folder and IST 1811 PLC Circuits 1 folder.
