Course Policies

Safety Procedures:
Students are required to participate in a safety lecture prior to performing in the laboratory portion of the course. A written test will be given to each participating student covering the presented safety materials. Students must complete the safety with 100% accuracy prior to receiving lab assignments.

All lecture and laboratory safety rules and regulations will be followed in every detail. Failure to comply with this policy will result in dismissal from class until further notice.

Acceptance Attire:

  • NIOSH approved with clear safety glasses will be worn at all times
  • Full-toed shoes (no slippers, sandals, flip-flops, or bare feet)
  • Full length pants (must extend past ankles)
  • Pants must fit around waist within 3 inches of belly button
  • Shirts (no sleeveless or tank tops)
  • Shirts with and without buttons can be worn with instructor approval on neck opening exposure
  • Clothing must be reasonably snug fitting (not excessively loose, baggy, torn)
  • Inappropriate slogans on clothing are not acceptable.
  • Jogging clothes, sweats, or warm-ups are not acceptable.
  • Acceptable headgear: ball caps or bump caps (No do-rags, bandanas or shower caps)
  • The Instructor has the final authority concerning matters of dress

Classroom and Lab Behaviors:

  • Smoking in classrooms, laboratories and shops are prohibited
  • Smoking is permitted only in designated areas
  • Smoking is prohibited within 20 feet of a building, when permitted.
  • Smoking is prohibited within the fenced area surrounding the ACM and CAT Labs.
  • The consumption of drinks, candy and other food items is restricted to lounge areas
  • Eating or drinking in laboratories are hazardous because of the toxic nature of lab materials being handled
  • No horseplay at any time
  • Be responsible – Be a professional

 

 Instructor’s Participation Policy:

 A student is expected to attend and participate during the scheduled period of instruction (lecture and lab). This begins with the first scheduled class day of the term. The student who chooses to consistently participate in class discussions and activities sets themselves to be highly successful. The class and lab activities are designed to develop skills necessary to thrive in the collision repair industry. Skills can only be developed by discovery, observed demonstration, time to try and time to increase neurological and muscle growth. Each student has purchased and set aside time to develop knowledge and skills to be successful in this industry. Make every effort to get everything possible from this time.
 
But, life happens. In these situations handle it properly. Call in and leave word with the instructor or someone in the office. Let the instructor know beforehand so he can work with you and be better prepared to help keep you caught up. Schedule appointments outside of class time when possible. Provide documentation of the events when possible so that accurate records are kept and integrity is never questioned. Make sure to take responsibility of any make up work and adjust lab work to meet project deadlines. Always be honest and straight forward. When life happens, work through it.

 

 

Instructor's Non-Participation Policy:

A student is expected to attend and participate during the scheduled period of instruction (lecture and lab). This begins with the first scheduled class day of the term. A student deemed a non-participant for more than 10% of the lecture OR 10% of the lab periods, regardless of grades earned on assignments, will have to repeat the course.

ABDR 1215

This class meets two (1) hours for lecture and three (2) hours for lab each week for 15 weeks. So, 15 hours for lecture and 30 hours for lab are the hours for this class. 10% of the lecture is 1.5 hours (that’s just 1 ½ lectures) and 10% of the lab is 3 hours.

A student will earn non-participation deductions for failing to be on time, present and failing to participate in the Lecture or Lab activities. So, if you sleep in class, stand around and talk, sit around and wait on “Break Time”, sit on a bucket and lean your head on your lab project, hide in less visible areas, just “do nothing” etc., you will be notified and a non-participation credit will be added to your non-participation record.

 

Late Work/Test Policies:
All students are required to be present for class. However, unexpected circumstances will occur. If a student has an excused absence, death or illness in the immediate family, the student must notify the instructor of record immediately. If a test is missed, the instructor has to give permission for make-up. The missed test must be made up before the next scheduled period of instruction.

An excused absence only allows for make-up of missed assignments or test. The absence is recorded.
 
Assignments are due at the beginning of class of the set due date. Late assignments will not be accepted and a grade of “zero” will be earned for said assignment. Students who prior contacted the instructor may be considered excused.

Pop tests:
Can be given at any time by the instructor and are not make up items.

Exemptions:
Students can be exempted from a final exam if:

A.    Lecture average is 90 or above
B.    Attendance is perfect
C.    Assignments are completed and turned in
D.    Projects are complete

Cell Phone Policy:
Cell phones may not be brought into the classroom or lab as they are unsafe and disruptive to the environment.

Anyone failing to adhere to this policy will be dismissed from class and issued a non-participation grade (absence) for that period of instruction.

Departmental Awards Ceremony/Cleanup Policy:
Each student is expected to participate in the awards ceremony and cleanup activities once the date has been identified.

Student’s final exam grade is dependent upon their participation at these functions. One half (½) of the final exam grade for the course is participation. One half (½) of the final exam grade is completing the final exam for the course.
 
Students with unexpected circumstances can be excused by the department chair only.
TSTC school calendar identifies the end of the semester. Student break begins the day after.
