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 test 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.
 
Required Attire for Welding Lab:
Safety Glasses 
Welding Cap
Welding Helmet
Welding Jacket *
Welding Gloves
  •  A long sleeve heavy weight cotton or denim shirt without pockets, or pocket flaps that either button or snap shut, maybe substituted for a welding jacket
  •  Due to their potential for flammability, at no time should any clothing made of synthetic material be worn in the welding lab. Examples: Nylon, Rayon, Polyester, or fabric blends containing these products. Athletic Suits, Track Suits, Jogging Suits, and Windbreakers, are some of the most common items of clothing made of synthetic fabric. Athletic foot wear is sometimes made using plastic or other synthetic materials that may also be flammable.
Acceptable Attire
  • NIOSH approved safety glasses with clear lenses 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 on neck opening can be worn with instructor approval.
  • 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
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.

 

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. A student deemed a non-participant for more than 10% (_____ hours) of the lecture or 10% (_______ hours) of the lab periods, regardless of grades earned on assignments, will have to repeat the course.
 
A student is considered tardy up to 15 minutes into the scheduled lecture or lab, and thereafter will be considered a non-participant for that period of instruction.
