Description of Graded Elements of the Course:

Student test assessments will be graded on the ability to choose the correct answer in regard to multiple choice questions, test questions that require a missing word and brief statements.

Performance assessments are designed to enhance the student’s level of competency based on the course outcomes and expectations of the industry.

Students cannot advance to the Lab Performance Exams until the required practice labs are completed and ALL Practice Labs and Performance Labs must be complete before Course Comprehensive Final Exam will be administered.

20x30 Test Panel
The 20X30 test is designed to test students’ abilities to perform the practiced and necessary steps to create an industry acceptable paint job.   This is a TEST.  An incomplete panel (uncompleted steps) will not be graded. Thus the student will have to repeat the course.

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.

Each student must provide a medical release stating that he/she is physically able to withstand the fatige of working in a paint environment and breathing through a respirator.

Each student must meet the requirements of a respirator fit test and agree to maintain his/her respirator to include filter changes.

Any student that does not provide a medical release and/or meet the requirements of the respirator fit test will not be allowed to participate in any activity that requires the use of a respirator.

Acceptable 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  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

Auto Collision and Management 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 and continues to the last 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.

If a student happens to complete assigned objectives ahead of schedule the instructor and the lead instructor/department chair will discuss and plan activities to continue the growth of these skills. Take advantage of every opportunity to grow as a technician.  The Auto Collision Department is dedicated to developing highly trained entry level technicians with the skills and knowledge to advance at a rapid pace.

But, life happens. In these situations handle it properly. Students should call in and leave word with the instructor or someone in the office. If possible 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 Attendance/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 and lab periods, regardless of grades earned on assignments, will have to repeat the course. This class meets for 1 hour of lecutre and 6 hours of lab per week.  7 hrs X 15weeks = 105hrs x 10% = 10.5hrs or 630 minutes. This is the maximum time that is allowed to be missed to receive credit for the course.

Tardiness:

When a student arrives or leaves after participation record (role) has been taken it becomes the student’s responsibility to alert the instructor of his/her arrival or departure and confirm that the proper update has been made in the student participation record. If the instructor fails to document the arrival or departure it is the student’s fault. This has to be this way especially in the lab environment because the instructor does not keep his participation record on his person at all times.

Leaving the lecture or lab early without proper notice could become a safety issue and needs to be taken very seriously. In an emergency situation each student must be accounted for.

Please, out of respect for first responders, instructors and classmates who may go back into a dangerous situation to get you out, let the instructor know when you leave.

Any earned non-participation time will be recorded, tallied and included in the 10% non-participation policy.

Each Tardy will be 1% addition of non-participation to the non-participation policy.

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.

 

Course Schedule Statement:
This schedule is intended to give the student guidance in what may be covered during the semester and will be followed as closely as possible. However, the instructor reserves the right to modify, supplement, and make changes as the course needs arise.
 
The course week will be from
Monday,
8:00 a.m. through the following Monday, 7:59 a.m.
