A Curriculum Guide for Heavy Equipment Operation and Maintenance: Safety & First Aid, Operation, Maintenance, Truck Driving, Diesel Mechanics, Construction Surveying.
Pollock, Steve; Henegar, Wayne
This curriculum guide uses six units to classify the areas of study which are taught under the broad category of Heavy Equipment Operation and Maintenance. The units are Safety and First Aid (1.0.0), Heavy Equipment Maintenance (2.0.0), Heavy Equipment Operation (3.0.0), Truck Driving (4.0.0), Diesel Mechanics (5.0.0), and Construction Surveying (6.0.0). The units and sections within the units are identified by a three place numbering system: the first number refers to the unit of study, the second refers to a section within the designated unit, and the third refers to the task or objective within the designated section. Since the six units separate the material into readily accessible divisions for teaching purposes, any one of the units 2.0.0 through 6.0.0 can be taught as a separate offering. Within each unit like tasks are collected into sections for instructional continuity. Each section details tasks which have been identified as essential or desirable for the development of entry level skills in the job field, with each task written as a measurable objective in a format which includes the following: Title of the competency (task), objective, equipment, special preparation (in some tasks), student action, performance check, and resources.
