Plumbing. Trade and Industrial Education Course of Study.
Erisman, Kenneth E., Comp.; Gerberich, Charles F., Comp.
Intended to be used as a teaching and learning guide, the basic course of study presented in these materials is designed to provide the essentials of the plumbing trade, insuring that students who successfully complete the course will have sufficient competencies for initial employment and ample orientation for growth and development. The course of study is designed as a 3-year curriculum involving approximately 1,500 hours of class and laboratory instruction. The material has been arranged in major divisions of the trade: (1) Pipes and Fittings, (2) Valves, (3) Cold Water Supply, (4) Hot Water Supply, (5) Drainage Systems, and (6) Fixtures. Most of the course material consists of job sheets, which indicate to the student what to do in performing various jobs assigned, and skill competency sheets, which supplement job sheets and indicate to the student how to perform the manipulative handling of tools and materials that make up the doing part of the occupation. They are simply written and highly illustrated. A cumulative reuse of the skill competencies continues throughout the entire job sheet collection. The job sheets are arranged in an order that gradually exposes the skill competencies to insure the introduction of each operation or skill competency in a controlled manner. Included for use by the teacher are general course objectives, suggested teaching methods and vehicles of instruction, and a list of items to be developed by the local teacher. Sample information sheets, sample assignment sheets, and a bibliography are included. (HD)
