The Green Technology curriculum consists of four courses all high school students must take as part of the CTE pathway. At the end of their senior year, students will take the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) CAD Assessment (the same test that the professionals take), and receive a credential on their diplomas, and college credit, following the completion of some prerequisites.
Career and Financial Management (CFM)
Designed for freshmen, the CFM course covers career skills such as interviewing, worker-etiquette, and resume writing. It also covers a range of financial skills like using credit cards and banks.
Design and Drawing for Production (DDP)
In DDP, students will learn how to draw by hand. Using professional drafting tools, they will develop high quality drawings that communicate design.
This is a concept-based class delving into fundamentals of alternative energies and efficient construction. Through a partnership with Alfred State College, students get hands-on experience with windmills, solar panels, and frequent field trips to the college campus. This course is a two-period block course for the duration of the year.
Computer Aided Drawing
Students are trained to use professional- grade computer software: AutoCAD 2013. Students will learn to use the myriad of time-saving tools and methods within the program to draw complex technical drawings or parts and floor plans that may otherwise be too difficult to attempt on paper. Students will have the opportunity to use CNC machining centers and a rapid prototype machine. This course is a two-period, year-long course and is also articulated with Alfred State College for credit.
