Something Is "Cooking" at Denmar


During the past couple months the Electrical Technology Class at Denmar Education has been involved in a great “hands-on” learning experience. The class, taught by Dewey Hoover, began working on the new kitchen to replace the original one, which was built in 1938 with many upgrades over the years.

The job task performances are relevant to the Content Standards and NCCER Curriculum which include the following: conduit bending-support, wire pulling, termination, panel installation, circuit check out, National Electric Code, blue print reading, job lay-out, estimating the amount of materials needed to carry out the task and working as a team.

Permission was given by the West Virginia Fire Marshal’s Office for the electrical class to engage in this realistic learning experience. The project demands “real life” job skills with licensed Journeymen working no more than three licensed Apprentices.

This class project has been very instrumental in providing“hands-on” experience to the students, as well as, conserving money for the WV Division of Corrections at Denmar.

Great Job DCC!
