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
Great Job DCC!
