Classes I Teach

Tenure ceremonyI was hired by MJC in August of 2005 with the specific purpose of developing and delivering courses for the electrical trade. That's what I have been doing up to today. Many other good professors are teaching classes for this area in our campus and with my courses we complete the core formation for a proficient electrician.

 

World of Electricity & Electronis - ELTEC 208 - This class is part of the DAS Electrician Trainig Program

I am not the author of this course, but by following the guidelines and contents of the course outline, I have created my own version of it. All the basics are covered along my classes, but I try to stress those items that will become relevant in future electrical oriented courses. I highly recommend to take this course as the very first of any technical path related with electronics or electricity. To see the description and learning outcomes of this course, please follow the link listed in the column at the left.

Motors, Controls, and Controllers ELTEC 226  - This class is part of the DAS Electrician Trainig Program

This course is focused in the understanding of the functioning and control of industry's work horse - The Electric Motor. Although in the Electronics Department we do not require a specific sequence of courses, I strongly advise students not to take this course in their first semester unless they already have a technical background. An intelligent strategy for the student to receive the most benefits from this course is to take first ELTEC 208, ELTEC 223, ELTEC 230, and ELTEC 320. To see the description and learning outcomes of ELTEC 226, please follow the link listed in the column at the left.

Commercial & Industrial Wiring - ELTEC 229  - This class is part of the DAS Electrician Trainig Program

This course was created as the last class for a series of courses meant to build all the basics skills of a proficient electrician. Although in the Electronics Department we do not require a specific sequence of courses, I strongly advise students not to take this course in their first or second semesters unless they already have a technical background. An intelligent strategy for the student to receive the most benefits from this course is to take first ELTEC 208, ELTEC 223, ELTEC 226, ELTEC 230, and ELTEC 320. To see the description and learning outcomes of ELTEC 229, please follow the link listed in the column at the left.

Blueprint Reading for Electricians - ELTEC 230  - This class is part of the DAS Electrician Trainig Program

Although this is not a class that demands deep knowledge, having some understanding of electrical circuits helps students to perform at their best. It can be selected as a complement for AGMECH 225, ELTEC 223, or ELTEC 320. To see the description and learning outcomes of ELTEC 230, please follow the link listed in the column at the left.

Electrical Safety - ELTEC 320  - This class is part of the DAS Electrician Trainig Program

This class teaches the regulatory framework related to electrical safety as well as many of the practical issues of this important subject. I suggest students to take this course in their second semester. To see the description and learning outcomes of ELTEC 320, please follow the link listed in the column at the left.

Photovoltaic Systems - ELTEC 321

This class is meant for advanced students, advanced apprentices, technicians, or journey level electricians. It is focus in the sizing and implementation of residential photovoltaic systems. It follows NABCEP guidelines and prepare students for the NABCEP Entry Level Exam. To see the description and learning outcomes of this course, please follow the link listed in the column at the left.
