Tool Time 12 - Camosun Trades Sampler

Do you suffer from Ergalilektriphobia, or how about Aichmophobia? Not to worry! Take solace in knowing, you are probably among the majority of people, especially youth. So what are these phobias, anyway? Ergalilektriphobia is the fear of operating power tools, and Aichmophobia is the fear of sharp things. Walk into any shop class or art class, or try to do the most minor home repair; even change a flat on your bicycle, and chances are you will have to use some tools that fall into one of these categories. How do you gain the confidence and expertise to utilize and operate these tools to repair, build, assemble, or construct anything from the simple to the complex?? Tool Time!! Tool Time is an innovative new pairing of courses that allows the curious and inventive person to marry online theoretical learning about tool use with hands on tactile projects in a safe shop environment that provides students with competence and confidence related to the operation of a plethora of various hand and power tools. If you are “tool timid” or “tool curious” then this is the course for you! If you already fashion yourself as somewhat of an accomplished tool expert, then this course will provide amazing opportunities to expand your knowledge and proficiency.

Students who successfully complete this course will not only have a wealth of new skills and knowledge, but they will earn 4 credits for a dual credit college level course for the online learning component as well as a 4-credit Tech Ed course. The dual credit college course also serves as a prerequisite to Camsoun College’s new Marine Industry TASK program (running this summer) as well as meeting the common core tool competencies for Camsoun College’s Plumbing and Pipe Trades Foundation program and the Electrical Foundation program.

This course satisfies the grade 10-12 arts education/applied design, skills and technology graduation requirement.
