The goal of the Automotive Technology program at the Copper Country Career and Technical Education Center is to introduce and prepare students to explore or enter the automotive field. This program provides a "head to hands-on" approach that will lead to success in post-secondary training and into an expanding automotive-related field. Students involved in this program may range from technician trainees to pre-engineering students. Some of the instructional areas to be covered are: front-end alignment; engine diagnosis; electrical systems; suspension; and brakes.

Health Careers

Grade Level: 11-12
Elective: Full year 4 credits (two class periods per day)
Prerequisites:  None

The Health Careers program provides students with the opportunity to explore the many available career options in the health care profession. Students learn CPR (Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation), emergency first aid, medical terminology, basic anatomy and physiology, and the communication skills necessary for success in the health care field. After completion of the core curriculum, including-but not limited to-communication skills, professionalism, infection control, legal and ethical issues in health care, confidentiality, and safety, students have an opportunity to experience hands-on training and job shadowing in local facilities with professionals in the careers, they would like to explore. Students also research the roles of various health care professionals through reading, accessing Internet sites, and viewing educational videos to learn more about the careers they may be interested in pursuing. Guest lecturers in the classroom share their knowledge and demonstrate skills, while field trips allow students to get a first-hand look at many of the career options related to health care.

Nursing Assistant

Grade Level: 11-12
Elective: Full year 4 credits (two class periods per day)
Prerequisites: None

The Nursing Assistant program is ideal for students who would like to explore nursing as a possible career and for those who would like to work as a Nursing Assistant. This course will provide training for students to obtain the skills necessary to take the state of Michigan's competency evaluation exam to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). Upon successful completion of the exam, students will have their name placed on the state registry and will be eligible to work as a Nursing Assistant in hospitals, nursing homes and with health care agencies.

This course is a combination of theory, lab practicum (where students practice skills), and clinical instruction (students do direct patient care under the guidance of their instructor). Students enhance their verbal and written communication skills in a health care environment and learn the professional, legal and ethical issues related to health care. Students explore employment opportunities in this fast-growing field through field trips and guest speakers.
