OBJECTIVES OF THIS COURSE:
This is a skill-based training program that teaches the skills needed to be a professional painter and drywaller, more specific drywall repair and installer and painter. Students will be able to identify the tools required for these trades, learn how to effectively use them, set up for jobs, clean up and learn how to get leads and bid on jobs. This is a hands-on training and some homework will be provided. The majority of the homework is designed to be at the beginning of the training. Once in the classroom lab, the information will be reinforced by the student either by examples and demonstration as well as many opportunities to practicing the skills.
The lab is the classroom for the students. It is designed to be a real-life situation that the student will have to encounter when working. It is there, that the students will spends time developing and mastering the skills that have been introduced. To that end, we have designed our programs to a “tactile” learner experience which allow the student the opportunity to practice and develop their skills under supervision. Although that is our focus, students will be exposed to a variety of different learning styles throughout of the program. Most of the training will take place by the students carrying out techniques in the lab rather than the student sitting and listening to a lecture. The ultimate goal is to teach the students in a way that they can master the techniques by hands on experiences.
Our goal is the provide students all of the skills needed to be a Residential Handyman. With this being the students first class. Students will be given a variety of tasks and required to demonstrate their knowledge to successfully complete the training. These task needs to be performed successfully to meet the requirements of the program. Once the student successfully completes the program they will have the skills to work as a professional that can install and repair drywall and provide a professional paint job for their customers.
Completion of this course will prepare the student for working in the residential area and give them the skills needed to start and complete professional work in the areas of painting and drywall. Successful students that completes the program will receive a certificate indicating that they have successfully completed the program and that they have learned the skill of a professional painter and drywall repair and installer.
