Jason Guenther (CTS)

Jason has worked in a variety of industries over the years before becoming a teacher. With a background in engineering technology he has worked in Edmonton, Calgary and Fort McMurray with a variety of businesses. He has worked with scientific consulting firms, the aerospace industry, and computer integration companies. His specialty is in Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing, where he has been on design teams, done Computer Numerical Control programming, drafting, and consulting. He has been a teacher for 13 years with experience teaching construction, computer science, and mechanical/architectural drafting technologies.

Construction

Construction Technologies has been developed to help meet the educational need for hands-on skills. Students selecting courses from this strand investigate and develop knowledge, skills and attitudes relative to the design, construction and care of wood products. The courses are designed to create an appreciation of the industry and to develop industry relevant skills in cabinet making and basic furniture creation. Take advantage of developing skills for personal use as well as a transition from school to the workplace or post-secondary institutions. This class will provide entry-level skills and practical experience for life-long use.

Fabrication

Fabrication courses provide instruction about the different types metal production industries. The first focus is on the basics of welding (Arc, TIG, MIG, & Oxy-Fuel). This course will teach you how to create welded joints and various techniques metal shaping. Advanced levels will also provide skills in precision machining through the use of a metal lathe and milling machine.

These courses involve a lot of hands on experience with the various machines found in fabrication facilities. The skills taught in fabrication may eventually become a vocation or can simply be used as a personal hobby. In advanced classes, product design will provide additional skills to manage various projects. There are no pre-requisites to start the entry level fabrication class.

Mechanics

The mechanics modules of CTS offers students an opportunity to learn how to use tools in order to do basic maintenance on vehicles. The modules include units on tires, brakes, and basic engine theory and repair. Students will have the opportunity to disassemble and reassemble a basic 4 cycle engine.
