    Power Mechanics 1: Levels 1 and 2 may not be scheduled in the same year as levels 3 and 4. This course introduces students to basic small engines at a basic level. Students will learn the basic operation of an engine. Students will also learn the main basic parts of an engine. Safety in the lab and industry will also be taught. 

    Power Mechanics 2: Level 1 and 2 may not be scheduled in the same year as level 3 and 4. This course will cover both two and four cycle theory in the lab. Students will have more hands-on experience in this class small than level 1. Safety in the lab and industry along with safe tool usage will be taught. Students will receive training on both engines and equipment such as lawnmowers, tillers, chainsaws, trimmers and other outdoor equipment. 

    Power Mechanics 3 and 4: Power Equipment Technology 3 and 4 are paired as a year-long course. Level 1 and 2 may not be scheduled in the same year. This course will cover more complex equipment and engines in the lab. Students will work in groups on various projects during the year. Safety in the lab and industry along with safe tool usage will also be covered again. Students will receive training on both two and four-cycle engines and more training on chainsaw repairs. Overhead valve engines and training will be covered in more depth in this program. Students may be able to participate in cooperative learning or apprenticeships in this program.
