    Small Engine and Recreational Equipment . Grade 11 . College Preparation . TTS3C1
    From lawnmowers to snow blowers, chainsaws to go-karts, ATV’s to personal watercraft—these
    are just a few of the hundreds of machines around us powered by small engines. This course covers
    four-stroke and two-stroke engines, fuel systems, ignition systems, cooling systems, and starter units.
    Instructors are industry qualified and are avid recreational equipment owners and participants. You
    will service, measure, repair and modify recreational equipment while applying safe work practices
    and procedures using current technology. You will also develop effective communication and
    teamwork skills when developing solutions to service and repair challenges. Prerequisite: none
     
    MotorSport Technology Design/Build . Grade 11 . University/College Preparation . +MS3MO . 2 credits
    Welcome to the highly sophisticated world of motorsports! You will receive training, from
    a qualified teacher who has successfully built and raced a variety of vehicles, on the
    theoretical concepts of vehicle fabrication, vehicle dynamics and powertrain modifications.
    The “hands-on” portion of the course will consist of physically fabricating a racing vehicle
    of your own design or that of the instructor. This course provides you with opportunities to
    apply the principles of technological design to challenges in communications, manufacturing,
    electronics, transportation, architecture, industrial and consumer products, health and safety
    equipment, and environmental services. You identify user needs, estimate labour and material
    costs, analyze material characteristics, and illustrate design solutions, using traditional and
    computer-based methods. You also acquire the basic design skills required for post-secondary
    studies in engineering, manufacturing, architecture, and construction. You should have
    demonstrated strong academic skills in math, science and literacy in grade 10.
    Prerequisite: TTJ2O1 recommended, not required. Strongly recommended: SNC2D1 & MPM2D1
     
    SPECIALIST HIGH SKILLS MAJOR (SHSM) . Automotive . Grade 11 Workplace/College/Apprenticeship/University Preparation . +HS3CA
    The Specialist High Skills Major is a Ministry of Education approved specialized program that
    allows you to focus your learning on a specific economic sector (in this case automotive service
    and repair) while meeting the requirements for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. (OSSD) It
    is meant to assist you in your transition from secondary school to apprenticeship training, college,
    university or the workplace.
    The SHSM has five components in a bundle of 10 credits over grades 11 and 12 that includes:

    • 5 automotive credits
    • 3 academic credits which have units that are linked to automotive
    • 2 co-operative education credits in an automotive related field
    • industry recognized certifications such as first aid and CPR
    • experiential and “reach ahead” activities that relate to automotive
    • an Ontario Skills Passport (essential skills and work habits)

    Any student enrolling in the automotive technological major is able to enrol in the Automotive
    SHSM. Prerequisite: TTJ2O1 is strongly recommended, but not required
