Narrative

Purchase newer model heavy equipment (backhoe, tractors). Equipment currently used by students does not represent what is used in industry. This new equipment will ensure that students are better prepared to enter the workforce and earn a living wage. This plan also supports the development of a all weather equipment operation track so that we have the ability to train students in a way that represents real world operating conditions and scenarios. Materials and supplies will be purchased to ensure that the equipment operations lab is more in line with industry practices and standards. The material will provide the students with the opportunity to replicate the common operations within the civil construction field, one example of this would be a scenario to perform cut and cover pipeline construction. In addition, a course will be developed that provides instruction related to CPR/first aid, CAL/FED OSHA 30 hour card, competent person training, and traffic control. These certifications increase student value to potential employers for immediate employment.

Butte College’s Education, Child, and Family Studies Department plans to create a Paraprofessional Certificate of Achievement (COA) to meet workforce demand. It is key to note that Fresno City College is the closest community college offering an Educational Paraprofessional Certificate of Achievement (teacher aid). Teacher Assistants (Paraprofessional) is the one occupation within our region that has the most employment as well as the most projected annual job openings.In order to meet the local needs an advisory committee will be establish between 15 Butte/Glenn County Office of Education and school districts. It is anticipated that the certificate will include current approved courses from Butte College with the addition of new courses to meet "No Child Left Behind" and Title one requirements with California Department Education. Investment into the creation of the Paraprofessional Certificate of Achievement will be instrumental in meeting the workforce demands of the surrounding region.

The Recording Arts unit plan includes a request for a Solid State Logic (SSL) mixing console. This is used by all major recording studios. It would facilitate transition to CSU Chico for those students who transfer; provide students with hands-on training with the industry standard equipment; and improve the sound quality of students' projects so that they are more in line with industry production. Given demand, there is program growth potential.

Narrative

The Graphic Design and Multimedia Program has a Drone/UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) course prepared to go through curriculum. This course will not only teach the use of video and still photography as it relates to drone use, but will also teach students the uses of drones for Agriculture, Law Enforcement, Search & rescue, Construction, Journalism, Entertainment, Geographic Mapping, and Wildlife Management to name a few of the current uses. There will be collaboration with programs in these areas to teach all interested students regardless of major or area of interest. Many future uses and technologies will increase the need for qualified drone operators, for what is expected to become a $127 billion industry. In order to teach a full course on Mobile Design and Digital Art with iPads additional iPads and Pencils will be purchase to support all students. Having the additional ipads will allow instruction to occur in other locations, including off-site locations. These ipads will also be used as controllers for the Drones/Quadcopters that will be purchased. In order to transport the iPads, mobile charging stations will be purchased. The Multimedia Studies Program is currently putting a 3D Printing course through curriculum. This course will teach students how to use a 3D printer with a focus on production rather than just design. Companies are in need of skilled employees that can work on 3D printers, manage the output, and print different types of products and materials. To this end, we will need multiple 3D printers for students to work with in the labs. Students will use these printers to also create their own 3D Printers in the form of Maker Space learning and skills building.

Narrative

Most of our students who find work in the photography field, work as portrait or wedding photographers. Strong knowledge of professional lighting gear is critical to this field. We have a sufficient setup now, but we need additional equipment for safety, flexibility and backup in the event of breakdowns. The addition of this new technology will ensure students are familiar with industry standard equipment. Providing each student with the same camera equipment will streamline instruction. Currently, instructors spend considerable time working with students individually, showing them how their individual cameras work, creating needless delays in instruction. The foundational skills that students learn by using and receiving instruction with these cameras will serve them well when they progress through the photography curricula and eventually enter the workforce as professionals. Each camera will be loaned to students and returned at the end of the semester.
