Unit(s): 1.50

Prerequisite: State Indentured Carpenter Union Apprentice; CARP 040A; CARP 040B
Advisory:READ 022 or appropriate placement; MATH 070 or appropriate placement

This course is designed to meet the needs of indentured apprentices with the State of California who are interested in the carpentry industry. The course covers the basic techniques and procedures used to install suspended scaffolds, with training focused on the terminology and use of scaffold components in cable (i.e., wire rope) suspended configurations. Topics include anchorage systems, structural supports, hoists, and suspension devices. Students form eyes in wire rope using proper clamping techniques, and safety hazards and increased fall protection measures are taken as students follow design plans to construct cable-suspended scaffolds.
