Small Engine Equipment Technology


Instructor: Mr. Brady

Program Overview

The Small Engine Equipment Technology (SET) program is divided into two areas of training: Outdoor power equipment and motorcycles. Students in the 9th-12th grades are guided through a progressive, educational competency environment. Some of the competencies covered are safety, carburetor theory, and the maintenance and repair of two and four stroke engines. In the fully equipped laboratory, the students apply the skills they have acquired by dismantling and reassembling L-head and overhead valve engines. As students progress through the curriculum, they learn to diagnose, service, and repair lawn and garden equipment such as lawnmowers, riding mowers, chain saws, line trimmers, and leaf blowers. The SET facility and curriculum content is certified by the Equipment and Engine Training Council (EETC) which is the only nationally recognized certification body for the outdoor power equipment programs in colleges and high schools.
