BICYCLE MAINTENANCE BASICS (LHF 0010): This class will cover cleaning and lubing, basic eight-point inspection, flat repair, gear and brake adjustments, and wheel truing on and off bike. Bring your bicycle to class and get hands-on experience. Additional material will be handed out in class. Tools and all cleaning supplies are provided.

ELECTRICAL REPAIR (LHF 0131): It is shocking, but true. You can easily handle your own minor electrical repairs! If you do not want to pay an electrician hundreds of dollars, you can learn to safely test and replace light switches, outlets, light fixtures, and ceiling fans. Be trained in the basics of home electrical systems and how you can make informed decisions concerning repairs, purchases and maintenance. This presentation is taught by Ernie Hagenow, Jr., a licensed electrician and principal of Genuine Electric, a local contractor.

WELDING FUNDAMENTALS (LHF 0100): We will utilize a user-friendly approach to introduce you to a potentially intimidating craft. You will practice various steel handling techniques, including MIG welding and plasma cutting, as we stress basic welding safety. You will complete a project which utilizes your new skills and allows you to develop a basic comfort level with welding and project work.

Please note, not all courses are offered every semester.
