Radiation Safety (NDT 130) is the first in a series of Industrial Radiographic Testing classes taught at Linn Benton Community College (LBCC) in Albany, Oregon. 40 hours of Radiation Safety training is required of any individual working with x-ray and Gamma radiation sources in industrial radiographic testing, including industrial radiographic inspection students. NDT 130 is part of LBCC’s two-year Associate of Applied Science program in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). The purpose of this OER is to provide students with a comprehensive textbook aligned with the NDT 130 course as taught at LBCC. NDT 130 is taught in accordance with ASNT, SNT TC-1A recommended practice and topical outline following ANSI/ASNT CP-105 2016 guidelines (page 63) for Basic Radiographic Physics Course and Appendix A (pages 113-114) for Radiation Safety topical outline.
This is a short video introduction for technical writing instructors on the iFixit technical writing program. The video discusses how the program works, what the students produce, and why iFixit runs the program.
An open source e-textbook designed specifically for use in LBCC’s WD4 (Technical Writing for Welders) and all versions of IN4 (Technical Writing for CTE). In this easy-to-navigate textbook, you’ll find all the necessary lessons and handouts for the course.
IN4/WD4 covers the processes and fundamentals of writing field-specific technical documents, including organization and development, audience analysis, diction and style, writing mechanics and standard usage, and the editing, proofing, and revising process required for successful workplace writing. The course focuses on writing workplace documents commonly written by technicians: emails, descriptions, customer intake documents, project closeout documentation, bad news messages, instructions, summaries, accident reports, and employment docs (resumes and cover letters), etc.
This course is intended to provide a foundation in the skills and knowledge you'll need to create, remix, adopt, or update open educational resources (OER). Specifically, by the end of the course you'll be able to:
Apply backward design in order to plan learning goals, assessment, and appropriate scaffolding/support,
Describe the meaning of open educational resources,
Locate open educational resources relevant to course learning outcomes,
Properly attribute works offered under a Creative Commons license,
Identify and create works that are accessible to all students,
Add a Creative Commons license to your own work and share back with your disciplinary community.
Subject areas include use of layout and fabrication tools, structural steel connections and components, chalk line layout, tank layout, ladder layout, stair layout, ring-flange layout, pipefitting fit-up, fall-protection, and rigging.
This course presents an overview of the Microsoft Windows Operating System (OS), with emphasis on the OS design, configuration, operations, and applications. This course will also cover PowerShell scripting and includes researching, documenting, and presenting a key OS function.
This course is designed as a survey course to familiarize students with computer concepts including software and hardware, software applications, and living online leading towards digital computer literacy. Instruction in this course is provided through demonstration and discussion. Class time will be provided for practicing concepts as well as working through assignments; however, additional time outside of class will be essential to improve skills and complete the assignments.
The following recipes, or games, are intended to be used as reference and study for the college course: Improvisation. This format has been set up to help with ease of quick learning and immediate application. Bon Appétit !
In this action research project, the benefits and challenges of using Open Educational
Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) were examined for the CS120 Digital
Literacy course at the LinnBenton Community College (LBCC) in Albany, Oregon. Two types of
research data were gathered, quantitative and qualitative.
The quantitative data were based on the end-of-quarter metrics for the six established
CS120 course outcomes (see appendix A). The participants for the quantitative data are the
students from the eighteen CS120 sections which were taught during the 2016 calendar year
(winter, spring, and fall). While the ten winter and spring CS120 sections used a publisher
textbook and companion website material, the eight fall CS120 sections used OER material.
For the qualitative data, a student questionnaire was used (see appendix B). The
participants of the qualitative data are the twenty-eight students in my two fall CS120 sections
which read and signed the Student Consent Form (See appendix D).
The findings of this study indicated:
1) The quantitative data, based on course outcomes, were very positive. The data revealed
that all six course outcomes improved in the fall quarter and each student saved $162 on
2) The qualitative data, based on a questionnaire, were also positive. The majority of the
students stated that the OER-based course is well structured, accessible, easy to use, and
the content covers all six course outcomes. One concern is that 57% of the students stated
they missed having a physical textbook.
This course is designed to teach students about induction motors and the methods used to control and troubleshoot them.

The purpose of this collection analysis is to ensure the Linn-Benton Community College (LBCC) Library’s collection meets the needs of their patrons by providing reliable and up-to-date materials, representing a variety of opinions. This analysis will provide insight into the Library’s physical collection. While academic libraries are typically less interested in the age of the material or their circulation, and more interested in significant, in-depth materials, smaller libraries tend to be more focused on the usefulness of their collection.

Being able to read and understand, as well as sketch, or even draw a blueprint, is important to the making of accurate parts and complete fabrications.
Blueprints are tools that communicate what needs to be built or made, what materials are needed and what specifications are required. They insure that a design is made with complete accuracy what meets the needs of the customer.
This book is an updated version of the originally authored publication by the Department of Engineering and Drafting Technology Department at Linn-Benton Community College, in Albany Oregon.
This booklet will lay out step by step procedures and how they can aid a crafts-person to build templates to build both simple and complicated fabricated parts. Types of materials that can be used with these templates is a combination of flat sheet and round tube our pipe.In order to be successful in the use of this booklet you need to have a good understanding of basic blueprint reading skills, industrial math skill and also basic geometry. Couple this with welding and fabrication skills you can produce a wide variety of fabrications and weldments. This booklet will start off with simple flat patterns and work in to more complex templates for pipe.
A practice-oriented course with examples, applications and proven techniques that demonstrate systems analysis and design. Actual organization, business settings, and project management software are used to show how systems concepts can apply to many different types of enterprises. Project lifecycle as well as project management software, terminology and concepts are discussed. and This course in an introduction to project management. The art and science of project management has evolved much over the last 1-2 decades. At this point, 2017, all small, medium and large companies use structured project management methodologies and guidelines to run their internal and external projects. My objective is not to teach you how to become a project manager, that will require many courses and hands-on experience, but to teach you how to become an effective team player on a structured project.
This is the second of two courses in the administration of Microsoft Windows® client/server networked operating systems. The courses CS 240A and CS 240B are laboratory-intensive courses that provide hands-on experience in the planning, installation, and administration of Microsoft Windows® client/server networks. The two courses provide partial preparation for the MCSA® and MCSE® exams.
