Students in the Hart district will have access to free, hands-on occupational training this year.

The William S. Hart Union High School District announced that its Regional Occupational Program will offer high school students ages 16 years and older career-oriented classes teaching culinary arts, business and plumbing.

The classes, taught by professionals in the industries, will also be available to adults on a space-available basis at a fee.

The Culinary Arts class will teach students the principles of food selection, preparation and evaluation. It will also explore the study of meal management, various cuisines and food presentation.

The ROP Virtual Enterprise business class will employ students in hands-on business practices through a network of student-run model businesses across the globe.

The students will develop business plans, “sell” their products to other Virtual Enterprise companies, participate in trade shows and determine profit margins at the end of the year.

The Plumber’s Assistant class, the program’s latest addition, will teach students construction math, use of hand and power tools, interpretation of blueprints, basic rigging and communications.

The culinary class will meet Mondays and Wednesdays at West Ranch High School starting Monday. The business and plumbing classes will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays at Golden Valley High School and Saugus High School, respectively, and will begin Tuesday.
