General and Required Tools
Students enrolled in our career track Morning and Afternoon classes will be required to furnish his/her own hand tools. Students in the program are given a list of required tools, which can be obtained from one of several sources with special student pricing programs through the College. First-semester student tools cost approximately $500 to $1000, depending upon the brand of tools and the supplier, with a recommended additional tool cost of approximately $1200 to $1400 spread over the remaining semesters. Hand tools and specialty tools are furnished through the Central Tool Room for the Evening and Saturday Programs.
