    AM STEM is a class (available to sophomores - seniors) in which you can complete courses toward earning a 900 hour certificate in Automation Manufacturing and Robotics from Bridgerland Technical College (BTech). This class is offered at Ridgeline and all of the high schools in Cache, Logan, Box Elder and Rich school districts. Mr. Petersen facilitates this class at Ridgeline by helping with any questions and lab work. Several teachers at Bridgerland are connected with all of the schools by way of closed circuit video and audio into the classroom to direct the course and are available to help as needed. This class is free as long as the student is in high school or can carry the earned credit to BTech after high school to complete the certification.

    In this class, students take the following courses: Progression Chart

    After earning the 900 hour certificate, students are well prepared to obtain valuable work or continue on to college with a good basic understanding of automated manufacturing. Students going onto college will often work in well-paying jobs while they attend college or even get paid schooling by their employer. We have very strong partnerships with local business in manufacturing. Students can earn Industry Certifications in AM STEM including CSWA (Certified SolidWorks Associate), and CSWP (Certified SolidWorks Professional).
