Tech Craftsman Career Building Trade School Will Offer the Highest Level of Vocational Training
During the Alpha Phase, Career Building Center will be concentrated on Automotive training. We realize not everyone wants to be an automotive technician so during the Beta Phase heavy equipment and construction training will be added. As you read, you'll see there are many related courses included within each topic.

Tech Craftsman Career Building Trade School Programs and partner in higher education, Advanced Technology Career University Programs

  • High Technology Diploma & GED Preparation
    • High school diploma programs or GED preparation courses can give you the chance to take care of an important first step toward being able to achieve what you really want. Even if you didn't finish high technology the first time around, you still have a chance to earn a credential that makes up for it. Maybe you're an adult who wants to go to college, achieve better job prospects, or set a good example for your family.
  • (TCCBTS): Engine Remanufacturing Program:
    • Diagnose engine, remove engine from vehicle, disassemble engine, send to machine shop to remanufacturer cylinder heads and engine block, cam shafts and crankshafts, bring engine components back to manufactures specifications, reassemble engine and reinstall back into vehicle
  • (TCCBTS): Transmission Remanufacturing Program:
    • Diagnose transmission, remove from vehicle, disassemble transmission replace all parts with new parts and reassemble, reinstall back into vehicle
  • (TCCBTS): Machine Shop Instruction: Cylinder Heads
    • First things done, pressure clean cylinder heads before any disassembly, Most cylinder heads these days are made of an aluminum alloy due to its light weight, durability and heat transfer qualities. However, cast iron was the material of choice in the past, and is still used on many vehicles today. Whether made from aluminum or iron, all cylinder heads have valves and seats. Check cylinder head: valve guides, seats, cylinder head surface flatness, cracks and physical damage the resurface cylinder heads, replace valves, valves springs, retainers and valve locks. After disassembly pressure cleaning cylinder heads once again, the first cleaning was to remove all oil and grease making it easier to disassemble and place in parts in a chronological order
  • Lapping the Valves
    • Performed, the guides must be within factory recommended specifications. Knurling is a process in which metal is displaced and raised, thereby reducing clearance, giving a true center, and providing oil control. Installing a guide insert involves machining the guide to accept a bronze insert. One style is the coil-type which is installed into a threaded guide. Reaming for oversize valves restores normal clearances and provides a true valve seat. Most cast-in type guides can be reamed to accept a valve with an oversize stem. Replaceable-type guides are pressed into the cylinder head. A hammer and a stepped drift or punch may be used to install and remove the guides. Before removing the guides, measure the protrusion on the spring side of the head and record it for installation.

  • Included and incorporated into CBC s Engine Remanufacturing Programs are the following programs

  • (TCCBTS): Machine Shop Instruction: Engine Blocks
    • Before machine shop receives engine, engine intern/apprentice will disassemble engine and then the machine shop will pressure clean before, Bore and hone cylinders walls, take measurements on cylinder wall to see if oversize pistons are required. Machine all cam shafts and crankshafts, return to engine intern/apprentice to reassembly engine with new pistons and pistons rods, rings, and new main bearings, and reinstall reconditioned cylinder heads.
  • Advanced Automobile Diagnostics:

  • Heavy Equipment
    • Heavy equipment training can introduce you to a big world of satisfying opportunities. Here's why: The tradesmen and women who work with large mobile machinery contribute greatly to making the way we live possible. Think about it: Heavy-duty vehicles and machines play a huge role in creating, maintaining, and delivering almost every basic thing we rely on today. Without them, we'd have far fewer roads, bridges, buildings, and airports. We'd have a smaller selection of food in the grocery store. And we'd have a lot fewer stores, period. Even the energy we use to light our homes and drive our cars would be scant or non-existent.
  • Diesel Mechanic
    • Diesel mechanic technology program can prepare you to become part of the thriving field that powers heavy duty trucks, buses, and other industry equipment.
  • Small Engine Repair
    • Able to fix things like powerboats, motorcycles, ATVs, and outdoor power equipment
  • Motorcycle Repair
    • Motorcycle must be kept in top shape to prevent any type of mishaps. Safety is the key in this business and as a mechanic. It s important to be responsible for regular maintenance, repairs, and upgrades. Motorcycles, especially modern ones, are complex machines. That's why motorcycle mechanic technology programs are so important.

These programs will be added to offer hands-on internship/Apprenticeship training on the job for an industry in need of such trained personnel.

  • Carpentry
    • Training can also offer you the opportunity to specialize in a particular area of this rewarding field, including building maintenance, home renovations, cabinet making, new construction, furniture making, and more. Some programs may even allow you to gain valuable, real-life experience through a paid externship. You'll also learn the latest safety considerations and industry regulations.
  • Construction Management
    • Getting construction management training, you can learn valued skills for a variety of project types. For example, as a construction project manager, you might work on projects like houses, commercial buildings, bridges, roads, or schools. And you might handle important responsibilities such as scheduling, personnel management, cost estimating, and risk analysis.
  • Electrician
    • Knowledge and ability needed to work with electricity safely and with confidence.

Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Employment Projections program Employment of plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters is projected to grow 21 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for plumbers will stem from new building construction and stricter water efficiency standards for plumbing systems, such as low-flow toilets and showerheads. The construction of new power plants and factories should spur demand for pipefitters and steamfitters. Employment of sprinkler-fitters and plumbers is expected to increase in states that adopt changes to the International Residential Code, which requires new single- and double-family homes to have fire sprinkler systems.
