The School of Automotive Machinists & Technology (SAM Tech) provides its students with the training they need to become highly skilled engine builders. SAM Tech offers courses that cover engine block machining, cylinder head machining, CNC machining, and EFI calibration. These courses are robust and teach students the craft of making horsepower.
The courses that SAM Tech offers can be combined to earn an Associate of Applied Science degree, or they can be taken individually if someone is only interested in specific programs. Once you’re accepted to SAM Tech, you can take as many or as few programs as you’d like. The majority of the students at SAM Tech do end up enrolling in multiple courses after they finish their first program.
Brian Massingill from SAM Tech talks about the course path the school has laid out for students and what their options are.
“The Block Machining course is where we suggest you start if you want to take multiple programs. Then, the natural transition is into the Cylinder Head Program. From there, students will take either the CNC or EFI programs depending on their previous program’s graduation date, and the start date for the new program. If you want to enroll in our Associates degree program, you must take the block and head courses first. After those courses are complete, you will take five more traditional college courses to earn your Associates degree.”
If you’re looking to just broaden your engine building knowledge, or want to go all-in and learn the entire engine machining trade, SAM Tech can help make it happen. You can learn more about the courses that SAM Tech offers right here on the school’s website.
