Energy and Environmental Training

NEW! Process Technology

High demand careers start at CCBC!

New! Starts January 2015

Earn an associate degree in an industry-approved program in two years or less. Be ready for future jobs in the oil and gas industry.

There is a high demand for Process Technicians in the oil & gas industry and other process industries such as polymers, specialty coatings, food/beverage, energy, wastewater treatment, etc.  Process Technicians work in a team that is responsible for operation and maintenance of a manufacturing plant.  Process Technicians are also key members of a team that plans, analyzes, and controls all stages of manufacturing beginning with the acquisition of raw materials, conversions of these materials to useful products, and distribution of products to customers.

The Process Technology Associate in Applied Science program at CCBC is designed to prepare students for high-demand careers as process technicians and to further their education towards a four-year degree in engineering or management.  The program includes nine core courses adapted from the North American Process Technology Alliance (http://www.naptaonline.org/about.php) curriculum and provides a broad base of math, science, computer literacy, team-worker skills, and hands-on mechanical aptitude.  These courses have been adapted from time-tested and proven curricula used by students in Texas to successfully land jobs in the oil & gas industry, and other chemical manufacturing industries.
