What the Kids Say

You can't go back and change the past, but you can continue from where you are and change the future
- Tate Dobkins
I really like how it’s hands on, so you get to not only watch what they're doing but learn it and do it yourself, which helps
- Kaeli Pulice
I learned that aluminum welding was so much better than stick welding because it’s like shooting putty out of a squirt gun. I want to build boats in the future and CTE really helps with that and gives me a good chance to build my skills.
- Owen Singley
If you get tired you just have to keep working and not give up, refill and try again

Doing a five and half minute plank for fun. It was really cool meeting everyone. I didn’t think I’d get along with everyone as well as I did. I didn’t know a lot about cooking before I came here and now I know a lot
- Tyson Bromiley
I liked my welding class. I’d like to go home and teach my classmates a thing or two about welding
