That is hard to say without seeing it, you need to check the timing marks on the cam and crank to make sure they are in proper location with each other. That should have been double checked before they covers were put back on.

If you drove it home from the shop and had no problems, I doubt it's out of time. It would have bucked and kicked all the way home. If it would have moved at all. Sounds more like no fuel or no spark. Check your fuses and relays under the hood. I would bring it back to the shop and tell them that it's not running.
