Auto Body / Collision Repair Technology

JOIN US FOR OPEN HOUSE ON THURSDAY, NOV. 2. RSVP TODAY!

Fender benders happen, which is why the auto body technician will always be in demand. In the Auto Body/Collision Repair Technology program students begin by learning non-structural repair, panel replacement and alignment, sanding and filling, damage analysis and welding. Students continue their education learning spray booth operation, surface preparation, tinting and finish paint application, trim and graphics application, and vehicle detailing. There is a combination of classroom learning and practical, skill-based work performed in our Auto Body/Collision repair shop. Students will focus on returning vehicles to pre-accident and like-new condition.

Auto Body/Collision Repair Technology students will learn:

  • Researching auto body/collision repair careers
  • Shop safety
  • Basic tool use and identification
  • Non-structural repairs
  • Structural and frame repairs
  • Mechanical systems repair and replacement
  • Welding
  • Paint systems application
  • Paint finishing procedures
