Collision Repair

Our Collision Repair Technology program gives you the skills to transform wrecked vehicles into a custom designed masterpiece. Students are instructed in the use of state of the art equipment to replace and repair automotive body parts. Students personalize and customize vehicles by learning refinishing/painting techniques.

Today’s auto body technicians must be trained in the construction of the automobile body and framework. Automobile production uses materials and manufacturing techniques that demand that the auto body repair technician be competent in metalworking, welding, uni ‐body construction, surface preparation, spray painting and accurate repair estimating. Students use safe and modern repair equipment in all phases of their training.
