Collision Repair Program Components
Collision Repair work has variety and challenge-each damaged vehicle presents a different problem. Repairers must develop appropriate methods for each job, using their broad knowledge of automotive construction and repair techniques. Collision repairers straighten damaged bodies, remove dents and replace crumpled parts that are beyond repair.
The Collision Repair Program is a four semester certificate program offering training in the latest methods and skills involved in the estimating, repairing, refinishing, and re-alignment of motor vehicles.
