Automotive Collision

Auto Collision is a one or two year program providing instruction in all phases of automotive refinishing and non-structural repair.

Students will cover the basics of Automotive Repair and Refinishing. Students will work with spray guns and related equipment while in the spray booth and
mixing room. During the school year, students will be assigned to projects on donor vehicles along with repair panels that will enhance their skill level.

Students will also cover surface preparation, receiving hands on training on both steel and plastic exterior panel repair and replacement. Students will learn how to work with movable glass and hardware/ trim removal and replacement. Students will learn about the use of plastics and adhesives in the repair procedure.

For the 2nd year student, the program reinforces previous skills learned and introduces a more individual learning plan. This is achieved through more complex projects and skill refinement.
