Collision Repair & Refinishing Technology

A program that prepares individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills to repair, reconstruct and finish automobile bodies, fenders, and external features. Includes instruction in structure analysis, damage repair, non-structural analysis, mechanical and electrical components, plastics and adhesives, painting and refinishing techniques, and damage analysis and estimating.

Upon completion of this curriculum, students should be prepared to take the ASE exams and be ready for full-time, entry-level employment in dealerships and repair shops in the automotive service industry.


Unique Aspects

To accommodate various schedules, we offer classes during the morning, afternoon and evening.

The Collision Repair program utilizes nationally recognized I-CAR curriculum materials to help prepare students for “real world” employment.

We have product manufacturer affiliation with DuPont, 3M and SEM.

Sirotek Hall, the building where Collision Repair classes are held, is a modern, clean facility with state-of-the-art equipment.


Special Program Requirement

Because hand tools are required of each student, we ask that you make every attempt to secure tools within the first three weeks of class. In order to ease the financial burden, the tool list has been divided into two parts—a first semester tool list and a second semester tool list. The tools listed here represent the minimum selection necessary in order to effectively fulfill course requirements.
