Collision Repair Technology

About

The mission of the Collision Repair Technology Program is to provide diversified maintenance training to students to meet the occupational needs of prospective employers in our community.

This program is based on reconditioning the structure, shape and appearance of an auto body shell, frame, and component parts, as practiced in theory and on live projects. Students will gain an understanding of the characteristics of metal, plastic, paint equipment and the human element.

The repainting components of the program will introduce the student to the auto refinishing industry with use of training systems such as SimSpray, which simulates spray painting using a fully immersive 3-D environment. The program will also include metal reshaping, fabrication, surface spraying, color matching, and equipment maintenance.

Schedule: Monday – Friday, 7:45 AM to 2:30 PM
