How do I get in the Collision Repair program?
Program admittance is competitive due to the large number of students interested in the program. Passing a drug screen and obtaining the necessary tools are required for program admissions. Program admission is only in the fall semester. Successful program completion requires both fall and spring semesters.

Collision repair professionals are retiring from the industry faster than employers can find qualified replacements. Couple that with the fact that as long as people drive, there will be accidents resulting in exterior damage to vehicles that need to be repaired, and you’ve got an equation for greater levels of job security than many professions.

Today’s advanced technology
has greatly changed the structure, materials and parts used in automobiles. Because of this, repair technicians need to know the newest techniques for repairs and be skilled at implementing them. In addition to possessing good manual dexterity, repair technicians must also have a solid understanding of math, science and electronics in order to be effective in their jobs. Our training program can provide you with that and more. Collision repair technicians fix damaged bodies and body parts of automotive vehicles such as cars, vans, trucks, buses, campers, and trailers.  They may estimate the cost of a repair job; pound out small dents with a hammer, pick hammer, or punch; straighten bent or twisted frames/weld metal parts; remove parts to gain access to vehicle body and fenders; and remove, repair, or replace fenders, doors or other body parts.
