The Collision Repair course is designed to give students a thorough knowledge of the repair of damaged automobiles and trucks. The Collision Repair technologist is a skilled craftsman that repairs damaged vehicles and restores them to pre-accident condition. This includes conventional and unitized body structural damage and paint refinishing (including single and two-stage painting).
Collision Repair is approved as a Completer Program (a graduation requirement option).
