The first year course studies provide training in collision repair and refinishing automobiles.

Also, how correct repairs are executed as well as development of skills in M.I.G. (Metal Inert Gas) welding. Repairing, replacing and aligning exterior bolt-on panels such as fenders, hoods, doors and deck lids will be performed. Students will also gain a basic understanding of how (base coat/clear coat) products are applied. Students will also be enrolled into I-Car and will be able to receive an I-Car Platinum certification upon completing the two year program.

In the second year of Collision Repair Technology students will gain a greater understanding of automotive refinishing with a much greater focus on work ethic as well as how to be productive in the lab setting. Focus will be put on paint mixing, color matching as well as color tinting and product application. They will gain additional training in sanding, masking, estimating, exterior and interior trim, frame straightening as well as uni-body construction and repair. Students who complete their I-Car on-line and live courses will receive an industry recognized I-Car Platinum Certification in Refinishing and Non-Structural repair. This course is recommended for students interested in the following careers: Insurance adjuster, body shop owner, metal fabricator, welder, collision repair technician, refinish technician, detailer etc.
