Each year American drivers log millions of miles on the highways, and each year there are thousands of accidents that will require the service of a trained technician to repair these vehicles. The Auto Collision Repair & Refinish program teaches students to examine vehicles to determine type and extent of damaged parts, both cosmetic and structural. This program is fast-paced and intensive, as today's complex vehicles are constructed with high strength steel, plastics and computer systems. During the year, the student learns mig welding, straightening techniques, proper use of plastic fillers, surface preparation, and refinishing techniques. This program is certified by NATEF (National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation).
