Auto Collision Technology is a four year program that educates and trains students for career paths and further education opportunities in the auto collision trade. Students complete a course of study meeting the national standards of NATEF (National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation) and the technician certification requirements of ASE (Automotive Service Excellence).
Students receive extensive training in structural and non-structural damage analysis & repair, painting & refinishing, automotive welding, mechanical & electrical component repair and the use of plastics & adhesives. Students are provided with entry level knowledge and skills that will permit them to specialize in one of the many areas of the trade. Training and education is accomplished by repairing actual vehicles that have been damaged due to collision loss and those in need of cosmetic repairs.
During the four year course academic skills in math, English, and science are integrated into the technical program in the shop and classroom environments. These essential academic skills help prepare students for career paths and life skills necessary to compete in a global job market.
The Auto Collision Technology program uses the latest methods, materials, tools, and equipment in the education and training of its students. The use of technology meets or exceeds the national requirements of ASE under the certification guidelines of NATEF.
