- More Information about Collision Repair Technology
Students learn to apply advanced collision repair techniques and principles in diagnosing damage and prescribing corrective work. The major emphasizes collision repair shop management, as well as the theory and skills of metal and plastic repair, MIG and plastic welding, unibody straightening, multi-component paint systems, estimating, and hazardous-material handling. Basic and advanced collision repair skills are stressed, coupled with an understanding of business principles.
Independent collision repair shop owner/operator, assistant collision repair manager, service equipment representative, insurance estimator, skilled jobs involving paint application in manufacturing or service industries, dealer service specialist.
Recommended High School Subjects
Three years of English, two years of algebra, and one year of science.
