The Collision Repair Technology program holds the
unique distinction of being the only high school
program in the state to be certified by the National
Automotive Technical Education Foundation
(NATEF). This regularly reviewed national accreditation
ensures that you will be taught with up to date
materials, tools and equipment, increasing your
marketability in the workforce.
Collision Repair is set up as a two-year program
with the first year focusing on: tool identification
and proper use, vehicle construction, minor body
repair, sanding, painting components and techniques,
estimating damaged vehicles, MIG welding,
and other operations related to vehicle repair.
In the second year, you are expected to take a
leadership role within the class, assisting new
students, as well as enhancing and expanding the
skills and knowledge you gained in the first year.
Safety is emphasized throughout the program, as is
cooperation and teamwork.
This quality program includes use of I-CAR, Dupont,
Chief, Hunter and other professional training
materials that meet NATEF and Automotive Service
Excellence (ASE) requirements and standards. This
gives you the opportunity to develop the necessary
technical skills, knowledge, and attitude to be
successful in the automotive industry, as well as
pursue continued education if you desire.
