Auto Body/Collision Repair I and II

Auto Body/Collision Repair provides students with a broad background in two main units of instruction: Auto Body Repair & Automobile Refinish. Auto body repair involves work in the following: welding, dent repair with plastic fiber, straightening trim work, and frame straightening. Automobile refinish involves pre-paint procedures, spray gun techniques, and the use of refinish materials. Students completing both years of the course are prepared for entry into the automobile repair and refinishing field as an apprentice. Students will earn college credit through Richland Community College by taking this class.
