COLLEGE CREDITS - Tech Prep
Two-year program: grades 11-12
The Auto Collision program is designed to teach students the complete cycle of repairing automobiles and other vehicles damaged from normal “wear and tear” or from accidents and collisions. The students develop skills in straightening, forming, soldering, welding, painting and aligning a damaged vehicle. In addition to the required technical learning, the related portion of the training begins to focus on employability and management skills. This aspect includes ordering parts, preparing estimates, writing repair orders, and generally developing good oral and written communication skills. ASE and NATEF certifications are available for qualified students.
