Automotive Collision Technician

Why Choose the Automotive Collision Technician Program?

As long as cars will be on the road, we'll have a need for automotive collision technicians. This program teaches students how to identify, evaluate and diagnose collision damage and repair needs and gives them the skills to carry those repairs through to completion.

Our Automotive Restoration & Customization - Finishing Certificate offers the training to restore an old classic to its former glory or take a stock vehicle and turn it into a wholly unique ride. Our 85,000 square-foot automotive facility features state-of-the-industry paint rooms, computer labs, classrooms and glassed-in shop areas, and our automotive programs have won numerous national awards.

If you love cars and have an eye for taking something broken and doing the work needed to repair and restore it back to its original condition, this might be the program and career path for you.
