Collision Repair Technology


This program is designed to provide the student with a thorough understanding of the materials, methods, and refinishing techniques used in the repair and restoration of a damaged automobile body. Through classroom study, audiovisual presentations, and actual hands-on performance tasks, the student will learn the procedures necessary for the proper repair and refinishing of metal, fiberglass, and plastic components used in both unibody and conventional automobile construction. Students learn to use manufacturers’ manuals and parts catalogs to estimate and repair damage to vehicles and to maintain records of work completed. A career in this field is attractive because of relatively high wages and the challenge of skilled repair work. Technicians may find opportunities in a variety of areas such as in dealerships, self-employment, insurance, education, sales, and manufacturing industries. This program is located at the Oneida extension site at 180 Eli Lane, Oneida, Tennessee.
