CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Auto Collision Repair

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0188  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

Auto collision repair technicians possess the necessary skills to perform collision repair and refinishing according to the "manufacturer's specifications."  Using hand and power tools, they straighten bent frames and body sections, replace badly damaged parts, smooth out minor dents and creases, remove rust, fill small holes and renew painted surfaces. Auto collision repair technicians are employed by collision repair shops, new car dealerships, refinishing businesses and auto restoration shops.  Formal training is highly desirable, because advances in technology in recent years have greatly changed the structure, the components and even the materials used in automobiles. The Auto Collision Repair Program is certified by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF). Although this curriculum does not provide state certification, state certification tests are available at any Michigan Secretary of State Office.
