Collision Repair Technology
This program teaches techniques in how to repair damaged auto body parts and the painting of repaired vehicles. Students learn to use hand and power tools appropriate to the trade. Students use the shop's paint booth when applying the finishing paint(s) to vehicles. Physical demands require students to bend, stoop, and to work in dusty conditions. Students with allergies or who are opposed to physical work and getting dirty should consider some other program. There are many employment opportunities for trained collision repair technicians in the greater Mobile area. Further training at the post-secondary level is also an option for program completers.
