This program provides you with a basic working knowledge of all areas of metal working and spray painting. You will develop the skills and knowledge to repair damaged vehicles, including all phases of autobody repair and painting. 

You will learn to weld and use trade tools and how to work with and shape sheet metal. You will also learn the techniques required to realign and straighten the bodies and frames of cars. The program also teaches proper methods of patching, finishing, and preparing a panel for paint application.

You will learn how to perform the necessary repairs and replacements to restore vehicles to their pre-damaged condition, and how to determine how much and what kind of work is needed for each vehicle.

Safety in the work environment is stressed.
