The Auto Body Repair certificate program offers a number of career options by providing students the opportunity to earn a one-year certificate. Most of our students go directly into the workforce in technical or mechanical jobs, while some go on to start their own business. A background in auto body repair can be a valuable asset in a number of careers: collision repair technician, automotive detailer, insurance estimator, and custom auto builder/painter. The Auto Body Repair program consists of 42 hours of coursework and commonly takes three semesters to complete. Range of study varies from shop safety to metallurgy to paint restoration.
