Automotive Collision Repair

Today’s College for Tomorrow’s World

This program is being discontinued. Current students should see advisor to make plans for program completion.
No new students will be accepted.

Program Information
The Automotive Collision Repair program is designed to educate and train persons to become an entry level technician to repair damaged vehicles. Students enrolled in this program are provided with theory and hands-on experiences pertaining to personal safety rules and procedures, structural frame straightening, non-structural metal repair, paint and refinishing, welding, plastic repairs and vehicle estimating.
Occupational Choices
Overall employment of automotive body and glass repairers is projected to grow 8.2 percent from 20192029, about average for all occupations.
Despite limited employment growth, about 15,700 openings for automotive body and glass repairers are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Most of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire. The best opportunities in automotive body repair will be available for those with industry certification and training in automotive body repair and refinishing, and in collision repair.

Average Full-Time Wage
The median annual wage for automotive body and related repairers was $43,580 in 2019. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $26,710, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $73,470.
