The Automobile Body Collision Technology Program is designed to prepare graduates for employment as auto body technicians. Emphasis is on developing skills in straightening and restoring metal and fiberglass automobile bodies to original condition. Students will use industry-standard equipment on current model unibody vehicles. Instruction includes how to realign body-frame units and sheet metal, remove dents, replace panels and glass, diagnose collision damage and apply the latest two-stage and three-stage refinishing systems. Students learn how to repair high-tech plastics, repair and replace trim and brightwork, and restore corrosion protection.
The St. Cloud Technical and Community College's Auto Body Collision Technology Program is ASE Certified, and graduates are prepared for the Auto Body Repair Excellence examinations. The program is certified by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation, Inc. (NATEF) and our instructors are certified by the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR).
