Auto Body

The Auto Collision and Automotive Refinishing Pathway will prepare students for entry level positions in the auto body industry, providing students with the theory and practical knowledge necessary to develop a degree of skill that will make them employable in an auto body shop or related occupation. There is a continuous demand for qualified individuals in the body repair business. Many individuals will specialize in either painting or body repair. The instruction in Auto Body covers theory and practice of preparing vehicles for repainting, including dent removal, welding, panel straightening, major collision and shop management. Upon completion of this program housed on the ECO campus, students will receive a Certificate in Automotive Refinishing and progress toward an Associate in Applied Science degree in Auto Body from San Juan Community College.
