Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Areas of Study

The Collision Repair Technology Certificate, based on the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) curriculum developed by the National Automotive Technical Education Foundation (NATEF), prepares students for careers in the collision repair industry. Students learn to use hand and power tools to prepare and finish paint-damaged surfaces, repair and replace metal, glass, and electrical components, straighten and repair damaged frames, use modern collision estimating and parts look-up software, and perform basic electrical/electronic troubleshooting and repair of the complex systems in today’s automobiles. The certificate can be used as one of the technical disciplines required for the AAS in General Technology.
