AUTOMOTIVE

BODY REPAIR (ABR)

MISSION: The Automotive Body Repair program is designed to teach students to repair damaged body and fender parts on vehicles. The program includes the latest repair technology, welding, shop safety, metal straightening, fiberglass repair and damage estimating. Students will obtain skills which include all phases of auto body repair.

Auto body repair work has variety and challenges. Each damaged vehicle presents a different problem. Using their broad knowledge of automotive construction and repair techniques, graduates of the program learn to develop appropriate methods for each job. Auto body technicians may specialize in structural and non structural repairs. Today, many of the non structural repairs involve plastic body parts so the technician must be able to remove the parts, identify the type and properties of the plastic used on the vehicle and determine the appropriate technique to repair the damage. This program

consists of one short certificate.
