The entire course is designed around 16 months as an average for completion and is offered year round. A majority of the student’s training time is centered around “hands on” shop training projects. Our curriculum is based on ASE guidelines.
The collision repair students attend class five days a week. The Collision Repair program meets Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Successful completion of the program requires a minimum of a C (77) average at all exit levels and satisfactory attendance.
