Auto Collision Repair

  • The auto repair industry is growing by leaps and bounds as the design of cars and trucks change to meet safety and style requirements. Today’s vehicles are designed with materials that absorb energy upon impact. This assures higher safety ratings but also means vehicles require more intricate repair.
    Highly-trained and skilled technicians are at a premium in the Miami Valley and the Auto Collision Repair program at Greene County Career Center is designed to meet the industry’s needs. From body repair to repainting, attention to detail is key in this exciting, challenging career area. You gain experience repairing and painting project vehicles in the lab while learning all types of refinishing, sheet metal shaping on bodies and fenders, uni-body and light frame straightening, welding, painting, glass replacement, shop management and job estimating and pricing. The program has also delved into restoration projects that include antique cars, beverage machines, gas pumps, utility vehicles, bicycles, etc. as seen on television programs like American Pickers and American Restoration.
