This is a two-year course that teaches the skills necessary to perform collision repairs on all automobiles including the high-tech ones of today. Automobile repairs are increasing and changing each year. We make a point of teaching all the new techniques needed for these vehicles.

The collision repair industry is growing larger each year. It is rapidly becoming a $30 billion-a-year industry. It is not directly affected by the ups and downs in the economy; therefore, it does provide steady work.


NOTE: Dual enrollment credits are available through Penn College!
