The Auto Body Collision Repair program is a National Automotive Technical Educational Foundation (NATEF) certified program taught by an ASE Master-Certified instructor. The Automotive Youth Educational System (AYES) is a collaboration between manufacturers, select local shops, parts stores, paint sales, and Grant Career Center. Students will get instruction in the most recent I-CAR car collision curriculum.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
Structural Inspection and Repair: Students will be measuring and diagnosing structural damage, as well as repairing and replacing damaged structural components.
Nonstructural Inspection and Repair: Cosmetic external body panel repair and replacement, including plastic and steel/aluminum. MIG welding is used to connect and cut aluminum, steel, and other materials.
Electrical and Mechanical systems: Inspect and repair electrical and mechanical damage caused by a collision. Repairs to the electrical and wiring harness, suspension, brakes, and cooling systems are among the topics covered.
Painting and Refinishing: Using single-stage, basecoat-clearcoat, and tri-coat refinishing procedures, restore and repair the car's exterior body and paint finish. Check and identify the substrate, finish type, surface quality, and film thickness; inspect, clean, and assess the condition of spray guns and related equipment.
