    Overview

    i-Car LogoWelcome to SCC’s Auto Collision Repair Technology program, an introduction to the collision repair industry that includes estimating, metal repair, welding, refinishing, and detailing. Students also have the opportunity to work on their own vehicles, giving them real-world, on-the-job experience. The program is partnered with I-CAR Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (www.i-car.com) following the I-CAR Professional Development Program Education Edition. This bridges the gap between the classroom and the shop floor efficiently and effectively as the comprehensive curriculum offers the student the same training that professional technicians receive. Following the curriculum program as designed, the student will graduate with the Platinum designation in non-structural and refinishing, which is the same level of recognition that working technicians receive at no cost to the student or employer. The student also has the opportunity to complete I-CAR Welding Training and Certification at a reduced rate. Students gain the entry-level basics of auto collision repair and master the skills required for today’s structural and nonstructural body components and the advance refinishing processes.
