AUTO COLLISION REPAIR
The Auto Collision Repair program at Maxwell is widely
recognized as one of the leading technical education
programs in the state. If you have a passion for cars, this
industry-certified program will teach you how to perform
automotive vehicle repair and refinishing skills such as panel
replacement, metal straightening, welding, and automotive
painting. You will bring actual damaged vehicles back to
their original condition using state-of-the-art equipment and
technology in the automotive lab.
During the first semester you will learn about safety, auto
collision terminology, hand and power tools, and estimation.
Teamwork and good communication skills will be emphasized,
as these are critical to your success in the industry. In the
second semester, you will spend three six-week shifts focusing
on three areas: Welding, Refinishing, and Metal Repair. You
will have a chance to put your new automotive skills to the
test and compete for recognition and scholarships through
the FORD/AAA Student Auto Skills competition and the
SkillsUSA competition.
The program is certified by the National Automotive Technicians
Education Foundation (NATEF), Automotive Service Excellence
(ASE), and is a proud member of the Industry Training Alliance
for the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair
(I-CAR). The Auto Collision Repair Advisory Board features over
fifteen members representing area dealerships, automobile
manufacturers, auto body shops, and more. These relationships
can lead to internships and Technical Apprenticeships, helping
to jumpstart your career.
Despite automotive careers being incorrectly labeled as a
“dirty” kind of job, the industry actually offers high-tech, wellpaying jobs. The skills you gain in the Auto Collision Repair
program can lead to excellent jobs as an estimator, body repair
technician, refinishing technician, or employment in a shop
office or insurance claims office.
