Haywood Community College’s Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology program prepares individuals to become qualified technicians who possess the diverse skills required to perform refinishing techniques on automobile bodies and to diagnose and repair mechanical and electrical systems. HCC is the only community college in the western part of the state to offer an Associate degree in this program.
The Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology curriculum has the latest technology in vehicle frame and unibody techniques. Students train on the same up-to-date equipment that most modern collision repair facilities use every day including two down draft, baking paint booths and a computer-based laser measuring system that will measure the structure of a vehicle in three dimensions, which most insurance companies require collision shops to have.
At HCC, the instructors have over 70 years combined experience in the Auto Body-Collision Repair and Refinishing industry. Detail and quality workmanship are emphasized in the program with hands-on training. Students are taught the proper techniques to repair and refinish vehicles and return them to pre-accident condition and acceptable industry standards.
Graduates of the program should be qualified to take the National Institute for Automotive Service (ASE) certification examinations and also for entry-level employment in automotive dealerships, independent repair shops, or through self-employment, as collision and refinishing technicians.
