The automotive body repair program is designed to prepare the student for employment in the automotive repair business as well as to meet the needs of those who want to upgrade their skills or meet some personal objectives in auto body repair. The program leads to a nine-month certificate or an Associate of Applied Science degree.
The nine-month program is designed for full-time students, and the courses are offered in a sequence of blocks. Each block is three weeks in length. Classes are held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The automotive body repair courses are designed to prepare students for the ASE certification exam.
- Small class sizes. The instructor knows you and has time to help you. Classes are a mix of classroom theory and hands-on application of skills.
- The auto body program at LCCC is ASE/NATEF certified. This certification means there is an outside automotive source checking the curriculum, tools and equipment to ensure everything we do is current, up-to-date, and what employers are looking for.
- The program is also part of the I-CAR® Industry Training Alliance. I-CAR® is an organization dedicated to the continuing education of collision industry personnel. When students graduate from Auto Body Repair program, they will be eligible to apply for and receive I-CAR® points. The points are a great resume’ building tool.
