Learn real skills by doing real repairs as part of your studies. We teach the current standards, from fixing small dents to rebuilding the bodies of wrecked or damaged vehicles. You learn the materials used in filler compounds, the colors and chemicals of paints, welding and cutting, design and installation of trim, cost estimating, and preparation for finish work. Body work is in great demand throughout the country. Knowledge of the latest technology is essential for filling these jobs. We teach you how to use fiberglass, plastic, aluminum welding, and water-based materials.
The Collision Repair Technology program at Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (formerly Bowling Green Technical College) is accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF), and students have the opportunity to take tests leading to certification by ASE, the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.
