Who is an Auto Body Repair Technician?

You love working with your hands, and with equipment and tools, and you truly love tinkering on cars. Straightening a car body is a specialized skill; without it, an expensive auto can be rendered worthless.

As the auto body technician, you are looking at damaged vehicles and determining the best course of action, you are informing customers what needs doing, and then you are working to get that car back into shape. This job requires a creative eye capable of effective problem solving, and a keen attention to detail for things such as paint touch ups, (if the colours don’t match, the car value decreases astronomically.)

  
Objectives -
Auto body Technician (formerly auto body collision repair)

This 26 week course will give you insight into all the various aspects of what it takes to get the vehicle in near to new condition.  It will teach you the basics - about paint touch ups to the advanced skills like how to assess and fix structural damage.

This certificate program is for individuals wishing to prepare for a career in auto body collision repair. Gain the skills necessary to demonstrate basic competency in welding, metalwork, plastics, surface prep and painting.

Course Outline - 

  • Understanding automobile construction
  • Using auto body hand tools
  • Body and paint shop procedures and safety
  • Mig welding
  • Basic sheet metal straightening
  • Sheet metal finishing using fillers
  • Planning and execution of repairs
  • Automotive plastics

Certificate -

Placement Assistance - Auto body Technician 
All graduates receive full placement support from the Automotive Training Centre.

The number of job openings is expected to exceed the number of seekers especially as the number of retiring professionals increases related to the number of skilled professionals seeking work.

There are far fewer young skilled professionals entering the work force compared to the number of professionals who will retire over the next ten years. So it is anticipated that there will be an ongoing increase in demand for professionals coming into the work force.

Career Paths - 
A career in the auto industry is especially timely as stats show an ‘above average’ industry outlook for growth potential and employment demand.

Add to that the fact that salaries for professions across the automotive industry rate equal to or better than similar professions in other industries, but with significantly less time required for training, apprenticeship, and on-the-job experience. 

You  can consider yourself one of the most employable people in the country.  Earning rates for auto body technicians average $29 000 to start and up to $48 000 within the first five years.

As an experienced auto body technician, you could move into a supervisory or management position at an auto body repair shop, a paint representative for a paint supply company, a sales representative for an automotive supply company, or an insurance adjuster or retail auto sales. 

Be fully prepared to take the next steps as a Journeyman Auto Body Technician.  Act today to reserve your place – without obligation. Contact us for more information and to reserve your seat in the next class intake.
