Collision Technology

The global automotive collision repair market size was estimated at $167.76 billion in 2016 and is expected to enjoy sustained growth for the foreseeable future. The steady increase in number of automobile insurance policy subscriptions in addition to technological advancements in the automobile sector are expected to propel market growth. All of this translates into tremendous job security and mobility.

Repairing and restoring damaged vehicles to their pristine condition is very rewarding. A basic talent, such as an eye for color and dimensions, is only the beginning to a successful career in Collision industry. In Collision Technology, students will be trained in wide variety of state-of-the-art concepts and equipment through which you will develop your trade-area skills and competencies, a positive work ethic, a strong sense of achievement, and a variety of social skills in order to obtain an entry level position in the Collision Repair Industry. By participating in a competency-based curriculum, students will establish a solid foundation for furthering your trade-area education beyond high school. Additionally, they will master skills in all required and recommended shop health and safety practices through OSHA Career Safe and SP/2 Safety Training.

Consistent with current educational trends, we have pivoted from traditional textbooks and materials to digital resources, specifically the Inter-Industry Conference of Automotive Collision Repair (I-CAR) Electronic Curriculum. Students utilize Chromebooks in conjunction with interactive instructional technology that aligns to national, state and district recommendations and standards. Beginning in Grade 9, with the aid of these instructional tools and technologies, students will create electronic portfolios that demonstrate their competency in the methods and tooling required to complete given tasks and stimulate further reflection on their skills and performance levels.
