(Jefferson Davis Campus)

Collision Repair Technology is an instructional program designed to prepare students for entry level into the collision repair and refinishing trade. Upon completion of this program, the students will be prepared for beginning positions as body, frame, and refinish technicians. Students will be provided theory and practical repair and refinish work, beginning with basic applications and progressing on to heavy-collision repairs requiring major body and frame alignment and panel replacement. The instruction includes all phases necessary to teach collision repair, including glass replacement, welding, replacement of hardware and trim items, cosmetic repairs, and structural repairs.

This program may lead to an Associate in Applied Science of Occupational Education Degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from MGCCC. Where a transfer to a senior college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with a community college counselor for advisement.

All students completing a career or technical program must complete either the MS-CPAS (Mississippi Career Planning and Assessment System) or an MGCCC Board- approved Technical Attainment Assessment where applicable. See your advisor for further details.
