This curriculum is designed to instruct students in the repair of damaged bodies and body parts of motor vehicles such as automobiles and light trucks. On completion of this course of study, students can examine damaged vehicles to estimate cost of repairs, remove upholstery, accessories, electrical and hydraulic window-and-seat operating equipment, and trim to gain access to vehicle body and fenders. Students will acquire skills in straightening bent frames using hydraulic jacks and pulling devices. Students will also know how to straighten, file, grind, and sand repaired surfaces using power tools and hand tools, and to refinish repaired surfaces after performing body repairs.
