Central Carolina Community College now offers the Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology program.
The program prepares individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills to repair, reconstruct and finish automobile bodies, fenders and external features. The program includes instruction in structural analysis, damage repair, nonstructural analysis, mechanical and electrical components, plastics and adhesives, painting and refinishing techniques, damage analysis and estimating.
“We are very excited to start the Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology diploma program,” said Drew M. Goodson, CCCC dean of career and technical education. “Collision repair is an in-demand field with great opportunities for students who demonstrate an interest in and aptitude for the knowledge and technical skills that we will teach in the program.”
The Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology diploma program is offered during the day in a new facility located at the West Harnett Center. The West Harnett Center is in the Western Harnett Industrial Park off N.C. 87. This newly constructed facility includes classrooms, automotive bays, and a new paint booth, all with the latest state-of-the-art technology.
Graduates will be prepared for entry-level employment in the collision repair field in body shops, dealerships and repair shops. The employment prospects for the collision repair field are strong. Demand for collision repair technicians is expected to increase by double-digit percentages over the next few years in both the region and the state.
