The Auto Body Technician - Structural Repair certificate prepares students to perform structural repairs required within the body shop of most collision repair companies.
This program consists of two quarters of training. Students will spend their first quarter of training in a transportation core curriculum offered every quarter. The second quarter will consist of four structural repair classes offered once a year. The shop is designed to simulate an actual body shop and includes state-of-the-art frame rack and electronic measuring system.
The Structural Repair certificate graduates will be able to:
measure and analyze structural damage
straighten structural damage
remove and replace welded on panels
apply correct corrosion protection to vehicles
Lake Washington Institute of Technology does not offer every course each quarter. It is the student’s responsibility to consult the Class Schedule and work out an individual schedule with an adviser or counselor. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.
