The Auto Body Technician - Non-Structural Repair certificate prepares students to perform non-structural duties 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 non-structural repair classes offered once a year. The shop is designed to simulate an actual body shop and has a full line of equipment and supplies necessary to perform non-structural repairs.
The Non-Structural Repair certificate graduates will be prepared to:
straighten damaged metal
use body fillers
perform plastic repairs
disassemble and reassemble cars, trucks, vans and SUV’s
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.
