Ohio Technical College offers a comprehensive Collision Repair and Refinishing Program that teaches hands-on training for a variety of auto body and refinishing applications.
The 18-month ASE certified I-CAR-based Collision Repair and Refinishing course offers 70 full-size vehicles as student training aids. Students start out with basic safety and non-structural dent repair and build up to welding and custom paint. The OTC Collision Repair and Refinishing Program teach students how to write estimates, order replacement parts, perform frame restoration, measure three-dimensionally and conduct damage repair analysis. Students spend an additional 12 weeks on mechanical and electrical component renovation, as well as 12 weeks on how to expertly mix, match and use paint according to EPA guidelines.
Additionally, OTC offers a specialized 12-week custom paint and graphic program that allows students to explore the more artistic side of painting, special effects and graphics design with an emphasis on airbrushing. The campus has two paint booths for students to use while painting or airbrushing and the paint is supplied to the college by Sherwin-Williams.
"Students can earn an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology providing them with the training needed to become well-rounded Collision Repair Specialists," says Jordan Brenner, director of enrollment, OTC. "Our skilled Collision Repair and Refinishing instructors are committed to preparing students for rewarding careers in an auto dealer paint shop, collision repair facility, or even starting their own business."
