Auto Body Junior/Senior Option

The Collision Repair program at Northwest Tech builds upon fundamentals learned early in your coursework to foster versatile, industry-ready skills by the time you graduate. We believe individuals grow through their own personal investigations; therefore our emphasis is on actual “hands-on” learning.

On our campus, you will gain experience in major collision repair, color matching, wheel alignment, advanced welding and much more. But, best of all, your entire experience in our Collision Repair program is completed on the most modern equipment in the industry today.

Our curriculum is directly related to trade standards and employment opportunities. As repair methods change, our curriculum is continuously updated to provide you with instruction on the safe and proper use of the latest tools, equipment, products and procedures.
