Skilled Trades, Auto, Fire Programs

  • Auto Body Career Training

    When a vehicle experiences an accident, for example a collision, one of the places that may become damaged is the auto body, and the person best suited to fix it is someone well trained in Collision Repair Trades. The auto body of a car or truck is as important as the engine and other parts it carries. Carefully constructed from materials ranging from chrome and steel to fibre glass or high tech carbon fibre, the outer layer of the car, sometimes known as the coach work, serves many purposes. It keeps the passengers inside the car safe, and the auto body often constructed to maximize fuel efficiency and the aerodynamics of the vehicle. Customizing this part of a vehicle, with paint and other add ons is one of the ways that people make their vehicles aesthetically distinct. After an accident, getting a vehicle road worthy means a thorough inspection from someone with the right qualifications and certifications, the sort of education that can be found at a mechanic school. Skilled technicians also know how to patch, replace or otherwise repair damage to an auto body, including automotive painting and refinishing.
  • Automotive detailing is a key part of the aesthetic of a vehicle. Whether the shiny finish, the upholstery and carpets or other decorative features, attention to auto detailing can also improve the sale value of a car or truck, or potentially help customers develop a unique look. It’s also an essential skillset to have in the event that a vehicle has experienced an accident. Although the auto body takes a separate skill set to repair, getting everything looking good as new can take a good hand with an airbrush. One possible place to take your auto detailing skills in a job in “dealer preparation”. Much like the people who help sell a house by setting it up to its best advantage before it is shown to potential buyers.  This may also include earning certification to prepare cars for delivery to places like a show room, giving you a chance to work with new as well as used vehicles. Alternatively, this is also one of the automotive careers that allows you to work independently. If you choose this path, you’ll be working for yourself, helping car dealerships get their stock up in shape before it goes out in the lot or even decorating cars to the customized tastes of their owners.
