Auto Restoration Technology Program

The Auto Restoration Technology Program will train students in the steps involved in restoring, welding, customizing, fabricating, custom painting, various ways of metal stripping and custom design. Along with the use of specialty tools and equipment used in today’s custom shops.

The first year in this program is identical to the first year of the Auto Collision Technology program of study. Therefore, students could complete the two-year Auto Collision program and stay an additional year to complete the 3rd and 4th semesters of the Auto Restoration Program. Otherwise, students would follow the Auto Restoration program of study and complete their degree in two years.
