Why Collision Repair Technology?

Collision Repair Technicians perform duties from inspecting damaged vehicles for structural damage to repairing damaged body parts and occasionally realigning frames and chassis to repair structural damage. According to the US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there will be over 15,000 automotive body and glass repairers needed in the next decade to meet industry demand. Most employers prefer to hire repair technicians who have completed a formal training program in automotive body repair or refinishing. The median average hourly pay an automotive body and glass repairer will earn is $19.41/hour or $40,370 annually*.
