Custom Auto Body Technician (CVCABT)
This program has been replaced by Custom Auto Body Fabrication and Chassis Design Advanced Certificate (CVABFC). Students currently enrolled need to complete it by the end of the Spring/Summer 2017 semester.
If you have questions about this program please contact a program advisor or contact a general student advisor.
The Custom Auto Body Technician advanced certificate focuses on advanced body and paint techniques used to customize automobiles and turn them into "rolling showpieces." Working in teams, students will build, complete and show a project vehicle. Students will learn advanced sheet metal fabrication techniques and how to use the specialty tools needed to accomplish these tasks.
Other topics such as candies, pearls, tri-stage paint jobs, and the application of custom graphics will be discussed. Upon acquiring this advanced certificate, employment possibilities include specialty shop technician, custom paint technician, and collision repair technician.
In order to enroll in this program, students must complete the Auto Body Repair (CTAUBR) certificate program with a grade of "B" or better in each course.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”—F. Robertson
