Custom Fabrication and Chassis Design (CVCFCD)
This program has been replaced by Custom Auto Body Fabrication and Chassis Design Advanced Certificate (CVABFC).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 Fabrication and Chassis Design advanced certificate expands on knowledge acquired in the Auto Body Repair program. Students working in a team environment will design, build, complete, and show a project vehicle. Students will learn techniques used in the construction of a custom automotive chassis. Areas of study will include various types of building materials and their uses, measurement, pattern development, mechanical drawing, fastener selection, MIG and TIG welding, and frame design. Modifications such as boxing, c-notching, motor mount design, and cross member construction will be explored. Additional information on suspension types, their design, and their construction will also be covered. Employment opportunities for students who acquire this certificate may include welder, metal fabricator, specialty shop technician, and race team technician.
In order to enroll in this program, students must complete the Auto Body Repair (CTAUBR) certificate with a grade of "B" or better in each course.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”—Wendy L., 48
