This advanced certificate was developed for the individual who would like to focus on a career in the collision refinishing industry. Using modules and carefully selected vehicles, students develop and apply advanced painting skills while refinishing vehicles to pre-accident condition. Areas of study include single stage, tri-stage, and base-coat/clear-coat paint systems. Additional topics such as overall paint jobs, color theory, and the tinting of factory colors to obtain a blended match will be covered. Current NATEF, I-Car, and ASE standards are closely followed to ensure that students are ready for employment in today's competitive work place.
