All CMTHS programs integrate college preparatory coursework with an emphasis on technical skills. Recent graduates from the Collision Repair program are attending Automotive Training Center, Universal Technical Institute, Montgomery County Community College, WyoTech, and Penn-College of Technology.
Collision Repair Technicians are skilled workers who repair minor and major defects such as scratches, chips, dents, surface rust and rust outs. The technician also welds torn metal, replaces damaged parts, and estimates repairs. A person in this trade should have the desire to work with metal and finishing metals such as paints, solvents, and waxes.
The program is A.S.E. (Automotive Service Excellence) and ICAR gold certified. The student can receive a certification as a certified Estimator by completing the A.D.P. (Automatic Data Processing) program while in the Collision Repair program. Among the areas of study are Collision Repair and Paint Technician.
The nationally recognized curriculum, I-Car prepares students to remove excessively damaged fenders, panels and grills using wrenches and cutting tools and attaching or manufacturing replacements by bolting, gluing or MIG welding them in place.
Other skills taught in this course include dent removal, body filling using plastic filler, fiberglass, and grinding, sanding and applying base coat, and clear coat paints using today’s newest technology. This well equipped lab contains state of the art equipment such as a prep station and a down draft spray booth.
In a new, state-of-the-art facility, a caring and highly qualified professional staff share their skills while challenging and encouraging their students.

The students are able to obtain a variety of state and nationally recognized certifications and licenses.
Students have the option to participate in two nationally recognized career and technical student organizations – SkillsUSA and Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA). Students can compete at the district, state and national levels.
