In this exploratory course, students develop hands-on skills such as: manipulating, stretching, picking and and heat shrinking metal. Students learn the basic techniques associated with Oxyacetylene and MIG welding. They also develop skills and understanding associated with metal finishing including: application of plastic filler and sanding of surfaces. Paint application while creating a project they can take home .
A fee(50.00) is charged in Autobody 10 only to cover the cost of personal safety equipment (Respirator, safety glasses, ear plugs & gloves-which the student gets to keep)and project supplies & materials
This program builds on the fundamentals learned in Autobody 10. Students work on project vehicles to practice and learn. Skills developed are sheet metal repair, vehicle maintenance and repair, replacement panels and fabrication, refinishing, spot repair, and MIG welding techniques. Students may bring in their own project vehicles to work on, although this is not a requirement. Material costs are charged to students who bring in project vehicles.
Autobody 30A & 30B
This is an advanced course that builds on previous skills and develops new techniques. Students perform damage analysis and estimates for repairs. They perform advanced MIG welding techniques and plastic and fibreglass repair. Students also perform refinishing with base/clear in water-based materials. Students may bring in their own project vehicles to work on, although this is not a requirement. Material costs are charged to students who bring in project vehicles.
